Finishing Your Book

We hope you’re ready for a BIG FINISH, because that’s what you will get in the Worzalla Finishing Department. Sewing, stitching, perfect and notch binding, hard-cover, paperback, jackets, embellishments and enhancements – all to help your book get the attention it deserves. Worzalla has you covered – from a budget-friendly paperback product to the high end coffee table style, and everything in between.


We offer a variety of ways to put your book together. End sheets are applied to the book block prior to casing-in, and can be plain white, made from colored stock, or printed.
