Book Printing


Printing your own book can be a little daunting. With so many book styles to choose from, it can be hard to decide which format will best suit your end goals for publishing in the first place. We believe that Paradigm are the book printing specialists. We can guide you through to a result that you are not only happy with, but will differentiate your project in the market place in a way that distinctively reflects the nature of your product. Whether it's a a small run of boutiqe books printed with specialist manufacturers in Australia or a more substantial project printed offshore, we have the expert knowledge and experience to make sure the job is done right.

Soft Cover Books

Soft Cover books are the simplest and most economical option for book printing.  They typically have a "perfect" binding finish.  This is where the internal pages are heat glued along the spine edge of the pages and the cover is clamped and pressed around them.  Once the glue has cooled the other 3 edges are trimmed for a neat clean finish. Soft cover books include.

  • Cooking Books
  • Novels
  • Product Catalogues
  • Directory Books
  • Poetry Books

Hard Cover Books (case bound)

Hard Cover books are the best choice when a more robust result is required.  They typically have a "section sewn" binding finish.  This is where the internal pages are printed in 16 page sections and then folded down and sewn and trimmed before binding. Heat glue is then applied along the roughened folded sewn edges of the pages and the hard cover (created seperately) is attached by glueing endpapers to join the two parts. Hard cover books include:

  • Historical Books
  • Childrens Books
  • Photography Books
  • Coffee Table Books
