How to Achieve a Better Book Cover

Once your latest book has been finished, you want to be sure that the book covers lasts.

Once your latest book has been finished, you want to be sure that the book covers lasts. There are three common types of book cover coating you can choose to make your cover look even more attractive. Here is how you can achieve a better-looking book cover.

Use Aqueous Coating

One way to achieve a better cook cover is to use an aqueous coating. The essential element of an aqueous coating is water, and this water is combined with ink. the most significant benefits of using an aqueous coating to improve your book cover are how quickly it dries off and how little it impacts the environment. If you are searching for an eco-friendly way to enhance the appearance of your book, then this could be the solution you need. After all, it is both affordable and durable, although it is not as durable as UV coating.

Consider UV Coating

UV coating, or ultraviolet coating, begins as a liquid. The liquid is then treated with UV rays to accelerate the rate of drying so it can be added to the book cover. This coating is rather more versatile than its water-based counterpart. For instance, you could choose to have UV coating applied to the cover, or only used in some spots. The beautiful book covers you see on the shelves in bookstores and libraries are most likely due to UV coating. These covers are meant to draw the attention of a potential reader, especially if it is a special edition of a classic book or a reissue to coincide with the latest box office sensation at the movie theater.

Try Laminate Coating

A third option to consider is laminate coating. Laminating a book cover protects it even more thoroughly than the other two methods because the cover is encased in a layer of plastic. Textbooks, cookbooks, and presentation portfolios are three of the products that you will see most frequently covered with laminate coating. Laminated book covers are the most resilient, and are stronger than the other types of book covers. If you would like to know more, then don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today!
