Hardcover books offer many advantages over other types of binding, but two stand out above all else – quality and durability. Hardcover books are built to last. Whether they sit on the bookshelf unread for long periods or receive constant use, they are made to withstand the test of time.

Hardcover binding also stands out from all other binding options in its ability to give books their own unique look and feel. This is made possible by offering many unique finishing options not available with other types of binding.

From fiction to biographies, self-published books, and everything in between, finishing your book with a hardcover gives it a distinguished look while helping protect it for years to come.
