Hardback binding

Also known as hard bound, hardback or case bound, case binding is one of the most common types of book binding for hard bound books.

Thanks to their rigid covers, hardback books are more durable and longer lasting than their alternatives. Although slightly more expensive to produce, they will stand the test of time and will look great on your bookshelf for years to come.

Hardback books can be created in quantities from as low as a single book upwards.

A hardback book is cased into a board casing with strong glue. This is a durable, long-lasting binding that gives the feel of a premium, quality product. Great for special editions, gifts and occasions.

Using state-of-the-art machinery, our experienced team can take any document (reports, thesis, dissertations, brochures, booklets, presentations, manuals, or fictional work such as novels or diaries etc) and turn it into a smart and professional looking finished hardback book.

The hard cover options use our new modular kit system: your document is encased between hard-wearing black buckram covers and clamped with a metal spine for maximum durability and a premium finish.

Depending on the hard cover option chosen, we then letter the cover (Book with Cover Print), the spine (Library Binding) or spine and cover (Premium Book Binding) in gold foil.

It could not be simpler to order: just use our online printing shop 24/7 from anywhere with internet access, so you are not bound by opening hours when you are ready to order. Upload your documents in a variety of formats, accept the default settings (or choose single or double-sided, colour, black and white or mixed printing), confirm the cost, pay by credit card, and you are done!

We then print, bind and deliver your document in as little as 3 working days depending on order volume and location.
