We not only offer perfect or case- bound books. We have a number of bespoke printing and finishing options available:

 

  • Saddle-stitched booklets

  • Drilling for binder sets with tabs
  • Shrink wrapping
  • Embossing

Perfect paperback books, every time!

This binding technique is used to create shop-ready paperback books, and is the most popular and least expensive finishing option.

We produce in excess of 25,000 perfect-bound a week, to a high standard using extremely strong Henkel glue on our binding line.

How we perfect bind your book:

  • The digitally printed full-colour cover is laminated on our automatic laminator
  • The printed loose-leaf sheets leave the black and white digital printing presses ready collated
  • They enter the bindery where the book block is gathered and milled along the spine edge to create a rough surface
  • The glue is applied and the cover is creased before being wrapped around and adhered to the text block
  • The books are trimmed to final size
  • Your books are then carefully packed and despatched as requested

Ebook conversion through Printondemand-worldwide

At Boldmedia-Worldwide we can convert your printed book into an ebook. In fact, it doesn’t have to be a book. If you have a publication you want available in electronic form, we can help!

What’s involved?

Our ebook conversion service, requires you to provide a PDF, Word or InDesign file of the work you require converting, and we will do the rest. Other file formats accepted subject to review.

We know that security of content is important to you so all our conversions are carried out in the UK.

What’s more, we use actual human beings to make sure the electronic version of your publications is every bit as elegant and readable as the printed version (where ebook reader format permits).

A computer can’t grasp the subtleties of style and syntax that make your publications unique, so we never rely on them 100%.
