Form – Perfect Binding

This form is for perfect binding. If you are trying to print on IC media and then bind with a plastic coil or wire, you will fill out the laser printing form which can be found HERE

Turnaround Times: The standard turnaround time for the entire perfect binding process is 8 business days, not including weekends. The IC can have a proof copy ready in three (3) days, and the finished book(s) (5) five days after the proof is approved. This does not include weekends. 

If you do not want a proof copy, your final book(s) will still take 5 business days. 

We highly recommend getting a proof copy of your book. Proof copies are printed on the papers that you have selected at the sizes you submit. If you are supplying your own media, make sure to supply the IC enough paper for the proof & final copies. Proofs are 1/2 price if you approve the order. If you decide to cancel the order, the proof copy will remain at full price. Proofs are labeled with a sticker on the inside cover. 

The perfect binding process at the Imaging Center is done all by hand and takes a considerable amount of production time which pulls trained staff & management away from their other duties. For this reason, the IC does reserve the right to deny certain amounts of perfect binding requests. We may recommend other options for booklet binding (saddle-stitch or wire/plastic coil)

More Information: For further information on file set up and Imaging Center policies and procedures, please review The Imaging Center Main Guide. For more information on preparing your file(s) for perfect binding, please click HERE.
