Perfect bound books

Perfect Bound books are also called soft cover books, a method were the pages and cover are glued together at the spine with a strong, yet flexible thermal glue. The other three sides of the book are then trimmed as needed to give them clean perfect edges.  Perfect bound books have a square, printable spine and the cover is usually made from heavy paper or cardstock that is heavier than the interior pages.  The sections are milled in the back and notches are applied into the spine allowing the glue to penetrate in the spine of the book.  If desired, the cover can be clear-coated to provide durability and improve appearance. Perfect bound book printing makes for a clean and professional presentation with the pages sitting neatly and evenly.  Also, this binding method is a less expensive way compared to case and hard bound binding.

Board books

A board book is a binding format and is exactly what it sounds like; they are produced in many shapes and sizes. Publishers usually make the book out of thick paperboard or binding two or more pages together. If you compare these books to hardcover books, the difference is towards the cover.  In Board Books, the entire book, down to the pages, are of paperboard, so that it can take wear and tear. However, publishers cannot use this method to publish all the books coming to them. Board books are usually exclusively for children’s books mainly because the entire book is more durable. We all know that children do not handle material things very well as they do not understand their value yet. As such, children can easily tear off pages of hardcover books, perhaps just leaving the covers intact. With board books, children will have a hard time tearing the entire book apart. As your best board book printer we will ensure the safeties and the standard regulations are enforced when producing board books.

It is remarkable how many games are still played today and there are endless possibilities of new games emerging in the gaming market. We cannot forget the big boom of games with game boards and cards are taking many forms in quantities, sizes, materials and gameplay.

Board Game

Board games can be referred to as tabletop games, one that contain a board and components, which move around the board based on a set of rules. While all board games share that definition, games have no standards for size, components or materials because each game is designed and built around its playability.

Rule/ Instruction Book

A game cannot exist without standardized rules for a group of players to follow. There are many ways to display instructions with your game, while some print them right on the box others print a booklet. For board games, print the instructions on the inside of the box, a cost effective option for card games is to print the rules on your tuck box or on an extra card included in your deck.
