I live in the Sacramento area. I've been ordering Dust cover protectors from Michigan (Pro-Art or Demco). I'd love to save on shipping and have a store here within driving distance of Sacramento that offered these for sale. Am I the only one protecting dust covers in protectors? Any help with be welcomed with open arms!

I usually buy 10-inch and 12-inch rolls of Demco PaperFold direct from them. All of our dust jackets are covered (old and new, collection and inventory) before they are added to the collections or read. Often if a book is purchased with an old scratched or clouded one, we'll replace it. It is impressive how much nicer a book can look with a fresh plastic cover that is properly fitted to the jacket with crisp creases. I don't have a bone folder for this though I should.

I agree with you that books look better with a fresh protector on them. I do that with all the books I buy that have an old DJP on them. If you have a Michael's or a Joannes Fabric near you, they carry bone folders for inexpensive prices. :)

That's a good suggestion regarding the craft stores. I'll look there on our next visit. I thought I might only find them at a Blick art supply or online from a Demco or other library supply company. I do use the plastic handle of scissors to make a crease sometimes.

Occasionally I've found stores that sell the pre-cut jacket protectors but the cost is rather high compared with buying a 300-foot roll. With our quantity of books, we go through them in time.

I have a follow up bit of news for those in the Sacramento area: Beers books covers (for a nominal fee) books. You can bring them in and they will do the work!

edit: and when I say "nominal" I mean about just over $1 a book!
