Product Description

Enviro black card (square) with natural hardboard covers and black WIRO spine. Contains 60 sides of 270gsm 100% recycled black card.

We have recently overhauled this book to make it more stable and resistant to atmospheric conditions. Casebound books are less tolerant of humidity than wiro as their covers are bound-in on the spine allowing no room for movement - recycled material tends to be more prone to environmental conditions. As such the NEW Enviro casebound book now proudly comes with 'hardboard' covers - which apart from being produced from recycled material are extremely hardwearing, resistant to moisture and look great!

ALL of our ENVIRO books are produced using locally sourced quality recycled material to considerably reduce our carbon footprint adding to the credentials of our ENVIRO products. We like to think that we take sustainability and renewable issues seriously and endeavour, where possible, to act in a positive manner to the environment.

This book is bound with a black WIRO spine. WIRO binding provides extra expandability in the spine to attach added material (cuttings/swatches etc) to internal pages. It allows for the book to be completely folded round on itself taking up minimum desktop footprint. Pages can be easily pulled out should you need to. Small wiro loops hold the book better together but offer limited expandability whilst larger wiro loops provide better expandability but can make the book feel very floppy. We use a 3/4" WIRO which we believe is the best size for this number of pages to provide a happy compromise between structure and practical usage. Please remember however that a WIRO bind is less secure than a casebound book as the WIRO is pliable and will distort / break down without care. We recommend that users get in to the habit of manually closing the wire loops on a regular basis particularly if their books have a good number of pages with added material. Too much insertion will however render the binding useless as its tolerance will be exceeded.

We cannot guarantee that the card is 100% acid-free and would be suspicious of those who make the claim that their recycled book is! The card is produced from paper waste from mixed sources. Some of the content may well be acid free however a percentage will always have some acid content in it. Having said that, chalk does get added to the paper pulp during production to neutralise acidity and keep it to a minimum - however, hand on heart, we cannot claim that it is 100% acid free.

Enviro covers are a recycled product and as such are subject to surface variation on colour and texture.
