Why print a Paperback?

A Paperback (also called softcover or perfect bound) is understood to mean a book with a flexible cover, refined with a matte or glossy laminate. A paperback is the best choice for books that will be widely sold and read. Or books that consumers can easily take with them on a trip. Softcovers are often used for commercial books that are sold in high print runs at small margins. It is because perfect bound books are cheaper to print and can, therefore, offer a lower sales price. The disadvantage of paperbacks is that the books can be damaged relatively easily with frequent use. But that doesn’t have to be a bad thing, depending on your target group. Need help making the best choice for your book? New Energy Printing is happy to provide consultation without obligation.

Type of binding Paperback

The two most common binding methods for softcover books are ‘perfect binding’ and ‘sewn binding.’ The perfect binding is the most economical choice; this binding is suitable for books made from uncoated paper types such as wood-free offset paper. This method of binding is especially recommended if you want to print a novel book or catalog. If you print a book made of a coated paper type such as matte MC, silk MC, or satin MC, we recommend that you provide your book with a sewn-stitched binding. Due to the paper’s smooth structure, it is good to give the binding extra strength. An additional advantage of a sewn binding method is that less glue can be used so that your book will fall more open compared to an perfect binding.

When to print a paperback

Printing or printing a ‘perfect bound’ is not only cheap, but the selling price of a paperback is also much lower. It can be of benefit to the bookstore. Softcovers have a much higher checkout rate than hardcover books. That is why most bestsellers are sold as a paperback. Not only the appearance is essential. Also, the fact that a softcover is straightforward and fast to print is an advantage. Printing a paperback could take, depending on several factors, around three weeks. It is, in general, one week shorter than a hardcover. So if you are about to print a bestseller and want a beautiful book, a paperback book is the right choice.
