Both are great options, but the decision rests with expectations concerning the book’s durability and longevity. Although the finished product looks similar, with the result being a neatly bound softcover book, the correct choice of glue can be critical. Factors such as handling and storage are also important considerations.
Twin Loop will guide you through this decision to select the best option for your project using either EVA or PUR glue.
EVA Perfect Binding was developed originally to bind paperback books. The process is also known simply as 'Perfect Binding'. You might also see it referred to as ‘Traditional’ or ‘Conventional’ Perfect Binding, with glue used to bind the interior pages and front covers together.
EVA Perfect Binding is a popular choice when you need a good quality, economical bind for a softcover book and is ideal for brochures, manuals, reports, magazines, catalogues, and yearbooks.
An advantage of the EVA Perfect Binding process is that the books are ready for final trimming almost immediately, allowing for quick production and faster turnaround times.
Twin Loop can bind books from minimum size 148 x 210mm (A5) to maximum 308 x 308mm and accommodate French Folds.
If your book is smaller than A5, create an A5 book with extra bleed, and we will trim it down to your required size.
