Excel® is a light-weight, saturated cover material offered in Classic, Select, and Design Collections, each with unique color and finish combinations. Our Classic Collection features traditional colors with a standard gloss finish. Browse our Select Collection for a wider range of fashion-forward colors with a modern, satin finish.  The Design Collection is perfect when you require the look and finish of linen, but prefer the ease of use of a saturated material.  Excel® has a flexible slim-fitting composition and our library of stocked colors make it the designer's choice for style with economy and the manufacturer's ally in machine and hand-made production processes.  Excel® is perfect for creating eye-catching book covers, packaging, and stationery.
