Hard Cover Book Information

Cloth

You can choose to bind your book with cloth. There are many different types including the very popular starch filled pearl linen to aqueous coated Library Buckram.

Adhesive Hard Bound Burst Folding

This method is the alternative to sewing. The book is held together using glues that penetrate the fibers of the paper and the spine.

Pre-Printed

Take your favorite image and cover your book in it! Bind your book with a pre printed image that is coated with UV or film laminate. Excellent modern look to many popular books.

3-Piece Binding

This method starts with the boards being laminated together on the spine with cloth. Once set, a new material is added to the front and back of the boards creating a much sturdier cover.

Bonded Leather

Leather is ground up and mixed with a certain percentage of paper. Once thoroughly mixed, the "paper" is turned into a sheet of material that looks like real leather.

Finishing Options

Film Lamination

Laminated sheets on one side, up to 14" x 20”– clear laminate or scuff-free

Gilding

A decorative polished foil that helps preserve books from natural oils. Foil is available in silver and gold, matte or glossy.

Speckled Edges

A fine mist creates random speckling and helps give a book a unique look. Mostly popular in the last century for dictionary and bible industries. Speckled edges can be produced in most primary colors.

Edge Staining

Edge staining offers an inexpensive alternative to edge gilding. Two types of stain are available–water-based (available in limited colors) and ink-based in just about any Pantone Matching System (PMS) color.

Singer Sewing

This method is used instead of staples to add a little more style to smaller binding jobs, such as pamphlets.

Rounded Cornered Covers

Covers and book blocks that have a 3/8” radius rounded corner on each panel.

Brass Cornered Covers

Protective metal corners that protect the book cover from wear.

That’s fantastic! You guys have really impressed me with these orders. I don’t think I’ve worked with a print shop this flexible and agile the whole time I’ve been in art production. Thanks for the hard work! I look forward to seeing the result!

Gabe, Brian,

I just want to say thank you for the amazing job you did with the postcards. They are by far the best-looking piece of campaign literature that my dad's put out since his first campaign in 2003. He's so pleased and we are both eagerly awaiting them to hit mailboxes throughout the ward.

As always, great work!

Brian, Bill and Gab, 

Just want to send you guys a quick note to thank you for the superb service you have extended to all of us at Beyond Walls over the past few weeks. I recognize that you guys put many of our orders on a rush in order to accommodate our short project timeline - thank you! Not only were all the print materials of superb quality - you guys went the extra mile with some minor design work and always delivered it with a smile. Undoubtedly the best customer service we've experienced with a print shop! Again, we are so grateful for your help, professional service and top notch product quality. We look forward to working with all of you in the future. 

----on behalf of the Beyond Walls Team, thank you!
