Completing our video overview of covers for booklet binding, the latest video shows the composition vinyl, linen and embossed covers for booklet or report binding. You won’t want to miss this one since, just as in our Clear Covers/Matte Frosted Covers video, this video contains top-secret, classified footage of the mysterious CFS Test Labs putting the covers through rigorous testing and evaluation exercises.

Composition/Vinyl Covers are by far the most popular choice among CFS customers, often used as a back cover and paired with a clear front cover, these offer exceptional durability and protection while creating a very classy, professional presentation. Measuring 17 points thick, they are about 2 to 3 times thicker than a business card and are made up a matte paper/card stock base with a semi-glossy vinyl veneer on top. The texture resembles a stippled or pin-pricked yet smooth finish and they are available in 8 colors.
Linen Covers are a paper or card stock-based cover that feature a cross-hatched, linen or cloth-like texture pressed into the sheets. Their thickness measures in at an 80 pound card stock – much like a thinner business card paper. I like to tell people that the texture looks like a close-up on piece of cloth with threads running perpendicular to each other. Linen covers are available in 5 colors.
Embossed Covers are made of nearly the same 80# card stock as the linen covers however their texture resembles an old leather look with deep, random grain lines pressed into the front. I often tell people that the grain resembles eroded rivers running across the sheet’s surface Embossed covers are available in 7 fashionable colors.
