You can use a ruler to make lines on the spiral bound books.

What coloring material can be used on the books?
Crayon, Markers, Colored Pencils, Watercolor and Acrylic Paints, Puffy Paints, etc. can be used on the covers and pages of our books. We do not recommend using permanent markers.

Do I have to use your Bear Crayons on the books?
No. You can use any type of crayon you have. Bear Crayons are nice because they do not flake as much as a typical wax crayon, you can erase them, and they will not break as easily.

What materials are used to make the hard cover of the Bare Books?
The covers of our Bare Books are made with the same materials that any typical hard-covered book is made with – a chipboard base with a durable paper cover. Our paper cover is not coated, so you can color and design it yourself.

What is the weight of the inside pages of your Bare Books?
The inside pages of our Bare Books are made with a very high quality 65lb 7pt white vellum return card stock.

What is the difference between the book covers and the book jackets?
The slip-on jackets can be taken on and off. The cover of the Bare Book slips into the pockets of the jacket.

You can reposition the adhesive cover during the initial application, but it may pull up color from the illustrations. Once applied, the adhesive cover becomes permanent.
