Trade Die Cutting for Book Covers!
Trade die cutting isn’t just for tags, packaging, folders, stickers, etc. It also makes a great addition to books – for soft cover books, exposed chipboard covers and interior pages!
Die Cutting a book cover turns a simple piece into a work of art. A windowed book cover allows the reader to see inside a section of the cover. We can cut a decorative shape relevant to the book’s topic or product being promoted – the choice is yours.
The book I’m featuring this week has a die cut windowed cover that is also case wrapped! First, the chipboard cover material has a window die cut. Then, the cover was mounted to the fabric, with special care taken to wrap the inside of each of the window sides.
The image above shows how the inside cover liner hides the fabric edges that have been folded over the die cut window edges.
