Each of the following pdf files are a single sheet.

Wire-O diagrams illustrate a variety of cover styles.

Scoring guideline includes illustrations, a chart and calculations for planning a wrap around cover for your wireO project.

Thick books over 1" are too big for the largest wire-O, this sheet has some ideas. Testing is definitely recommended.

Step by step diagrams to construct this increasingly popular style. Deceptively simple, this looks outstanding with the right balance of stock and proportions. Shown are examples that used contrast on the "strike" area.
