Processing

With Perma-Bound, getting the books you need goes hand-in-hand with meeting your processing needs.

Long before any books are processed and shipped, your Perma-Bound representative will help you make your processing selections and develop specifications. This way, you can shelve your books the day they arrive.

We can customize our processing to meet the requirements of your school, and will even send sample books produced with your processing specifications so you can see what you will be receiving.

Perma-Bound's processing works with any circulation system. You don't have to worry about being restricted to a single source for your book purchasing.

Need a circulation system? Perma-Bound partners with other providers to bring you complete circulation system packages. Your Perma-Bound representative can tell you about our flexible and cost-effective circulation solutions.

Ordering
