End Papers

Welcome to Our World of Creative Endpapers at Specialties Graphic Finishers

At Specialties Graphic Finishers, we believe in turning every page into a canvas of creativity. Beyond the cover of a hardback case bound book lies a world of possibilities, and we’re here to redefine your expectations of endpapers.

Unveiling the Diversity of Endpapers

1. Solid Elegance

When you open a hardcover book, what meets your eyes is often solid, unprinted, white paper. This unassuming canvas is what we call an endpaper. However, what might seem ordinary holds the potential for extraordinary design. The trend of using a pretty solid color for endpapers is on the rise. Imagine lifting the cover to reveal a splash of orange, a hue distinct from the book’s color. It’s a subtle yet impactful way to add sophistication to your book.

2. Color Coordination

Explore the art of coordination by mirroring the endpaper’s color with the book wrap. If your book cover is a vibrant green, why not carry that color seamlessly onto the endpaper? This option provides a cohesive and visually pleasing experience for the reader, making each page turn a delightful journey.

3. Printed Patterns and Designs

Step into the realm of creativity by opting for printed patterns or designs on the endpaper. Break away from the monotony with intricate patterns or compelling visuals. The beauty of this option is that it allows you to diverge from the book cover’s design, introducing an element of surprise when the cover is lifted.

4. Die-Cut Designs

For books designed with die-cut covers, the endpaper becomes a key element. Without a printed endpaper, a die-cut cover would reveal a white void. Avoid the mundane and seize the opportunity to imprint a unique pattern, logo, or statement on the endpaper. It transforms a mere hole in the hardback cover into a captivating glimpse into the printed world within.

Donna Hay

This book is distinctive for an unbelievable, six different reasons.

First, you rarely see a book with two ribbons, much less two different coloured ribbons and noticed the ribbons are different lengths. 

Second, 14 different colours of foil on the cover; incredibly distinctive. 

Thirdly, the endpaper is a solid brown rather than black or white. 

Fourth, the elastic ribbon.  It’s attached on the outside back cover, but rather on the inside of the back cover. 

Fifth, a gusset folder that is full surfaced glue to the inside back cover. 

Sixth, an added saddle stitched book has been inserted to the gusset pocket.

End Paper

This book as you can see from the green covers distinctive, and that there is a brown wrapped material around the back spine in front for 2 inches which overlaps the green cloth.  It is stamped shiny gold on the spine. Secondly, there’s a book jacket.  Thirdly there’s a printed endpaper, but fourthly some of the centre sheets are coated on heavy stock.  A different adjustments in the folding were needed.
