    An Economical Solution

    In today's economy, school systems are forced to make the most of an increasingly limited budget. The purchase of textbooks represents a considerable investment that is given great consideration. You hope that they will last for many years, however this is often not the case. Student use can render a textbook unusable long before their content needs to be changed. With the cost of most new textbooks at $100 or more, rebinding can provide an economical solution at about 80-90% of the cost of buying replacement books. In many cases, the rebound textbook will be more durable than ever.

    GBS Books has two rebinding options available. Textbooks can be rebound in our traditional color buckram covers or our new DigiCovers. DigiCovers scan the original textbook covers and then reprints them on the freshly rebound books.
