Rounded Edges

American Print & Bindery offers the option of rounded edges for your print project, adding a touch of elegance and practicality to your literary works. This finishing technique involves trimming the sharp corners of paper or cardstock, creating smooth, rounded edges that elevate the visual appeal while providing additional safety benefits.

How Does it Work?

This process is accomplished using specialized cutting equipment that precisely rounds off the corners to a specified radius, resulting in a polished, refined appearance. 

What are the Benefits?

  • Aesthetic Appeal: Enjoy a contemporary look that elevates the overall appearance. The softened corners create a visually appealing and distinctive look, adding a refined touch that captivates readers' attention and enhances the tactile experience.
  • Enhanced Reader Comfort and Safety: Rounded edges prioritize reader comfort and safety. By eliminating sharp corners, they become easier and more comfortable to hold. Additionally, rounded edges reduce the risk of accidental paper cuts.
  • Increased Durability: This finishing technique adds to the durability of books. They help prevent corners from fraying or becoming dog-eared, thereby preserving the condition of your books even after frequent handling.
  • Customized Precision: At American Print & Bindery, we offer customization options to tailor the radius and style of rounded edges to suit your specific book printing needs. This ensures that your books stand out with a distinct and personalized touch.
