Quarterbinding: A Touch of Elegance and Durability
What is Quarterbinding?
Quarterbinding is a traditional bookbinding method that involves covering the spine and corners of the book with a different material than the rest of the cover.

Understanding Different Types of Invoice Books
The Difference Between Duplicate, Triplicate, and Quadruplicate Books
- Duplicate Books: These consist of two sheets per set – the original and one copy fixed into the book.
- Triplicate Books: These have three sheets per set, allowing for two copies of each invoice.
- Quadruplicate Books: These provide three copies, totalling four sheets per set.
Each type serves different business needs, with MVP Print offering customization options for each. Most Invoice Book Printing is single-sided, but if required terms and conditions printing can be added to the reverse side.
