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.

Important note! When considering a split-binding run, it’s also important to remember that your casebound book will require endsheets, regardless of page count. Endsheets are normally only included with casebound books over 60 pages, but with split binding, the interior bookplate used for printing needs to be identical.

You can find more information about endsheets and how they work here.
