InstantPublisher prides itself in offering the most customizable self publishing and book printing service around. I am going to start randomly posting about some of the different book printing options we offer, as many of our customers do not know that we offer so many different configurations in our book printing line and that many do not know what the terms even mean. This week I am going to talk about sewn perfect binding.
Sewn perfect binding looks similar to a regular perfect bound (paperback) book but the book block is actually sewn together before gluing the cover to the book block. The reason we offer this binding style is that perfect binding by itself is not suitable for long term usage because the glue hardens by alternating cold and hot weather and will eventually break and the pages will fall out. When some people read a book they will tend to try to make the book lay flat by folding the book back onto the spine. This also tends to break the glue where the book is folded and will cause the pages to fall out.
Sewn Perfect binding is recommended for books that need to last for a very long time or books with a coated stock like our gloss coated papers. Gloss coated papers do not let the glue penetrate as well as regular text stock so, with gloss coated books with more than 80 pages, we recommend that you take the sewn option. Sewn books are first glued together, sewn with thread, then they are perfect bound to hide the threads. The threads can still be seen when the book is opened wide but they are barely noticeable. The outside of the book will have a slight bulge as well where the thread is but it is not very noticeable. This is the same binding style that we use in our hardcover book binding to be sure the books last a very long time. See more on this binding style here.
All of our book binding methods, except the 3-Ring and hardback/case bindings, are what are sometimes referred to as “soft covers.” The 3-Ring Padded binding is laminated card stock with a padded core, which is formed around three metal rings, similar to a school notebook. We offer several binding options (click for more information on each binding type):
Different book binding types are suitable for different applications. Instantpublisher’s free option for our books is Perfect Binding (shown below). This binding is excellent for books, corporate reports, manuals, brochures, and annual reports. One advantage of this type of binding is that if your book has 80 pages or more, we can print the title information on the spine of the binding. Sewn perfect binding is also offered for thicker color books. Sewing the perfect bound books allows the books to last much longer and is the prefered method for larger books. (InstantPublisher – a book publishing company offers many book binding options. See binding options below.)

Many executives like to use our printing service because of the ease of printing straight from their office, the speed of our turnaround, the high quality of our finished product and the cost of our printing service.
Product Manual Printing
Many of our business customers use Instantpublisher (a prestigious book publishing company) for their product manual printing not only because of the advantages mentioned above, but because of our print on demand service that saves storage and does not tie up unnecessary funds.

Employee Handbook Printing
Companies are required to have employee handbooks printed and this poses a problem for many small companies on deciding who will do their Employee Handbook printing. Many companies opt for in house employee handbook printing and do not realize that with the labor, paper and toner costs involved with printing the handbook that they could have had it done professionally to begin with and saved time and money all without leaving the office.
Training Manual Printing
The benefits of our training manual printing are the same as above, plus we can spiral bind them for you. This is very important to many companies on their Training Manual priniting because the books will lay flat and last longer.

Advantage #1 Larger Profits- Self-publishing allows for larger profits on each book sold. If you already have networks to sell your books, self-publishing can make the publishing process more profitable compared to traditionally published books. Writers who frequently speak at conferences, for example, might benefit more from self-publishing than from using a publisher.
Advantage #2 Control- Self-publishing gives you complete control over your editorial and design. (You are in control, not the publisher). Many parts that publishers would probably want to edit or delete is combed over by you. You are in control of designing your cover and the content.
Advantage #3 On Your Time- Self-publishing allows you to set the timeline. If your book is related to current events, you can publish your book – – – using your schedule to ensure that you have printed copies on-hand when that event happens. A publishing company has its own schedule that doesn’t necessarily coincide with yours. It will likely take much longer to see your book in print compared to self-publishing.
Advantage #4 Retain Copyrights- When you self-publish, you retain all copyrights. (Let’s restate. When you self-publish, you retain all copyrights). If your printed book doesn’t sell the way you had expected, with a traditional book publisher you are halted. Your book contract likely prohibits you from use of your content in ways without the publisher being involved. As a self-publisher, you can also create ebooks, articles for your website, videos, or brochures from your book’s content without contractual repercussions.
