Some case bound books (the same books can be called hard back bound books, or cased-in books) have a distinctive which is simply a die-cut cover. A circular die shape can be multiple positions or skinny shaped multiple die shaped. The die-cutting can go through even thicker book covers which is 120pt board. Most hardback books are 80pt or 100pt board. Even if its 120pt we could die-cut the cover. With a die-cut cover, when you look at the die-cut portion you can see the edge of the board. Under certain circumstances we can die-cut the cover wrap such as cloth, so that it wraps around the board which is cut on the edge of the die-cut portion. Most often books that are hard back book bound or casebound have a blank endpaper. When you open-up a casebound book, 99.9% of all hard back or casebound books, the inside case cover is laminated with or mounted blank paper. The “endpaper” if it is printed however, when the hardback book cover is die-cut the endpaper must print on the inside pages of 2 and 3. When a consumer looks at the die-cut cover they see the printing on the inside of the cover which is the “endpaper.” From our experience die-cutting covers for hardback casebound books are becoming more frequent. I believe the process makes the hardback cased in books look more distinctive and books with a die-cut cover request are more frequent.
