Our exclusive one surface printing combines all customizable stickers on a single reformatted reprint. Product options include spine label, special alerts, contents label, platform, and logo options to name a few. This accommodating printing stimulates patrons’ interest and increases circulation by featuring your library’s logo and brand identity without harming the original artwork. We print to the exact size of the designated casing then trim and insert the single printed piece to match your custom profile.
