Soft Cover

• The soft cover is made out of thick paper that remains flexible and soft to the touch.

• Once the cover is printed, it is recommended to add a lamination. It consists of fixing a transparent, shiny or matte thin layer on the cover. This finish touch protects the cover and makes it last for a long time.

• The soft cover’s advantage is certainly its competitive price compared to other types of cover. Moreover, it adapts easily to all creative ideas because you can print on it whatever you want: one or several pictures, a text, a logo, a student’s drawing, etc.

Hard Cover

• The hard cover is made out of thick cardboard that won’t bend. In other words, it is a cover with a rigid but elegant finishing.

• Just like the soft cover, the hard cover is flexible to any type of printing. Its advantage over softcover books is that it withstands longer thanks to the stronger material it is made of.

• A flyleaf is added between the cover and the title page of the yearbook. This page can either be left blank, or you can print personalized content on it.

Imitation Leather Cover

• The imitation leather cover has the appearance of real leather while being eco-friendly. Thanks to its high-end finishes, it gives the yearbook a timeless and luxurious effect.

• Several colors and shades of imitation leather are available to suit all tastes and wishes.

• Imitation leather cover’s advantage is that you can engrave a logo, a text or a drawing in it. The engraving can be gold, silver or white. It can also be printed on the front, back or on the spine of the leaver’s book.

• A flyleaf is added between the cover and the title page of the yearbook. This page can either be left blank, or you can print personalized content on it.


Perfect binding is the technique that most of our partner schools and students choose to bind their yearbook for a lower price. This method has the advantage of being fast and cheap. The pages of the yearbook are first printed separately, then assembled and glued directly onto the cover.

Sewn binding is a more advanced method because there is an extra step: all the pages of the yearbook are first printed, assembled and then sewn together before being glued onto the cover. Sewing ensures greater resistance but it’s more expensive than the perfect binding. It depends on your budget, we adapt to any request!

Spiral binding gives a look similar to the student syllabus. This method uses metal rings or plastic rings to bind the pages of the yearbook to the cover. This option is only available for soft covers.

Hot-melt binding assembles the leavers book with a transparent plastic cover and a black or white adhesive strip. We use this more “low-end” binding for the press proof when we send a printed test book to the students. This allows the students to check their yearbook design and make any changes to it before the printing and final binding of all copies.
