What is a 'self cover'?

Cover Yourself

Self-cover is another type of book binding. Using a self-cover means that the cover of your book is made of the same material as the inside pages. This is commonly used for newsletters and other booklets. It works well with saddle stitch binding and staple binding. The advantage of using a self cover is that this is usually cheaper than using a heavier paper or card stock. However, self covers are not suitable for every type of publication. They are not usually used with books and journals.
