Wise Publications produces all types of book bindings right here in our full
service plant in Louisiana . We are not a broker for others and Mr. Wise still
manages the production staff himself everyday. We have a lot of photos of
volumes done throughout our literature here.
Hardback books are priced as having a full color printed & laminated cover
with side sewing for permanence. Cloth covers with foil stamping are often
ordered, especially for Genealogy. Leather, Dust jackets, two-tone Half bindings,
foldout Charts or children’s Board Books are sometimes requested.
Perfect Bound paperbacks are done with strong adhesive in any
quantity and will need to include a spine imprint for store shelving.
All sizes are produced but usually the book genre calls for a certain
size & appearance for sales purposes. A lot of authors get both the
cost effective Paperbacks and also some nice Casebound.
