Head and Tail Bands, seen here in yellow.
Head and tail bands are the little pieces of colored twine found on the top and bottom of the spine of hard case, hardcover books. They come in many colors at Star Print Brokers. Head and tail bands can have two colors on one band, or a solid color. The photo above shows a solid yellow band. This book can also have yellow and grey head and tail bands. It can appear like dots across the top band. See a sample of a color chart.

Head and tail bands are strictly for ornamentation, but found on most professionally hardcover books with quality printing and binding. They are in our costs for all the books we quote. Removing the H & T bands from the quote will hardly change the cost at all.
Head and tail bands, and more options
Self-publishers might want a sewn-in ribbon marker for their book. If so, we have many choices for matching head and tail bands. The ribbon markers come in different widths. This is one of the reasons why we don’t have a price list. Everything we do is custom. Self-publishers have so many options with Star Print Brokers. We always manufacture quality books with many available options not found with print-on-demand services.
In conclusion, let us print and bind books that you will be proud to sell. Poorly bound or badly constructed books often have to be discounted in price. What good is it to print 2,000 books when only 1,000 are in condition to sell? We stand behind our books, so clients of Star Print Brokers will not have this concern. We have been in business since 1999, and have many references and testimonials.
