Hardcover Books – CD, DVD, Vinyl

Hardcover Books – CD, DVD, Vinyl

Hardcover Books are like deluxe coffee table books but made to hold media.

  • Hardcover Books (also called hardbound) books, use the same construction as text books or deluxe coffee table books. The construction technique of using a rigid core material and apply a wrap is called book binding. The core chipboard material inside makes them rigid.
  • The outside wrapping of the book is traditionally with a full color printed wrap that is laminated in place, but can also be a linen or leather type of wrap.  Outside wraps can be:
    • 4C Printed Wrap applied with Matte or Gloss Lamination
    • Linen Fabric Wrap
    • Fabric Paper Wrap
    • Man-made Leather Wrap
  • An inside wrap is also glued across the inside of the book, which can be printed or a solid material.
    Inside wrap options:

    • Printed 4C
    • Kraft Paper, Black or Tan

Any Size – CD DVD Vinyl Book Dimensions

We can make cd dvd books any size, but clients typically choose a common size relating to the type of media. The only restrictions on size, are if you want a prefabricated disc tray (clear or paper) to hold the disc. There are many other ways to hold discs though – see further below.

  • CD Books are 5×5″ish
  • DVD Books also called DigiBooks, usually 5×7″ or 7×5″ish
  • Vinyl Books are 12×12″ish
  • Custom sizes are not uncommon, StoryBook size is often 6×8″.

Inner Pages in CD DVD or Vinyl Books

Hardcover books have pages which are long sheets of paper folder in half. Each printed panel can be numbered. Thinner booklets can be attached to the wrap at the inside spine. Thicker booklets need to be glued to an inside panel due to the weight, otherwise they will pull at the wrap too much.

  • Booklets 4pp – 28pp
  • Perfect Bound Books 28pp+
  • Fly Sheets also available

Media can be held with trays, sleeves, pockets, or hubs.

Media can be held in a variety of ways.

  • Paper Trays – 100% Recycled Paper with Cork Hub, available 5″ size.
  • Foam Trays – custom made for any size, great for vinyl records.

  • Glued on Sleeves – sleeves made of kraft paper, solid color material, or printed 4C, applied to inside panel
