How is a hardcover book different?

When you need something a little bit more substantial than your typical paperback, consider upgrading to hardcover! Our hardcover books are bound using strong PUR glue -- and with the heavier covers, these durable books will be around for you to enjoy for many years to come. This binding type is great for family history books, directories, yearbooks, photo/art books or special limited editions of existing paperbacks.

What options should I choose for my hardcover book?

We have many different material types and specialty options available to make your hardcover book project truly stand out from the crowd. You can choose to design your ideal printed cover that is coated in one of our laminates (gloss or silk/matte finish). Or opt for our leather or cloth wrapped covers for a elevated look and feel. We even offer dust jackets!

With so many options to chose from, we know it may be overwhelming. That is why our customer service staff is always available during business hours to answer any questions you may have, even before you place a order! We are committed to working with you to make your hardcover book dream's a reality!
