AKA Case Bound Books
Perfect for special edition biographies, school yearbooks, or limited editions.
Everyone loves hardback books. They're just that little bit more special, which means that they should be reserved for special occasions and special books.
Hardback books are more durable, more impressive, and really stand out on a bookshelf. Whilst you can print any book as a hardback, we recommend that you print hardbacks sparingly. Whilst they are more impressive than paperbacks, they also cost a bit more. It's also worth remembering that paperbacks outsell hardbacks significantly.
All that being said, the benefits of printing in hardback are significant. The final product is incredible and they last a really long time. Which is why they are perfect for yearbooks, limited editions or biographies.
We have in-house case binding machinery, which means that we are able to print short-run hardback books.
We produce hardback books in; A5, A4, Royal or a custom size of your choice.
Different types of books work best in different sizes. For example, a yearbook works best in A4, whereas a novel would be best in A5 or Royal.

We can print in full colour, black and white, or black and white with colour inserts.
The decision is ultimately yours, and there are a number of reasons for choosing each option. Colour printing is more expensive, but if your book contains images or annotations it may be necessary
If your book conatains a small number of images or annotations that you would like to be printed in colour, then black or white printing with colour inserts will most likely be the best choice. This gives you the benefits of cheaper black and white printing, whilst keeping colour where it is needed.

What material is used for the hardback case?
