What are PUR bindings you ask? PUR bindings, a binding method we’re moving toward throughout our print network, use polyurethane reactive glues and offer great longevity and a “lay-flat” ability for your books. For the full scoop on PUR bindings and what great promise they hold for your Blurb books, read this blog post by our resident print expert, Bruce Watermann.

  1. Sounds like good news. What’s the time frame for the PUR bindings and lay-flat availability?

  2. Hi Jed,
    We are working on it and will announce the PUR binding as soon as we have it up and running throughout our print network.

  3. Hi Jed,
    Just wanted to get back to you with an update. We expect to have PUR bindings on all Blurb books within the next few months. Also, I want to clarify that while books with PUR bindings lay flat more readily, they are not technically lay-flat books.

  4. Hi,

    Just looking for an update on this. I produced my first Blurb book in July last year. I loved the quality but unfortunately it doesn’t lay flat or anywhere near flat in small square format. I have posted about this on the forum but to no avail. Could anyone please tell me if the PUR binding is now in place and available to me in the UK? I want to produce an improved version of my book (possible in a larger format) that will hopefully lay flat (or within reason as flat as possible).

    Any help/advice appreciated.

  5. Hey Paul,

    Yes, we are using PUR bindings now in the UK. However, while that binding does help books to open up a bit more naturally, it’s not completely “lie flat.” We do know this is something people want and it’s something we’re looking into.
