Paperback books, also known as soft backs, use thick paper or paperboard cover and are usually perfect bound (bound with glue). We use a 240gsm cover card which is wrapped around printed book blocks. The book blocks can be printed on anything from an 80gsm munken bookwove off-white or cream coloured paper to heavier paperweights such as 170gsm coated papers for photo books. We have a variety of paper types to choose from so please get in touch if you require anything not listed below.
Paperback book printing is a popular publishing option and for good reason. Connecting with a reader on the most popular level, paperbacks took the publishing world by storm in the 19th Century and have certainly stood the test of time; maintaining their position as one of the most prevalent forms of printing out there. This common book printing option is popular amongst those looking to print novels, children’s books, poetry and journals.
Softcovers offer a professional finish and provide a high-quality option for reduced weight and cost. As an established, independent printer, we contain the technology, the experience and a dedicated team who have been producing stunning paperback books for many years.
