Custom Books are made unique with these Manufacturing Options.
Custom books do not just happen. There are unique features that make your book that much more appealing to buyers. Have you noticed all our custom options? You can find the primary Custom Options under “Examples” on the main menu of every page or post. Then, see the most common features that you can add.
Check out this list of links to portfolio images to see options for custom books.
Options for Custom Books
French flaps are something else entirely. They are an extension of one or both covers, and printed for soft cover or paperback books. They cannot be found at an print on-demand service that we are aware of.
Foil stamping or blind stamping is another option. We have many colors of foils to choose from, including actual color plus metallic choices. They usually come in gloss or matte. Blind stamping is the area depressed so a foil can be added. But, blind means without foil. But, here is something else that is extra special. You can have the typeface on the spine that is used for the cover stamp. Print on-demand services restrict self-publishers to block letters, and not of their choosing.
A book slip case is a case that holds a book or series of books.
A book sleeve can wrap around the entire book or be slightly smaller than the book.
Try a book belly band for a narrower band. Let’s get creative folks. We love working with creative people!
And the list goes on …
On to journals with elastic bands. The covering material can be printed cloth or a faux cloth or leather, and the elastic bands also come in colors.
Want a tip-on full color image positioned on the cover? Yes, we can do it. Talk about custom options!
Head and tail bands are also something that every hardcover book should have. They are no longer structural, but are so inexpensive, we automatically add them to quotes for hardcover books. You have many options here too. You are not limited to just three or four options. As we say all the time; we manufacture custom books.
Ribbon markers are sewn-in bookmarks for hardcover books. They also come in different widths, colors, and a couple different materials. You can even match them to your head and tail bands!
Package your book with all the options in a bumper box. It can be made to coordinate with your book. We worked with an ad agency who printed the outside of the box to match the endpapers. Now, that makes for unique, custom books!
We can manufacture nearly anything that you see elsewhere, plus offer more options!
In conclusion, be sure to ask if you don’t see it what you want. After all, that is what we do – custom books. And that means integrating custom options that are hard to find elsewhere. In fact, most of these options are not found at print on-demand services either.
