Sample Books, Stack Books & Decks
Inspire your clientele with a tailor-made stack deck designed to fit your exact specifications. With an infinite variety of options available, stack books are built and arranged by fabric, color, price or special collection with options such as custom covers, photo inserts, strip or frame ID, VIPER Clear Frame and more. Each sample undergoes careful consideration for placement within a sample deck. Most swatch samples are pinked to prevent fraying, others are able to be straight cut and some may require serging. Presentation format is determined by your specific need, samples can be arranged in a simple stack having the same height and width, a waterfall or vignette format. Flexible formatting options allow for custom presentations, displaying large scale patterns and colors to be viewed in comparison to other swatches easily. From the time fabric bolts arrive at our door to the time completed projects are shipped, every process is controlled within one location. We coordinate the entire process, from lay-up, cutting, pinking, and serging, to printing, backing, binding, and finishing.

VIPER™ Clear Frame™
At VIP, we listen and are continuously seeking innovative solutions and improvements for our customers. A prime example is our patented VIPER™ Clear Frame™ reinforcement backing. We observed that interior designers and consumers had difficulties envisioning a fabrics end use, be it sheers or upholstery, when the fabric was backed with paper frames. We noted that paper frames not only blocked the beauty of the fabric, it cracked, peeled and yellowed over time, making the fabric less desirable and reducing the usefulness of fabric books. So, we did something about it. We created VIPER™ Clear Frame™, a revolutionary, invisible, flexible edge reinforcement.
VIPER™ Clear Frame™ edge reinforcement delivers…
- A clean, virtually invisible reinforcement is not only preferred by designers, but converters, and mills.
- Tough, durable, flexible, reinforcement that won’t crack, peel, or yellow for the life of the book.
- ”A better hand” they feel the fabric, not the paper backing.
- A better quality book, that stays looking good, even after multiple uses…few or no bent corners, and no peeling papers.
- Great for sheers, silks, multi-purpose or upholstery.
In a national survey, 100% of interior designers preferred VIPER™ Clear Frame™ book over paper framed books.
VIPER™ Clear Frame™ has been enthusiastically adopted by many of the leading decorative jobbers, converters, mills and private label retailers.
