Covering and processing solutions

Extend the life of your books

Books in constant use deteriorate quickly. Whether student or classroom copies, books suffer from everday wear and tear, not to mention all those spilled drinks! With our covering and processing options below, you'll be able to keep your books in circulation longer, saving your school money.

Covering for textbooks and library books



Have plastic jackets fitted to your paperback books; protect dust jackets on hardbacks with clear sleeves.


Processing options for your library books

Shelf-ready books to your specification

We're aware that a librarian's time is precious, we endeavour to make book processing as simple as possible.

Set up a custom servicing programme for your library so that your books are supplied shelf ready. You can choose from any combination of our covering and processing options.


AR Labels

Have Accelerated Reader labels attached to books contained in the scheme. We make sure all the key information is clearly displayed, including: quiz number, AR level, points and interest level.



Send us a supply of your existing barcode stock to ensure that future books can be put straight into your library system.


Date Labels

Choose from plain, pocket or personalised date labels. All can be placed in the books to your specification. Supply us with a PDF sheet of your personalised labels and you're never have to worry about running out!


Dewey Labels

Set up a standard dewey template for your fiction and non-fiction.


Ownership Stamps

We'll use your existing library stamp to add the school's name clearly to your library stock.


RFID Tags & Tattle Tapes

If you have an existing security system we can use these tages to keep all your items secure.

Library system needs are always changing - if you can't see a process you're looking for let us know so that we can expand our range.

If you're starting a new library, introducing Accelerated Reader, or just looking for some help with what you should be stocking our experienced staff can help you put together comprehensive lists to get you headed in the right direction.
