In order to be suitable for such an application, your fabric will need to have a special backing applied to the back side of it. The backing provides stiffness to the fabric, making it easier to work with and more durable. The backing needs to be non-breathable, or airtight, so it can be easily cut on a vacuum table, which uses suction to hold the fabric in place for easier cutting. These are common in large-scale operations, but smaller table-top versions are also available for hobbyists and part-time craftspeople. The backing should also be opaque to hide any spots, patterns or defects on the item being covered, which would distract from the beauty of the fabric covering.
Our engineers have developed a process called FabPaper® which gently and permanently bonds the proper backing to your favorite fabric without introducing any bowing or wrinkling. Our team has perfected our process over many years, and this particular paper backing solution has been proven over and over again to be the best backing for this application.
Fabric treated with FabPaper ® can be used on scrapbook covers, photo album covers, binder covers or any other special book that deserves to stand out from the rest. We can also apply FabPaper ® to other materials such as leather, snakeskin or any other animal hydes. We invite you to send us something unique that we haven't ever processed before! Your imagination my be better than ours. You may just get your project featured on our blog.
