Covers

Materials, Finishing and Design

Global Datebooks offers a variety of high-quality cover materials and beautiful finishing options, as well as cover design service.

Materials

15 PT.

Made of thick, coated, cover-weight paper, our 15 PT. cover is our most popular option and can be finished with any of the finishing options noted below.

Poly Cover

Poly is the most durable cover material Global Datebooks offers. Since it is plastic, it will never tear. The drawback to such extreme durability is the print quality is usually not as sharp as coated paper covers, and it can not use any of the finishing options.

Frosted Poly Cover - Non-Printed

Our frosted poly covers are translucent, allowing you to add a thinner secondary cover with brilliant printing underneath

Finishing

Plastic Film Lamination - Available in Gloss or Matte Finish

Lamination provides a thick, smooth protective layer that is scratch and moisture resistant. The gloss finish gives the cover a bright and shiny look, while the matte finish is softer and understated.

Gloss UV Coating

UV coating is perfect for those who need fantastic printing clarity with high gloss. Although not as thick as our poly lamination, UV is much more flexible.

Spot Gloss UV Coating

Same as the above gloss UV coating, but it is only applied to certain areas of your cover. When used in conjunction with matte film lamination, spot gloss UV can be applied to text, pictures, or your school's logo to really make them pop!

Metallic Foil Stamping

If you're looking for a more unique way to add life to your cover, metallic foil is a great option. Similar to spot gloss UV coating, foil can be applied to text, graphics, or your school's logo, and it is available in many colors.

Cover Design

Send us your own cover design or request that one of our excellent in-house designers will create a complimentary cover.
