Split Binding

This article will teach you about split binding and help you determine if it’s the right option for you.

Split Binding Options

If you’re interested in printing two or more versions of your book you can save money by doing a split binding run instead of placing separate orders. The interior pages for every copy are printed all at once before being separated for the different bindery runs, so the inner “guts” of your book project will need to be exactly the same in every version (the hardcover version can’t have a different copyright page than the softcover, for instance). However, you can include variant covers within both bindery runs.

Not sure if this option is right for you? Feel free to give one of our friendly customer service Ninjas a call. We can tell you more specifics about doing a split binding run, and can guide you through the process of figuring out whether split binding is right for your project.
