Types Of Clear Report Covers

Clear Report Binding CoversClear report covers are a great way to finish off a bound document, book or report. They are clear, protective and very affordable. So which style of clear cover should you use? I will explain what’s out there and hopefully help you make an educated decision on the best style for you.

The biggest difference in clear report covers is their thickness. Clear covers come in 5, 7 and 10 mil thicknesses. The higher the number, the thicker the cover. A mil is one-thousandth of an inch. Most people get 5 or 7 mil covers, but every so often someone wants the thicker 10 mil cover. The thickness is really a matter of preference. The thickness will affect the way the clear cover page turns.

Here are a few different styles of clear covers:

  • Clear vs Matte – Clear covers come in a 100% clear finish and a matte finish. The clear finish is the most popular type used, but some people prefer the frosted look of the matte cover.
  • Standard vs Oversize – Standard covers measure in at 8 ½ x 11-inches in size and have square corners. These covers are designed to match up with standard sheets of paper. Oversized clear covers are 8 ¾ x 11 ¼-inches and have round corners. Again, the style of cover used is a matter of personal preference.

Most clear covers can be punched in a binding machine. This includes comb, wire, coil and Velobind machines. I consider clear covers to be the best way to finish off a book or document. They simply look classy and professional.
