Hardcover Book Printing

At Book1One, we use the highest quality materials in our hardcover book printing process. 

The covers on our hardcover books are made with 98 pt. binder's board that can then be covered with either a printed cover wrap, cloth or faux (imitation) leather material.

With this binding method, the text pages are first glued together at the spine to create a "text block." End leaves that hold the text block to the inside of the cover casing are applied to the binding edge of the text block. The cover is created separately and then glued to the end leaves and text block, creating a book that will last for years.

Available in any sizes:

Hardcover book binding is available in any of these book sizes or in-between sizes in either portrait, landscape, or square orientation.

Cloth and Faux Leather Color Choices:

Black Cloth and Faux Leather Book CoversBlack
Navy Blue Cloth and Faux Leather Book CoversNavy Blue
Dark Red Cloth and Faux Leather Book CoversDark Red
Green Cloth and Faux Leather Book CoversGreen

Plastic Coil Book Printing

Plastic coil binding provides a unique advantage over other book binding styles.

Plastic coil binding offers the advantage of enabling your book’s pages to lie flat – something that is ideal if your text encourages note-taking.

At Book1One, you will find our plastic coil is both durable and scratch resistant. You’ll never have a concern about pages coming loose – even after repeated use.

Plastic coil binding is an ideal book binding style for a number of different types of books. Examples include cookbooks; technical and instructional books; workbooks and manuals; children’s books; and gardening, hobby, and crafts books.

Available in any sizes:

Plastic coil book binding is available in any of these book sizes or in-between sizes in either portrait, landscape, or square orientation.

Softcover Book Printing

Book1One’s softcover book binding - a professional and economical book binding method.

Book1One's softcover book binding, also called perfect binding, is a popular choice with book creators. With softcover book binding, adhesive is applied to the spine side of the pages, and the cover (comprised of 100# cover stock with film lamination) is then wrapped around the pages. After the adhesive is cured, the book is trimmed on three sides, leaving you with an attractive, functional soft cover book.

Available in any sizes:

Softcover book binding is available in any of these book sizes or in-between sizes in either portrait, landscape, or square orientation.

I am a designer who has ordered several low-volume books for my clients from Book1One over the last few years and have been extremely pleased with the quality as well as the customer service. I have created both hard cover and soft cover books, and the website has useful templates for formatting the book layout so everything comes together seamlessly. I also love the instant quote generator on the website, it helps to see how the different options impact the pricing without having to go back and forth with an estimator or sales rep. I will definitely keep using Book1One!
