Baker & Taylor PawPrints Transitioning to FollettBound


B&T, Follett to Offer Top Prebind Titles for School, Public Library Markets

Baker & Taylor® PawPrints prebinds, available to both the public library and school markets, will have a new look starting next week when the books begin transitioning to the FollettBound® brand. The move joins together the top prebind brands for customers in both markets.

George Coe, Group President of Baker & Taylor and Follett School Solutions, said the transition has been in the works since Follett acquired Baker & Taylor in April 2016.

"This is bringing together the best of breed in the book binding business," Coe said. "We are taking the great features of both prebinds to bring a superior product to the market. Our joint prebind offering is another example of how Follett and Baker & Taylor are offering leading services to our customers."

Coe outlined the many benefits of the transition, especially those realized by Baker & Taylor's public library customers. "Because of the depth of the FollettBound collection, we will ultimately be able to offer a greater number of titles that are already in stock. We can also offer faster turnaround times and enhanced ordering options."

PawPrints customers, Coe assured, will discover what FollettBound® customers have long been attracted to: quality, affordability and unconditional guarantees. Top FollettBound® specific features include:

  • Extended shelf life and unmatched durability;
  • Photo-quality color covers;
  • Acid-free polyester end sheets;
  • Polyester-laminated covers; and
  • Colorful, square-back spines

Moving forward, PawPrints' school customers will be able to order prebinds from Titlewave®, Follett's premier collection development and order platform for K-12 schools. Public library customers will still be able to ordering from Baker & Taylor® TitleSource 360 (TS 360), the company's state-of-the-art ordering system.
