Fastback® Composition Hardcovers are hardbound book cases wrapped with an extremely durable glossy vinyl finish that resists scuffing and moisture damage.

Composition hardcovers are an excellent choice for heavily handled documents that require a professional appearance. To customize hardcovers on-demand with no setup fee, print on our matching FoilFast® Composition Title Sheets that adhere directly to the book for an elegant foil printed front cover. Available in standard sized 8.5" x 11" sets of 25 hardcovers in Black, Dark Blue and White. Widths range from 0.25" to 1.5".
Fastback® Suede Hardcovers are beautiful portrait book casings with self-adhesive sheets that adhere the endleaves of the book block to the hardcover, using a Fastback® Tape Binder in conjunction with Powis' Hardcover Guide. We carry faux suede which is a luxurious, smooth texture that is both supple and aesthetically pleasing. Hardcovers with suede finishes have a tactile appeal that make them perfect for high end presentations, theses and self-published books. To customize hardcovers on-demand with no setup fee, print on our matching FoilFast® Suede Title Sheets that adhere directly to the book for an elegant foil printed front cover.

Check out our ImageBack supplies, manufactured by Powis Parker, to begin creating your very own custom wrapped hardcover books using the Image Wrapper system. With the peel-off adhesive liner surrounding the ImageBack Hardcovers, it's possible to neatly and efficiently adhere any printed cover with virtually any material. Then, using ImageBack liners placed on the cardboard within the hardcovers, simply peel back the non-stick sheet and set your bound book block into the hardcover case using the Fastback® Hardcover Guide.
With our new pressure sensitive hardcover adhesive boards, making your own hardbound book has never been easier. These adhesive foam boards, also known as Bella boards, are manufactured by hardcover binding experts Powis Parker and provide excellent strength and flexibility with an elegant width of 1mm. Designed to work with the Fastback® tape binding system, you simply remove the liner sheet of each board, place them on the front and back of your book block, wrap the book with your scored cover and apply pressure with either the Powis PhotoPress, a cutter clamp or another pressure device. The pressure will activate the glue in the board, adhering it to the endleaves and cover where it's ready to be three-knife trimmed to any size. Hardcover adhesive boards are available in dimensions of 9" x 12", 12" x 12" and 12" x 18".
