Back to School | Ditch the Duraseal with EZ Cover

New Zealand's Top Mummy Blogger Blog School Book Covers

Welcome to the 5th post in a little series I’m going to refer to as All the Mummas Say Hell Yes! The Best Nest Goes Back to School 2016!  Whoop whoop!  Uniforms, BYOD, shoes, haircuts, stationery, lunch boxes, covering books, HELP!

I’ve always loved the annual book covering tradition.  I was that teenage girl who religiously collected magazine images, cut them out and made perfect Cleo/Dolly/Cosmo montages on my ring binders and exercise books.  But I have a infamous lack of patience and a furious temper (it’s true!) which does not mix well with covering books.   

One of the bonuses of kids is that you get to cover their books too (this is up for debate of course).  After a 15 year break between covers it took me a while to get my groove back, but the old covering technique quickly returned as did the satisfaction of spending hours caressing 1B5 exercise books.  Not.  Covering books because you are a wicked perfectionist and can’t trust the job to anyone else is totally different from covering your books because Keanu Reeves is a teenage girls dreamboat.

But I digress.

So, I will revise this sweeping statement; I always loved the annual book covering tradition until I tried EZ Covers.  Now I love EZ Covers so much I should probably just go ahead and marry them.  That much I swear is true!

There is actually zero effort involved in covering books with EZ Covers and every one turns out perfect.  I cannot believe I have been a slave to sticky, single-use covers for years!  The cost and time savings are seriously massive, plus these covers are eco-friendly in that they are made from recycled PVC-free materials, they last for ages so can be reused and they can be recycled.  

Take a look at the image below, using these Wonders of the Modern World is as simple as inserting each book cover into the flaps.  At a stretch I would say it takes 20 seconds to cover a book.  <<<<<  Not joking.  $1.70 per book and 20 seconds of your time.  LOVE.

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.

  1. Omgosh my worst nightmare solved!!
    No matter what tip/trick i hear or see to duracell my boys (x2) books they everytime end up an epic #ParentFail!!
    These are the best invention ever…where have I been?! Their covers look so so cool too better than the duracell options in my opnion and affordable how awesome 🙂

  2. OMG! These sound awesome! I seem to be “challenged” when it comes to covering books – always get bubbles, it sticks to the table, to my fingers etc. Hmmm and I put it on upside down ?

  3. What a great invention, for us parents with school kids! Make life so much easier and keep their exercise books in better condition..yes please

  4. These look amazing and such wonderful designs. They look so easy to use. I too had a long (10yr) gap between having to remember how to use this dreaded Duraseal and now my Miss 5 is wanting ‘cool’ looking books like her class mates. I would love to try these on her books 🙂
