Paperback books are bound using PUR binding


Book Partners offers a variety of size options. Standard sizes are portrait sizes of 5.5” x 8.5”, 6” x 9”, 7” x 10” and 8.5” x 11”, but other sizes, including oblong or landscape can be done.


Covers are printed on heavy stock and laminated in your choice of gloss, linen or matte finish lamination before binding. Full color covers are printed from a file you provide. You would provide a single file that would include the front cover, spine, back cover and bleeds. Use our online template to assist with the layout, design and size.
