Finishing Your Book

We hope you’re ready for a BIG FINISH, because that’s what you will get in the Worzalla Finishing Department. Sewing, stitching, perfect and notch binding, hard-cover, paperback, jackets, embellishments and enhancements – all to help your book get the attention it deserves. Worzalla has you covered — from a budget-friendly paperback product to the high end coffee table style, and everything in between.

We offer a variety of ways to put your book together. End sheets are applied to the book block prior to casing-in, and can be plain white, made from colored stock, or printed.

Smyth Sew binding chain stitches sections of your book together.

Side sew binding makes for a very durable, child friendly book and is a very popular binding style. There is a reinforcing tape added to the end sheets before sewing to make it durable. However, please pay attention to the margin requirements as a the side sew will pinch!

Perfect binding is an adhesive paperback. There is also a Perfect hard case. The Perfect hard case gets a capping to go over the adhesive before the hard case is put on.

Once you’ve chosen how to keep your book together, you can decide between the paperback, hard cover, or an alternative finish!
