Die-cutting allows you to cut out specific areas or shapes on your cover, allowing text or part of an image to show through from the inside.
SPOT UV TREATMENT
Spot UV is a great treatment to use if there are specific areas (or spots) on your cover that you would like to highlight. The application can deepen the color of the area and be very shiny or flattened to a matte finish.
EMBOSSING AND DEBOSSING
Embossing is a technique which creates a raised, or 3D image on a piece of paper. Embossing can also be used with foil stamping or on a full-color cover to create an even more unique look. Debossing uses the same techniques as embossing, except the image is depressed (lowered) instead of raised
Foil stamping involves the use of heat to transfer metallic foil to a solid surface. Foil stamping can be combined with embossing or debossing to create a very striking 3D image on your cover.
Lenticular printing is used to produce printed images with an illusion of depth, or the ability to change or move as the image is viewed from different angles like a hologram.
Endsheets are the thick paper attached to both the inside front and back covers of a hard cover yearbook and the flyleaf (first and last sheets in a book before and after the book content). They are available in stock colors or can be custom designed.
Leatherette covers are made of synthetic materials that are made to look like leather but are much more durable. Typically, leatherette yearbooks use foil stamping, embossing and/or debossing to accentuate the school name and cover design.

These small ornamental bands are attached to the top and bottom of a hard cover book block and serve as a decorative way to hide the binding application or stitching on the spine of a yearbook.
