Economical, durable alternative to traditional dust jackets!
Also available in fabric finishes.
Is your book a handy size? One that has the reader in mind, and thus, is not several hundred pages long? This binding option combines Library Binding Institute recognized durability as a lower cost alternative to Library Oversewing in books of small page count.
This full color process is a cost effective hard binding alternative to the dust jacket and tailored to your book. Note, however, full color hard covers do not include flap or end sheet imprint/printing in standard pricing. Special printed end sheets can be ordered, but the most economical are natural blank end sheets. All books are guaranteed for quality of workmanship and materials.
Currently, our standard color hard cover offering on our quotation sheets for a maximum 5/16" spine (just under 200 pages), very economical machine side sewn, with a hard "square" spine. If you prefer an alternative, contact us for custom other economical options to fit your needs.

Side Sewing: Method of attaching signatures or individual pages together by sewing the entire text block, along the binding margin, in a single pass by machine. Meets library binding standard: ANSI/NISO/LIB Z39.78
To meet accepted standards, side sewn books must not be more than 3/8 inch thick and have less than 3/4" gutter (interior) margin. Less binding margin will lead to broken spines as the readers seek the knowledge on the interior of the pages. Side stitching employs a lock stitch.
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.
