First in South Africa – User-Friendly Adhesive Book Covers
As in other countries, life and living conditions in South Africa have been challenging for more than a year, greatly exacerbated by the advent of the dreaded coronavirus and measures that are taken to curb and contain the rapid spread of this infection and its potential complications.
Masked and Back at School
Fortunately, conditions have improved to such an extent that South African children are once again back at school, covered books and all, albeit wearing masks. Mask-wearing has had an unintended but beneficial knock-on consequence. Masks also provide a degree of protection from usual seasonal colds and “normal” flu that typically spread like wildfire from one child to the next in a school environment.
The range that is obtainable from our company, Labels4School, features fun, exciting motifs and designs that make them attractive to schoolgoing children and adults alike. Little ones can now look forward to protecting their faces, whereas they may have done so grudgingly before.
2022 is Around the Corner
Although many youngsters are likely to need new school book covers right now, January 2022 is not far away. Then it is back to school again and back to the “you know what” once more. Teachers’ instructions must be followed to the letter: “Cover your books.”
Books Covered with Protective Product
Until children are old enough to acquire the dexterity to cover their books suitably, this time-consuming task inevitably befalls parents. It is most certainly not most parents’ favourite activity, particularly when they have to apply some type of clear film with which to ensure that books remain neat and do not become tatty after a few weeks or months.
Traditional plastic film is difficult to handle, even for adults, especially if a neatly covered result is important, which it always is. Depending on the product, it may be slippery, sticking to itself and certain surfaces other than on books, where it is intended to go. This process may take a great deal of time, patience, and effort when numerous covers are involved, and this has been so for many decades – that is, until now.
Great News About New Book Covers
At Labels4School, we are delighted to offer parents and their children a new product – a first in South African schools, certain to be a hit with teachers too. Our book covers, also known as sticky sleeves, are available in packs of four and may be personalised.
Our self-adhesive vinyl sticky sleeves are pre-cut and are ideal for adhering to books accurately and neatly. You only cut away the corner and spine wedges – no wrapping or sticky tape required, nor fiddling about and fighting with the traditional clear contact that was traditionally applied on top. Instead, we include free, clear slip-on sleeves that serve as a final protective layer.
These innovative, quality covers are made and printed in this country, a characteristic appreciated by proud South African parents. Durable, wipe-clean, easy-to-apply self-adhesive sticky sleeves can transform back-to-school book-covering blues into an activity filled with fun.
