Planing a Specialty Cover

Specialty covers – such as a cased-in hard cover, concealed softcover or oversized cover for a display product – can improve a book’s functionality, appearance and value to end users. To be sure production goes smoothly, keep these planning tips in mind:

Use a Sample as Guidance – A pre-production sample is a great tool for planning your specialty cover projects. Your sample should resemble the finished product as closely as possible, so be sure to supply us with all stocks you will be using if possible. At Finish Line Binderies, we can regularly produce samples for our customers as a way of facilitating the planning process and ensuring that all potential problems are addressed prior to production.

Ask Us for Layout Help – Layouts for specialty covers, particularly semi- or fully-concealed covers, can be tricky. Score placement is crucial to creating a cover that fits properly around the binding elements. The mechanical binding team at Finish Line Binderies is more than happy to provide you with a custom-designed layout for your specialty cover.
