Ez cover is a new range of patented slip on book covers that fit all NZ school exercise books, and are PVC-free.
Our high quality covers are reusable, recyclable, super quick to put on, our sizes fit perfectly and are cheaper per book than the stick on alternatives. Our covers were developed and made here in New Zealand.
Our covers are also made using some recycled content. We offer a 100% money back guarantee and we donate 5c from every cover purchased to the school of your choice.
I remember a million years ago the 'in thing' was to cover your books with pictures of movie stars, movies, places of where you wanted to go, pets etc. It would take ages cutting out everything, then placing it exactly where you wanted it to go, to finally getting the clear juraseal and placing it on top just to have all the pictures move, be left with air bubbles and in my case hair under it.
Fast forward some years later and my girls started school and I had to go thru the stress of covering their books. Luckily designs had come in but the major issue remained, I was still left with air bubbles and hair under it. Even taking my time, using little hands to help and using a ruler I could still not get in perfect - it stressed me out so much, as no one wants to be the kid/or be the mother with big air bubbles everywhere!
Then I saw an add and I was saved! Just before school started I was gearing my self up to go through the pain of it all again and the embarrasement when I won 5 covers from EZ covers. I was wrapped! I sat down with my daughter and went through all of the designs and worked out the sizes we required. Filled out the order form with the code I had to use and within a couple of days they arrived.
It was so simple you get the book open it up and slide the covers on. The hardest part was deciding what cover would be used for what book. The process was so painless and the covers looked amazing and even better we could use again for the following year! As I had only won 5 books and my daughter had 9 books we still were left to cover the rest and I swore then never again. That was when my eldest was six and she us ten now and her sister also goes to school.
We have reused most of those covers for the past four years. Even putting a new name tag on it and having my youngest use it. At the end of the year we take the covers off and just before school starts put them on the new stationery and if we are short jump on the tablet and order what is necessary. The whole process is oainless - now the drama lies on choosing from the selection available. The covers arrive with in a week and the girls are more than capable of doing it themselves where as I can sit back and daydream of the covers I used to have. My only complaint would be - why did it take them so long to make? If they had been around 30 odd years ago would of saved so many tears and fustration! Highly recommend to all the mummies out there!
I have always been obsessed with stationery, having loved it as a kid, then worked in a stationery shop as a teen and then became a teacher who loved stationery. I have passed this love on to my own two children too. As a kid I remember loving having nice looking school books with cool covers. You could spot your own book a mile away by the covering you had on your book. Sadly 30+ years ago the book covering was not quite as exciting.
I spent a few years covering my kids books and then I discovered ez covers. And they are easy too! Easy to order-the website is very user friendly. You just need to know the size of your books. Then your kids painstakingly spend hours choosing which designs they like. Or you do it for them. The covers arrive really quickly. And the covering of the books is so flippin easy. No stressing over bubble and creases. No swearing. Job done in about 10 mins. Plenty of extra time to do housework or watch Netflix. Even better, you can take them off and use them the next year too...we just change the labels. So yes, you do need these in your life. When life is busy and hectic, these make one job in life so much easier to do. And your child can spot their books in the pile and take some pride in their work in their books.
Cut your book covering time by a huge amount! The EZ Covers come in precut sizes so you just order the size you require, slip your book in, pop a label on the front and you're away. The next year remove the book, remove the label, put a fresh one on and put it on the new book. You can't get easier than that!
These covers are made from the same material as postal bags so it is very tough (ever tried ripping those open!) and the sealing process for the flaps is also very strong, I tried to rip it to create a custom cover and it wouldn't let go, I ended up using scissors.
The only down fall I've found to date on these covers is that they do not supply one to fit the Clever Kiwi books, hence the custom cover. The designs are from New Zealand designers and the covers themselves are locally made as well although I can't vouch for the origin sheets of printed material but it wouldn't surprise me if it's local as well.
The designs sell through quickly so get in fast if there's one you're after but they are so well priced it isn't the end of the world if you end up getting covers you don't end up using.
I would recommend every parent uses these, not only does it make it easier for kids to quickly find the book they're after, they also protect them and a small amount goes back to the school of your choosing at the same time.
For me EZ covers are one of the greatest inventions ever. Gone are the days of battling with juraseal at the beginning of each school year - sticking, peeling off, reapplying, smoothing - it can be so frustrating and time consuming!
EZ covers make covering books easy. Simply slip the front and back cover into the corresponding pocket and you're good to go. The website is easy to use and gives you a list of which covers fit each size of book. They have a good range of covers for both boys and girls but I do find that some of the more popular ones sell out fast so you need to get in quick. My son loves being involved in the decision process and it gets him excited for the new school year. We try to choose a different cover for each subject so he knows what each book is for. I love that they can be reused each year and I've found that they stay looking nice all year round (kids can be quite rough with their school books). I also love that some of the money that I spend goes to my school of choice.
We recommend this product to all of our family and friends - EZ covers are great value for money and perfect for busy parents because lets face it, life is busy enough.
