All the talk of hardcover and softcover video brochures is confusing to the uninitiated, especially as the term softcover does not relate to something flimsy, but to a 300gsm, or 18PT C1S card, wrapped around a foam base with outer lamination – it’s anything but soft!
To make the differences clear between the two cover types we have added a gallery of pictures to highlight the key differences. The hardcover has a lip the softcover does not. The hardcover is made from a 1,000gsm greyboard lined with a 157g silk paper. It’s hard, heavy, and durable with a high-end look and feel. Hardcovers are approximately 10% more expensive and take longer to produce.
The softcovers are cut from a standard printed folding boxboard and laminated. This makes them quick and easy to print, laminate, and die-cut. Because they are produced from a single sheet, the design template is simple and easy to follow making then less complicated to design than the hardcovers. Approximately 80% of our video brochure productions are softcover productions.
Why should you use a hardcover or softcover video brochures?
