Bible Covers

There are so many ways to customize and personalize Bible covers:

  • Children’s Bible with a colorful paperboard, cardboard, millboard or duplex board, polyurethane leather (PU), etc.
  • Bible for men – sturdy leather or leatherette cover in a black, light brown, dark brown, or a color combination.
  • Bible for women – Covers can have a wide variety of colors, embossed with gold text or engraved with a design or your choice, like a praying hands design or a cross.

Bible Paper

Paper is one of the most important features of a Bible. Legibility and usability are affected by the type of paper the text is printed on.

Not all Bible paper is the same. It comes in different levels of thickness and brightness, and each type is suitable for a different purpose. For example, we would need different paper in a Bible for notetaking than a Bible that’s made for carrying easily, or one made for preaching.

The paper has to be thin in order to fit over 700,000 words in a single volume in a manageable size. Study Bibles have a lot more words.

Unlike other books, which might be read one time, the paper in a Bible needs to be durable so that it can withstand being read multiple times for many years. Bible paper is a premium-grade paper that’s made for heavy use.

In order to get the paper to be thin enough to keep the Bibles small and to keep the paper from discoloring over time, lignin (the cell structure in the wood pulp) is removed. Titanium dioxide is added to increase opacity, which also increases the cost. The amount of titanium dioxide will also affect the brightness and contrast of the paper.

When holding the paper to the light, you’ll see less light shine through and the paper will be consistent in its formation (uneven pulp fiber). It will look smooth instead of splotchy.

In order to remain thin, the more expensive paper is coated so it doesn’t absorb moisture. It’s acid-free so it doesn’t change color over time.

Artful Dragon has access to professional bible printing companies with excellent printing equipment, which can perfectly print very thin bible paper, such as 33gsm, 40gsm, 45gsm, 50gsm, 55gsm, and so on.

There are lots of high-quality papers available for Bible production and they vary in opacity, brightness, and thickness. This is why two Bibles can look vastly different just in their paper alone. Some paper is better suited to one purpose over another. To get the most out of your Bible consider what you’re using it for and then look for a Bible with the paper that’s best suited for that purpose.

Flexibinding For Journaling Bibles

Flexibound books, also known as flexibinding is a bookbinding style that wraps around a book’s pages securing them in a bind a bit thicker than that of a softcover bind. It sits between paperback binding and hardback binding in terms of its structure and cost to manufacture.

The cover is made with a flexible card stock, rather than a rigid binding board, meaning that the end result is a lightweight book with a flexible cover.

The finished cover overhangs the book block, so the general appearance is similar to a hardback. In fact all production stages up to the casing-in process are the same as a hardback including sewn sections, affixing endpapers, the option of adding head and tail bands, all of which gives the end result an inherent strength.

Flexibound binding is usually one of the more affordable options in professional printing services and looks significantly better to consumers and readers, with a much higher perceived value than traditional paperbacks.
