Bound To Be Impressive!
Have you ever really looked at the types of bindings you find on a library or book store shelf? There are so many options these days it can make you head spin. To make choosing the binding for a book easier, we suggest carefully evaluating what you want out of a book cover before even seeking quotations. Regardless of prices, durability, options, and jargon, the current project should begin with a wish list that can be tailored using other factors (budget, sales price, durability, custom suggestions, etc.). Below are helpful defining points that should assist in your cover type decision.
All cover services are available as part of a complete publishing package, POD (small quantity charges may apply), and binding only. While we offer other binding options, the ones below are most common for the economical minded:
Book design can extend into what type of cover you are looking for. Sometimes, it's a good idea to start a your cost, while other times, it is better to start with your needs concerning durability. We encourage you to visit all the information pages above that look like they might fit your goals. If you are having trouble deciding, please note we'd be happy to discuss your options with you at any time.
Too many choices to decide on cover design? Consider choosing a color (scheme - cover, text, endpapers, etc.) that matches a favorite color, allow the publisher to select something, or take the color (scheme) from family crest or tartan.
One of many ways to make your book unique is considering a slightly "off size". Many people are familiar with 6x9" and 8.5x11". However, lesser used sizes, like 7x10", or even 8x10" or 5.5x8.5" allow your book to stand out on a shelf without presenting storage problems.
Perfect if producing POD, consider personalizing each book's cover. This can be done with a simple name, different backgrounds or photos, graphic and fonts. The cost differences depend on type of cover which may also make total quantity ordered a factor.
