Finishing

Photo book printing - Hardcover binding

Hardcover book has a book block which is sewn in section and then glued together. The hardcover book block is case bound with a binding board which is covered with coated paper (usually 130gsm) and then finished with lamination (matt, gloss, textured). In other cases, binding board may be covered with special binding materials, such as- leather imitation, cloth, Surbalin, Geltex. These have a variety of colours and textures, you can find some here:

Hardcover book block is joined with cover using endpapers which are glued on the cover. Endpapers can be made of coated or uncoated paper (recommended to be thicker than inside pages), colourful or printed, as well as from Surbalin. But - hardcover book can as well be made without endpapers- in this case the first and last page of the block is directly glued on the inside of the cover this way holding them together.

For the cover finishing we can suggest embossing, foil blocking, spot UV varnishing, as well as the book block decoration for the very exceptional product. Ribbon marker is an additional decoration for the hardcover as well as a very convenient marker for reading. Ribbon marker colour can be chosen of the same colour as head and tail bands, it gives a more stylish look for your book.

Hardcover books may have 2 types of spine- square or round. Square spine is more usual, round spine is only recommended when there are many pages in the book in order to form the book block properly.

Nevertheless if the hardcover book has a PLC or bound with special binding materials, they can always use a jacket- for protection, additional information or decoration if needed. Hardcover jacket is usually made of 150-170 gsm coated paper, printed and laminated. Also, all finishing types may be applied to it as for the cover itself.
