Board Covers for Hardcover Planners and Books

by Vervante •

If you're looking for a budget-friendly, durable and attractive alternative for hardcover books or planners, board covers might be the answer for you. A popular (and affordable) cover we have been offering is a 2-ply. We are now also offering a 3-ply and 4-ply option. To produce these covers, we use our standard 12 pt C1S cover stock, the same cover used for a paperback book. We litho laminate (glue) two pieces together, three piece or four pieces of cover weight stock together to create a great option to a traditional hardcover.

Advantages of board covers

  • Depending on the size of the cover, board covers cost about 50% less than hardcovers
  • The turnaround time is at least two weeks less than hardcovers
  • We can wire-o bind or spiral bind (metal or plastic) board covers
  • Board covers can be printed 2-sided

So, if you’re working on a product that you’d like to have ready sooner than it would take using a traditional hard cover, a board cover might just be the solution for you.
