Creating the cover is one of the most exciting moments in the book design process. Graphistudio has always offered an immense richness of materials and customizations. In order to guarantee uniqueness and exclusivity, our covers are all handmade in single copy, on the basis of the aesthetical sensibility and choices made by each client.
The combination of the material, color and front panel layout is essential: the leathers, the Nappas, the metals or the silks, to name but a few, selected in the preferred tones, embrace die-cuts, images, inserts, embossing and seams. The spine and back, which enrich the front cover, can be chosen to match the main chromatic tones or to elegantly contrast them with colors and textures.
The choice of format options, papers, covers, coordinated accessories and price points are very extensive. These options are perfect to produce your own unique book tailored towards meeting your specific needs.
The widest range available on the market
Unlimited options, finishing and combinations to offer you the best of the Made in Italy quality.
Sizes range from the majestic 16×20” to the new 14×18”, the classic 12×16” to the compact 9.5×13”. The corresponding landscape and square versions are also available.
Choose from photographic or metallic paper with digital laser printing, or as an alternative, the textured, smooth or pearl paper with digital offset printing.
All options are available with glossy or matte lamination with the exception of the metallic paper which is already laminated by default.
To enhance and preserve the high fidelity of the book prints, Graphistudio has invented and patented a revolutionary binding system, whose superior quality is literally self evident. The perfectly lay-flat opening allows a panoramic and detailed view of the whole spread, including the parts positioned over the seam. The result is a nearly cinematographic, captivating experience. The innovative mechanics of the block guarantees a quality unalterable throughout the years.
The accurate preparation and attention to the details is what distinguish a quality product. Among these details, one of the most important is the lining: its color guarantees a harmonic combination between the outside and inside of the book, and its texture creates a balanced link between the precious cover material and the finishing of the pages. Apart from these aesthetical reasons, the linings play a basic role in the mechanical connection between the cover and the block. For this reason only the best cloths are used to fulfill this essential function. The color palette is extremely wide, as is the refined choice of the spun cloths available.
RIGID PAGES: The real connection between the digital and the traditional worlds, giving the book its massive and linear outlook.
THICK PAGES: This option confers heaviness to the book by adding an insert between the pages.
THIN PAGES: This option guarantees a flexible page, conferring a modern and slim look to the book

The 8×12” option can be customized with any cover available in our catalogue, while the 6×8” and 4×5” can be produced with either the dust cover jackets or the printed hard back. Each option makes the parent book a precious and authentic combination of the Wedding Book.
