    Please note: 

    Our hard cover books are generally not suitable for Planners, Diaries or Journals

    We recommend that for anything that needs to be written in like Journals and Diaries you really need to consider a Section Sewn, Twin Loop or Spiral binding to assist with lay-flat properties for easier writing in and for increased durability.

    Unfortunately - we don't offer Section Sewing - Alternative solutions we can help with are Coil and Spiral Binding.

Which Design option do I need?

What does Kinds or Multiple Sets mean?

What are my Delivery Options?

How do I confirm my order?

We all know that content is king, but people will judge your book by the cover – and the binding – and the printing – before they ever read it.

Whether you need a single hard cover perfect bound book, a small quantity for a high-end presentation or family gifts, a large order, or fluctuating quantities to keep up with changing demands, Same Day Printing's professional Bindery will help you get quality books fast.

Hard Cover Perfect Bound Books have a 3mm board cover and square spine, and accommodate 40-400 pages. This process creates a book of substance, creating a quality first impression.

Custom sizes and a choice of paper, combined with a full colour printed cover, makes hard cover books hard to pass up. 

* Please note that these books are standard perfect bound only, we don't presently offer section sewn or burst binding for our short run perfect bound books.  For more about our binding options, please visit Binding Options

Please note that we use Planamelt R binding glue which is the very latest binding glue offering nearly the same binding strength as PUR (polyurethane reactive) but the benefits and flexibility of EVA glue.

Would you like to explore additional binding options? We have a large range of binding options available for our fast business card printing services - you can access all of these including express custom soft cover perfect bound books, lay-flat wire bound and spiral bound books, super fast saddle stitched book printing, notepads, and more at our main books menu page.


What does 'page count' mean when requesting a book printing quote?
The 'page count' refers to the total number of individual pages in your book. For clarity, each side of a paper sheet that is printed on counts as one page. This means if you have content on both sides of a sheet, it counts as two pages.

Remember, accurate page count information helps us provide you with a precise quote and ensures that your book printing project meets your expectations. If you have any more questions or need assistance with your book printing needs, don't hesitate to contact our friendly team. Let's make your book printing project happen together!
