We often use cloth for book binding. Such as custom the cover of hardcover book.

4. Paint coating cover

It is a substitute for leather cover. We often use it as the cover of ordinary hardcover books, certificates. This material is polluting and has been used less in recent years.

We divide plastics into soft and hard. I use soft plastic for the cover of notebook and hardcover cover of student books. We used very little hard plastic, we often use it for the cover of the notebook.

In recent years, film-covered covers have been widely used. In paperback book printing, over 60% of them use film-covered covers. The proportion of paper-covered covers in custom hardcover books is also increasing.

Generally, the PVC coated cover and we bond the cardboard to form a hardcover book cover. Or directly adhered to the booklet to become a soft-faced hardcover book).

10. Resin glue composite fabric and paper

We can print this cover material in four colors on one side of the fabric and can get excellent results. It is a more high-end hardcover cover material.

11. PVC frosted cover

This kind of material can be fake and real, and after processing, it is like the effect of real leather. We can use it as the cover of hardcover books printing.
