Book Cloths vs Regular fabrics

Comparing fabric to a book cloth, these are two different manufacturing processes. The process for book cloth includes a tissue backing to glue the cloth to the boards. You cannot glue a standard cloth to a board and glue. Early centuries chose to add fabrics to the books to provide longevity to repel dirt, oils, and water.

What can you foil stamp on a cloth cover book?

Normally with novel books, a black and white interior the author or publisher chooses to foil stamp on the front cover and spine. Typically, the front cover foil you place the title of the book. The spine will foil the title, author, and a logo of the publisher.

Some of our clients foil on all three pieces of the cover. An example image below the back cover is foiled with an image of a palm tree. The publisher chose to foil the front, spine, and back cover. This particular author foiled the front cover title only – spine title and author’s name – back cover the image of a palm tree.
