We can offer both Saddle Stitch (staple bound) and Perfect Bound (glue bound) soft cover books in a wide variety of sizes. Book may be ordered in print runs as low as just 10 books and volume discounts are available at runs of 100 books (5% discount) and 250 books (10% discount). Books may be ordered ala carte where you select your book trim size, standard glossy cover or a laminated cover, Cover weight, your page count, paper type, number of B&W pages, number of full color pages and finally saddle stitch vs perfect binding.
