TAFprint offer our clients great flexibility in choosing the finishing solutions for the production of books, quality of materials used and the overall product. TAFprint manages to meet high quality standards, fully incorporated with optimization of production. Here we present a description of the cover types that TAFprint produces and technological requirements for each one.
Thermo-gluing/ Perfect Binding / Paperback
This type of hotmelt binding is suitable for novels, or reference books. Cover can be printed on either two-side coated boards or on one-side coated board (the so-called packaging boards). Recommended for this type of gluing is that the body is printed on uncoated paper.
Perfect binding of coated papers
Here we can offer you standard hotmelt gluing of coated paper or PUR (Poly Urethane Reactive) gluing. PUR gluing occupies a leading position in the production of magazines and books printed on coated paper. It lasts longer than the hotmelt glue and allows flexibility in opening of the issues because of its additional strength.
Perfect binding and thread sewing
Thread-sewing the body gives extra strength to the book.
