Book wraps, also known as bookmarks, are a small advertisement placed upon the hardback book cover of a book. They serve to advertise the title and author as well as a brief overview of the content. A number of these book covers are printed on both sides, while some are placed on one side and the other. They are normally made from vinyl, but can be made from paper as well. Some of these book covers are only used for promotional purposes while others are made to be displayed and sold cardboard boxes.
The purpose of placing the book covers on books is not only to let people know what the book contains, but also to sell them. Many times bookstores will display books without having any type of advertisement on them. The owner of the bookstore can place a book cover on the book and then promote it by displaying it in their store. This allows people who are browsing the store to know more about the book without actually seeing it.
The cost of purchasing a book cover, whether vinyl or paper, depends on what is being displayed. Many book covers are very inexpensive, but others may be quite expensive. A custom book wrap will usually cost less than the cover of a standard book. A decorative book wrap is much higher in price, but may still be affordable for some. If the publisher has decided to create several book covers using the same illustration, the costs for each will be separate postal boxes.
In addition to advertising the title and author, the book wrap also adds a decorative finishing touch. These book covers are often made of fabric that can be tied at the top of the back so that they hang down instead of simply hanging on the top of the book. They can be wrapped in a variety of ways, including a variety of different adhesives. Some use hot glue, others stamp their image onto the material using a stamp machine. Many book covers are personalized with names or even photographs.
Many book covers are custom-made using the best available materials. This may include faux leather, foil, cloth, paper, or another material that gives the designer the freedom to choose the finish on the cover. The size of the book cover is often determined by the size of the book itself. Many publishers choose to use book wraps that are half the size of the book, which means that the title is not visible until the book is open.
Most book cover designers can create a stunning cover for any book. It is important to keep in mind that the appearance of the cover does not have to follow the appearance of the book itself. For example, a humorous book cover featuring a cat eating an apple may look silly, but it will probably capture the children’s attention. Book covers may be printed in a variety of bright colors and patterns. The wrapping is a way for the publisher to provide a creative finishing touch to the book cover.
