palamides understands the common challenges of perfect binding and works to address them:
- Outsourcing perfect binding can be slow and complicated, requiring attention to design, print and material considerations
- The choice of paper and ink can have an impact on the perfect binding process
- Content can be lost in the gutter of the bound book
- Smaller print runs of perfect bound jobs require specific processing workflows tailored to individual needs
- End customers prefer one-stop shopping for their printing needs
- Pages tend to reopen, causing inconvenience
