This month we have prepared a brief video overview of clear covers and frosted/matte coversused for booklet binding. The video clip below offers a brief description, close-up views of the textures, and the thickness/rigidity/durability of each cover. As an added bonus we have obtained ‘top secret’ footage from the CFS Test Labs showing highly scientific testing methods to evaluate each covers characteristics.
The items listed in this video include:
5 mil Light Clear Covers
7 mil Medium Clear Covers
10 mil Heavy Clear Covers
10 mil Smooth Matte Covers
10 mil Suede/Sand Textured Covers
12 mil Sand Textured Polypropylene Covers
15 mil Smooth Frosted Polypropylene Covers
23 mil Heavyweight Smooth Frosted Polypropylene Covers
Available in a variety of sizes starting at 8.5” x 11” – up to 11” x 17” ledger size, these are all popular choices as front covers for booklet binding, often paired with a composition vinyl back cover.
