Perfect Binding Vs PUR Binding – Whats The Difference?

This is a very common question that we get asked by customers both new and old particularly regarding larger pagination jobs such as catalogues. Both methods are well suited to producing high quality magazines, catalogues or brochures. PUR and Perfect binding each have their own strengths and weaknesses which make them more effective and efficient at different specifications. It is really worthwhile asking about both options as you could save money on your print bill by selecting the best method for your printed project.
