Cover & Binding Options
Hardback Block Foil Cover
The pressed foil design fits in an area 15cm wide x 20cm high on the front of the cover.
No extra charge for premium leatherette!
Most schools use their crest along with the educational years within the design. You should be able to obtain a copy of the school crest or you can create your own artwork!
Your design needs to be high quality solid black & white (no shades of grey, colour or pixelation) full size digital copy or high quality print of the school crest or design you want to use.
When creating your own cover design, please keep it as simple as possible. A solid black and white line art drawing will work the best.

Softback Perfect Bound or Stapled Cover
Both perfect bound and 24pp stapled cover books have a softback gloss laminated cover. You can design the cover yourself from one of the blank blank cover templates or use any of the prepared cover designs within the themed template folders available to download from the Hardy's Yearbook Cloud Service.

Remember! The cover (front & back) is in addition to the number of pages in your yearbook i.e. page 01 is the first printed page as you open the book, not the front cover as is sometimes mistaken.
