We've introduced lots of new cover options this year, from Coastal Linens, and Haze, the beautiful new Micro Leather shade, to our new embossing options. It's great to see them all progressing through the Bindery. Here we'd like to explain a little more about our new Designable Canvas covers, the options available and how to order them in Workspace. And scroll down for 20% off your Q Book orders — for a limited time!

For now the new canvas covers are available for Q Books and Portrait Albums. In Q Books they replace the old Designable cover option. If you're ordering in Photojunction not much will change except for the canvas stock replacing the old print substrate. The process remains the same, and so does the price.

However most people these days order in Workspace, and this post explains the process and the styles available. All you need to do is place your Q Book order as usual, and select the Designable option. Choose your cover image and select a cover style from the options below. We will design the cover for you once the order is confirmed and paid for, and send you a proof for approval. Click here for more about using the Online Album Designer to order Q Books.

Five styles to choose from:

Except for "Extended" the photographic image appears on the front cover only: the spine and back will be printed with a colour picked from the photo. With most styles you can add two lines of text (for example names and date) to the front cover and spine, plus your logo to the back.

Signature

Bold text to suit a bold image. We always supply a proof for you to approve before we go to print.

Scriptive

A delicate script, placed on a panel positioned to suit the image supplied. Covers can be black and white or colour in any style.

Rocky

The top line is smaller — a perfect place to say "Our Engagement" or "Our Wedding", for example, with the main text below.

Photo only

Choose this option if you don't want any text on the cover. Back and spine colour will be picked from the front cover image.

Extended

With a suitable image you can wrap the cover around the spine and even on to the back cover. Scriptive text on the front cover only.

Spine and back cover treatment

This shows a Signature style book, with the spine and back cover printed using a colour picked from the cover photo.
