Pages falling apart
Book Printing

I noticed the wrapping too, but the binding’s not to do with that. The binding problem is due to the glue they used, which is not flexible and cracks when you open the book. I took the books to a professional binder and saw the problem straight away.

They did replace the order, with more defective books. a couple of months later they told me the problem was solved, I ordered 6 more books and the same thisng happened: pages fall apart.

Pages falling apart

in my case it has been 3 orders, about 10 books, all totally bad. Now they give me the option of getting the books checked out by customer service before shipping them to me, which doesn’t guarantee more faulty books in the future or getting the books made by a different printing partner, which doesn’t guarantee color and paper quality which I liked so far.

So, no real long term solution here. The big problem is that all the layout work has been done with booksmart and can’t be exported to other formats, so if I find a good binding company I´ll have to do all the work again…
