Prototypes/dummies for books, packaging, displays, slipcases and boxes

Having designed your book, box or display, you may need to see how it looks and feels before going into large-scale production.

With Essex Bookbinders you are in good hands; we can advise you on various production and finishing methods.  You can try various options to see if they work and then modify them where necessary. You may need to see which materials work, which colours look good and whether your design gives you the result you want. We can also help with the design and functionality of complex boxes and displays. Also, sometimes it is necessary to know the weight of a finished product if it is to be delivered by post or courier.

We are happy to produce prototypes/dummies even if we are not involved in the end production. Essex Bookbinders also offer a consultancy service to oversee the end production for you, if required.
