Great cover designs and materials really do impact book sales. Frequently, book buyers will pull a book off the store's shelf simply because the cover or jacket caught their eye.
In keeping with our tradition of providing publishers with innovative and attractive cover materials, Phoenix Color recently introduced it's trademarked VibraMotion brand effect, the newest addition to our award-winning line of special effects.
With this new special effect, only available at Phoenix Color, publishers can add depth, three dimensionality, and motion to book jackets and covers, with eye-catching flashes and spins that change at different viewing angles.
This exclusive, patent pending technology creates various pleasing visual effects on many different substrates, including standard white papers, metallized papers, foil stamped substrates, holographic foil stamped substrates, and Type II paper stocks.
The VibraMotion effect is most dramatic on dark colors, solids, gradients (vignettes), and highly reflective substrates (i.e. foils and holographic foils). The effect is more subtle when used with pastels and light colors, unless used with foils. It's not recommended on white areas, and textures in register with color changes.
