How to Enhance Your Book Binding Project
Die cutting is a technique that involves cutting windows in the dust jacket and/or in the pages of the book themselves. Many books use dust jacket die cutting as a way to expose some of the binding while still using a dust jacket. Less book projects have a need for die cutting of the actual pages, though more artistic projects, especially those involving photography or artwork, can make use of some creative designs to really take advantage of this book binding technique.
It’s rare that a hardbound book come without a dust jacket these days, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of opportunities to be creative with one. In addition to their form, dust jackets perform the vital function of protecting a book’s binding, which is especially important if you have custom work done. A reinforced French-fold dust jacket can even protect the edges of your book from fraying.
Custom handwork distinguishes your book in a way that nothing else can match. Custom handwork gives a book a distinctly personal feel that makes it highly desirable. Consider a limited edition run of your next book with custom handwork.
Foil stamping is a technique that uses a heat transfer to emboss a foil stamp onto a book’s binding. The stamp is elevated slightly off the surface of the binding, and definitely brings a classy look to your book.
For those special editions, custom cases are a necessity. Custom cases offer a completely new medium to work with and complement a custom bound book.
