For customers working with predictable sizes, our unique consignment programs ensure that coverboard is always on their site when they need it.
The large volume of uncut coverboard we stock enables us to run an efficient ratio of trim loss. If something is needed fast or in small volume, cutting from a proper master size will be nearly as cost effective as high volume orders.
So for high quality, quick turnaround, and a choice of materials for your coverboards, please choose Circle Inc. as your preferred supplier.
NEW KID ON THE BLOCK
Paul Zompa, VP Sales & Marketing
Coverluxe was born only eight years ago. Since its inception, Coverluxe has provided alternative covering materials to the book, stationery, and fancy packaging providers already being serviced by well-established competitors.
Coverluxe products complimented those being produced from its sister company Flock Tex Inc., a global player in the luxury packaging industry for 34 years. Both companies are independently owned and operated family businesses.
Coverluxe initially piggybacked on Flock Tex's established customer relationships and distribution system, and began developing book and binding covering products for them.
Coverluxe first created the Coverluxe trademark when it introduced its proprietary version of a 9 pt. leatherette product. Through this entry, Coverluxe established market recognition in the cover material industry.
Shortly after Coverluxe was launched, concern about consolidation among publishers and printers, and reductions in market demand, became common. Buyers started looking for lower cost 9 pt. alternatives. Coverluxe responded to the market buzz by introducing Coverluxe Lite.
This product distinguished itself from competitors by offering a thinner saturated substrate, maintaining the same rich finish as the original 9 pt. Coverluxe, and meeting customer product requirements for binding strength and high fold.
As book production decreased, demands for aggressive pricing and lower cost cover alternatives rose. Coverluxe developed its Coverluxe EconoLite in response. It pairs the same substrate as Coverluxe Lite with a more economical coating.
