This is a promotional piece that we have made several hundred of. Our name appears nowhere in this book! It is meant to be a sales tool for you.
Picture #1 is the overall view of the front cover. Picture #2 shows some intricate foil stamping that we can do in any colour. In addition there is a deep deboss and black foil lining the edges. Picture #3 is a personalized name which is foil printed. We are able, without dies, to individually “print” 1000’s of different names!
Picture #4 shows metal corners. You might notice that both are different. We are showing styles because there are over 1000 different kinds of metal corners!… different colours, sizes, finishes, shapes…! Picture # 5 shows the “end paper”. Years ago, almost all endpapers were white. We are now seeing the majority to be coloured or printed etc. Picture #6 show “step-cutting and “face cutting”, that we complete AFTER the book is bound!
Picture # 7 shows “patterned” foil gilding which we produced with standard foil. Picture # 8 shows die-cutting through the front cover. Picture #9 shows die-cutting for a pen holder.
Picture # 10 shows ribbons that we print inhouse. Ribbons come in 100’s of colours, widths and textures. Picture #11 shows a large hole that we “drilled” through all the pages. Every time the reader turns a page, they see the same message printed on the inside back cover. Picture #12 show smyth thread sewing which is very standard in the book binding world, but……these threads are coloured!
Picture #13 shows one of 100’s of different styles of elastics. Picture #14 shows book staining. We have the ability to apply two different colours and have the colours meet at a sharp corner. Picture #15 shows a coloured cloth strip, which is called a “headband”. They come in 100’s of colours, some in two or three colours.
