Precious little things in life: How to make your own book cover with the title printed on your back: A detailled step-by-step guide
Shrouding the book has contributed to turning my bookshelf from "too much to do and colourful for a bedroom" to "cool, crunchy, easy, cleanly and brightly": . We offer a wide range of book covers, including custom book covers. Though we decided to have our book covered in blank papers, we have explored many possibilities and found a few inspirational images.
Browny, paper-covered books: We have also given up many other ornamental choices because of the impracticability of those volumes that have no overtitles. This, I believe, are great choices if you use the textbooks thusley for ornamental purposes. What are you looking for? B Burlap coated books: Cloth upholstered books: Wrapping papers, ScrapBooking papers or handicraft papers for coated books:
Graphic images book covers: Ancient Maps book covers: Hopefully the above images have been an inspiration to you to think outside the box when it comes to reading and how to do it. Well, as I've got my own accounts on. Vertical measurement of book thickness from top to bottom.
Circumferential length is determined by winding the measuring strip around the book, from the front to the back of the envelope. THE BOOK BY BATTLEING IT. Length is taken from one side of the book to the other one. Organize the ledgers, group them by sizes, and assemble all the ledgers at exactly the same high.
Each book with a non-standard thickness is placed in an "odd" stack for individual measurement and cutting later on. Stage 2 - Selecting the correct format of hardcopy. So the next big thing to concentrate on is the piece of papers you use to keep your accounts covered. First, how high and how wide is your biggest book?
Adds 3" to your circumferentially width to allow the wrapper to hold the envelope in place. Ensure that when the book is horizontally or crosswise, the book can be wrapped around it fully with a projection of approximately 1 1/2" on both sides.
Typical size papers available in most stationery shops are 8 1/2" x 11", 8 1/2" x 14" and 11" x 17". When the biggest book you are going to cover is 8 1/2" or less high and has a circumferential width of less than 12", you do not need 11" x 17" media.
When the biggest book you are going to cover is 8 1/2" or less high and has a circumferential width of less than 9", you do not need 8 1/2" x 14" media. But it is very likely that you will have a book that requires 11" x 17" papers.
Before you leak and buy papermaking, make sure you know what sized piece of papier you already own and see if you can work with what you have. By chance I had a giant pile of papers given to us years ago, 11''x15" fan-fold pages (attached to each other and divided by toothed edges ) with chain wheel apertures on both sides.
As it is always better (and cheaper) to work with what you have, I have used this piece ofaper for most of the book (some were small enough to be wrapped in normal 8 1/2" x 11" sheets) and cut/trimmed for the different book formats. I was pleased with the fact that the pages were connected because I had a few volumes so large that the 11" x 15" sheet was not enough to canvas them.
If they were too large and one page was not enough, I could use two pages without having to glue them together. But I know you don't all have a pile of continuous stationery like me, (and pinion feeder stationery? it's been over a decade since I' ve seen used) and this means if you have a book that is too large for the 11" x 17" stationery, you have to access to gluing two pieces of stationery together, or maybe you could use blank butchering stationery and slice it to the size.
It doesn't seem to me that the book borders are removed for the overall tidy appearance of the screen, but if you like the top and bottom borders tucked away, you need a sleeve like the one shown below: Select the group of equally large ledgers you want to start with and specify the type of hardcopy required for these ledgers.
You do not need to trim or trim in either vertical or vertical alignment if the book is exactly the same high. You must trim the book if the thickness of the piece ofaper is greater than the book is. Here you save a lot of money and power if you divide the book by shells.
I' ve been cutting several envelopes at once, as many pieces of cardboard as my shears could do. Even better if you have a cutting machine. In order not to have to take each piece of the book separately and use the scale, I got a pile of about 5 pieces (that is the number of pieces that my shears could trim at once) and I placed one of the book on the piece of piece of wood, with the bottom of the book matching the bottom of the piece ofaper.
Then I fold the surplus sheet of papers from top to top and make a fold that would indicate the precise size of the book. Eventually I trim the sheet of papers along the fold. Repeating the above I had the number of pages I needed to get all the first group' work.
I want to start this section by saying that I have a very small, cheap-oprinter, which sold at $9. 95 on Microcenter. Only suitable for 8 3/4" broad sheet of sheet music. Hopefully you have a great 11 " x 17" print machine that can be lined with 11 " x 17" papers, but if not, don't worry because I was able to do this with my little Cheap-O-Champion.
First I will tell you how I put the book title on the book cover that fits into my printers (8 ¾" or less high). Then I tell you how I glued print stickers to the book that used too large a sheet of sheet for my printers.
Remove the already trimmed sheet of sheet material and load it into your machine. Select "Page Layout" and click on "Size". If the" Page Setup" dialog box opens, enter the width and the page to use. Remember that the text editor displays this page in either landscape or verticality, so when you ask for the "Height", you will not enter the book but the page elevation when you rotate it upright.
My page is 7" wide x 14" high in my example below. When you have set the page to the right page length, move the flashing pointer to the middle of the page. With my example of a page dimension of 7" x 14" I would move my curser down 7".
Select the character width in relation to the width of the book back. Simply enter the name of the first book and click on the button Printout! When you have a small scale inkjet like mine, continue reading to see how to ink book covers for the bigger ones. So if you have a machine that can handle printing on bigger sheets of faxes, go to the 5. stage.
Now I would like to tell you how I was able to stick a label on the book that used too large a piece of waste for my printers. It' people here, the bigger ones got this one. Yes, I had to put a piece of a piece of paper over the book, then I had to put the book on a piece of extra piece of hardcopy and stick it over the first one.
This had to be done for all of my ledgers that were bigger than 8"¾". When you have a small size inkjet press and you don't want to cover the book and then try to put the book cover on a seperate page, you have the possibility to go to a near-by printers (Kinko's, Office Depot, staples, etc.) where you can put it on the bigger one.
Start with steppings 1-3, which tell you how to select and trim the bookwrapper. Rather than going to the 4th print of the book titles, simply use the" no print title" document to print your book. Print your titles on a seperate piece of 8 " x 11" A4 page printer-page.
Load 8 " x 11" x " 8 " paper on your machine. When you have set the page to the right page length, move the flashing pointer to the middle of the page. In these printouts the centre will always be 4 " from above, as the altitude always stays at 8 " ½ ".
Simply enter the name of the first book and click on the button Printout! Stage 5 - Covers your book. Now simply take your book sleeve, wrapping it around your book and folding the covers. For each group of equal size book, follow the 5 above instructions until all book sizes are fully closed.
Do you want to know how I texturized the cover below with pages of books? here! This is a very long and in-depth guide, but I want to make it as simple as possible for you to work on this one.
