The Business Box loves printing books of all shapes and sizes. Working with local authors to help them put their ideas onto paper into a bookstore-ready book is rewarding. The Business binds books using perfect binding, with a glued spine, or spiral binding, Booklet printing includes saddle stitching (stapling) into booklets. We look forward to helping guide you in your self-publishing efforts.
Perfect Bound Books
Your typical paperback novel is a great example of a perfect bound book. The Business Box has been printing perfect bound books for Montreal area authors for 15 years. One of our first projects, Sweep, a self-published story by local rugby star Marty Silverstone, has had 17 print runs! Get your copy today! We have also printed magnificent children's books and photo books using perfect binding, illustrated by local artists.
Printing Children's Books
Children's books are special because they tend to be illustrated with colour drawings to hold the reader's attention. The Business Box prints children's books and usually uses thicker, and often coated, papers to help the books withstand multiple readings, because children often like to re-read the same book.
Although Spiral bound books look great, it is often much more practical for users to reference a spiral bound book which stays open easily. For example, one local company, Sports First Responder loved the look of perfect bound manuals for their courses, but after a couple of years, they returned to spiral bound course materials.
The Business Box's most popular binding format is stapling. Using great paper stocks can make your booklet look fantastic, and is the ideal solution when you don't have a lot of pages. Booklets need to be designed in multiples of 4 pages, because when we fold papers in half to staple, we get four pages per sheets. Sometimes we will leave inside covers or last pages blank in order to enable a booklet to be printed from an odd number of pages.
Booklets are ideal for marketing, for catalogues and for programs for various events. Of course we are all hopeful that we will be able to gather for events in the near future!
