Perfect binding

You can perfect bind printed pages. (A perfect binding unit must be installed on the printer.)

Perfect binding is a binding process in which pages are inserted into a cover and glued into place.

Illustration of perfect binding


  • To perform perfect binding, [Paper orientation] and [Open orientation] must be configured in one of the following ways on the [Imposition/Paper Type Settings] screen:

    • If [Paper orientation] is [Portrait], [Open orientation] must be either [Open to left] or [Open to right].

    • If [Paper orientation] is [Landscape], [Open orientation] must be [Open to top].

These settings are specified on the [Paper/Imposition/Finishing] screen.

Note that this explanation outlines the finishing settings. For details about a specific setting, see the on-screen balloon help that appears when you click the Icon illustration button.


  • For details about compatible paper sizes and thicknesses etc., see the documentation of your printer and the glue binding unit.
