Hardcover stories, a winning bet
If you want your picture book to be eligible to be in a window display at a top-tier (or even independent) bookstore, there’s no other way. The book has to be well written, convey a clear message with implicit values, have an attractive design and, despite this, the last requirement today is hardcover binding.
Do you want to see your illustrated album in the window of a high-level bookstore (or even independent)? Then there is no alternative. The book must be well written, it must convey a clear message with implicit values, have an attractive design and, above all, it must be bound in a hard cover.
The benefits of quality hardcover binding
- Hard cover is a winning bet
- It sets us apart from others
- Here at BABIDI-BÚ, we are experts in hardcover printing
- Publishers who do self-publishing don’t offer it
- It is the most popular format for gift giving
The hard cover is a way to distinguish ourselves
From our experience as specializing editors in children’s literature, we are constantly engaged in editing and publishing our hardcover albums, already having extensive experience in publishing this type of books. For this reason, we advise all authors wishing to publish a work that stands out for its artistic quality and professionalism of the final result, to give complete confidence to this type of binding.
Self-publishers and small publishers do not offer it.
The hard cover is much more expensive to produce compared to the soft cover. Therefore this type of printing is inaccessible to self-publishers and small publishers who print very limited runs. Furthermore, even for on demand production, hardcover printing is impossible to achieve.
In BABIDI-BÚ we don’t have this problem. We have been victoriously betting on this format for so long that we have no doubt that it is the best it can be for this type of work.
After years of experience, research and development, mistakes, understanding, starting over, looking for the best typography for us to compare all the phases of the process, forms, deadlines and costs with them … we can say it with confidence, hardcover binding is the winning strategy for children’s stories. It is now our goal to ensure that our authors can benefit from this experience.
The print runs of each of our titles, as well as the monthly production volume are so high that we reach competitive unit costs, just like those of large publishing groups. Therefore, we are able to make these books with the best quality and, above all, with a very affordable Final Price for the reader. Clearly, producing a book that, while being wonderful, is unsellable because it is out of the market price, makes all the previous work absolutely meaningless.
