Hi All.

I've got 2 odd sized books: Vortex and Revelation, and the Brodart company doesn't sell single dust jacket covers and offered no help when I asked about getting just a couple covers (even if they were part of a larger order). What do people do to cover an occasional dustjacket that's an odd size? I don't want to buy 10 of these weird sized covers. I'm reluctant to buy a roll, because I don't think I'd find the right heights for future books, no matter how much I fold the covers.

Are there any other places that make covers comparable to Brodarts that sell singles? The Gaylord company doesn't seem to sell singles as far as I can tell from their website.

thanks,

- Frank

I've been buying rolls for the past 10-14 years. They work great for me. On the smaller books I do have to trim them, but I've not had a problem with any size book with the obvious exception of books taller than the cover. Also, I use the fold-on type of cover from Brodart. I like the rolls, too, as I can cut the correct length so the ends of the dust jacket get covered.

I also purchase the rolls. They work great. I believe I purchased the 12" size, which covers about 80% of what I need.

The effect is the important thing, how you achieve it is not.......
