We have many customers that print material to showcase the products and services they offer. Perfect bound catalogs are one of the best looking methods to showcase your products and services.
These catalogs are glue bound like a soft cover book, with the inner pages glued into the spine of a cardstock cover. Check out our Perfect Book Cover Tutorial for help designing your cover.

To avoid compromising the spine / glue we recommend you have a minimum .50"-.75" binding margin depending on the number of pages in your catalog. If you have less margin than this, then you may need to press the book down (more flat) to see the contents of the page. Doing this can cause the spine / pages to come loose over time depending on how hard you press down.
If you are worried how the margins on your catalog will look, we recommend ordering a hard copy proof so you can see a physical copy and make any necessary changes before we print all of your catalogs.
All perfect bound catalogs can have printed spines, but the number of pages in the catalog determines if you can have text printed on the spine. To see how thick your spine should be or if you can have text on it, visit our perfect book cover setup page.
Perfect Book Cover Tutorial
If you have page numbers in your file and are printing double sided, it is recommended to have alternating page numbers so they stay on the outer edges of the catalog. If you have your page numbers all on the left or right side of your pages, then half of the page numbers will be in the gutter of the catalog making it hard to navigate. For a professional look when printing double sided, alternate the location of the page numbers.
