If you work at any sort of library system then you probably have some weathered books in your life. It can be a huge expense to repair and recover books time after time without proper covers for them. What if you have a laminate covering for them? Laminate covers stick right to the book and can cause damage with the glue that holds them in place. Let’s not even talk about the books that have raised or detailed binding. A laminate covering will ruin the tactile sensation. So, what can you do to protect your books without causing them damage over time? Well, you can invest in the Colibri Cover System.
Create Custom Covers
Books come in all shapes and sizes, so you will probably need your cover solutions to be as flexible as possible. Colibri cover solutions fit about 98% of books and it only takes about 20 seconds to get them covered. Are you tired of having to tape the pages of magazines back together? Colibri can cover those too. Some book covers only cover the front and back of books, but these cover it all. The edges, front, back, and spine will all be protected from scratches, scuffs, and dirt.
Get protection from all angles.
With Colibri you are creating covers with water-proof, light-resistant, and acid-free plastic. That means you can finally take that book into the bathtub without worrying half as much as you used to! They won’t fade after sitting in a display window for a little while. You can rest a little bit easier lending out your books to the kids in your library because their sticky fingers are no match for Colibri.
