Expand beyond the limits of foil!
Authors enjoy these binding benefits:
Tailored for marketing in a "full color world".
Free spine and back imprint - full outside color wrap.
High End Appearance let your imagination be your guide on a colorful journey.
Choose how much or how little color you use.
Choose slick gloss lamination or linen texture lamination for no up-charge.
Header and footer bands for books with 1/2" or larger - economic upgrade.
Rounded rather than square back books with spines of 1/2" or more - economic upgrade
Gregath basic color printed hard covers carry a clear lamination for eye-catching appeal and long-lasting durability. From bold graphics, one of a kind text and colorful photos to Coats-of-Arms – this is a great way to add color and interest to your hard cover presentation! Additionally, from a marketing standpoint, many bookstores will not stock books on their shelves, unless they have a full color cover. This is also a great way of tying books in a (family) series together but yet make them almost completely different as well. With the 4-color cover you have the front, back, and spine you can design and add different elements into that are all included in the binding charge, rather than a specific, set size in foil on front OR back, as with deluxe covers.
This full color process is a cost effective hard binding alternative to the dust jacket. Note, however, full color hard covers do not include flap or end sheet imprint/printing in standard pricing. Special end sheets that include printing can be ordered, but the most economical are natural tone, blank end sheets. All books are guaranteed for quality of workmanship and materials.
Books, as part of an ongoing series, can be recognizably part of a series - without being exactly the same bindings. Each book has it's own "soul" - celebrate it.
Perfect for books up to 2" thick or slightly larger. Standard offerings are based on the project size. Contact us if you wish a particular service, or selection.
Standard color binding methods based on your actual book size:
Side-sewn - square backed due to size
Oversewn - more archival but less economical
Double-Fan Adhesive - LBI certified for books up to 2-7/8" thick
Please note that, though LBI standards do not endorse color lamination, this product meets or exceeds as many standards for quality, durable binding as we could find.
All cover services are available as part of a complete publishing package and POD (small quantity charges may apply), as well as binding or graphic design only.
Note: All full color bound publications shown on this page were printed and/or published by Gregath Company, Inc. Not all books are available for purchase through this publisher.
