There are two parts to a hardcover book: the outer cover and the book block, or interior pages.
The covers are printed on thin sheets, which are then laminated, and then meticulously cut, glued, and folded onto a board. The board is both dense and thick to give you a high-quality, long-lasting book.
The book blocks are bound with PUR glue to give you an extremely durable bind. After the covers and book blocks have been created, the two are married together to produce your final printed book.
Hardcover books are used for self-published books, yearbooks, photobooks, design portfolios and much more.
