The Image Wrapper, manufactured by Powis Parker, is an excellent, innovative product that allows you to create custom hardcovers one at a time with any material, printed pattern, design or graphic you might desire. Simply take your oversized sheet that will make the outside of the hardcover, place it under one of the clear acrylic Image Wrapper templates (sold separately) and cut around the perimeter of the template on the Image Wrapper's self-healing surface. The options for book sizes vary in width and dimension, including 8" x 8", 8" x 10", 10" x 8", 8.5" x 11", 11" x 8.5", 8" x 12", 10" x 10" and 12" x 12" in thicknesses ranging from 0.25" to 1". Once you have your cover cut to size, you can adhere it to the Image Ready Hardcover, using the Image Wrapper to roll the cover flat against the surface. The final step is applying the double-sided Image Ready Liners to the inside of the book, which will eventually secure the book block with their peel-away adhesive sides.
While the Image Wrapper is not the fastest production method, only allowing for one hardcover to be made at a time, it's a wonderful tool for producing customized short-run hardcover books that look professional. Plus, with the Image Ready product line, you're able to purchase self-adhesive Image Ready hardcovers that are specifically designed to save time on short-run custom jobs.

Powis Parker's introduction video for the Image Wrapper IW-1
When a local customer purchases a new Image Wrapper IW-1 from us, we include our Saddle Point Systems One Year Local Warranty at no additional charge as described above.
Our San Francisco Bay Area customers can extend their service coverage to two years by purchasing our Saddle Point Systems Extended Performance Guarantee for their Image Wrapper for $270. In other words, you're paying for a one year service agreement and getting two years of complete coverage. Like our One Year SPS Warranty, our performance guarantee covers the cost of all parts, labor, travel time and on-site repair. Simply give us a call and one of our technicians will come to your company, usually by the next business day, and service your machine at no additional charge. If we can't fix your Image Wrapper IW-1 on site, we'll leave you a loaner to keep you up and running while we're repairing your machine.
After purchasing the Extended Annual Performance Guarantee, we'll e-mail you our Image Wrapper Service Agreement PDF for you to fill out. Then, either e-mail us a signed copy or mail us a signed hard copy to put the agreement in force. Annual service agreements must be purchased within 30 days of the original invoice date of your Image Wrapper IW-1 and are not valid unless signed and on file with us.
