The French flap book or Gatefold book options.
A flap book or gatefold book is not typically available at on-demand services. It is hard to find because on-demand does not set-up to bind with flaps. Furthermore, most printers don’t offer it, but we do. We print French flap books with front cover and /or back cover flap. Does your printer?
In fact, we offer a ton of hard-to-find options to make your book unique. The cover of a book can be extended, sort of like the flaps on a dust jacket. Just as on a dust jacket that may have “about the author” on a flap — and perhaps a synopsis — the flaps on a soft cover book can be designed with additional information.
We print the French flap book, gatefold book. Does your printer?
A flap book by any other name
What we term French flap soft cover books, self-publishers also call a flap book or a gatefold book. They all mean the same thing. Also see a semi-concealed softcover Wire O with French flaps.
Functional uses in a gatefold book
In addition to adding information on a flap book or a gatefold book, you can also make the flap(s) especially wide so that they can hold the reader’s place in a book.
If you have a very thick book, we can score the flap so it can bend as the reader folds it into the beginning, middle or back of the book.
