I've tended to find it isn't the height that causes the issues with slipcases (I'm a pretty accurate folder and never use the dotted lines!), it is the width when the books are pretty right to begin with. e.g. the 1st edition Companion and Guide fitted protectors fine, but the 2nd edition looked too tight (so I didn't try).

All dust jackets that aren’t in a slipcase get covered. I have done some slipcased ones but most are too tight, as Stu says.

Brodart tends to be the suggested solution, they have a PDF on how to use their product on the website http://www.shopbrodart.com/_resources ... es/PDF/2017_BJC_Guide.pdf

Any thoughts on Demco book covers? I watched this video and it seems pretty straightforward. Since I yet have to start protecting all my books, straightforwardness is something I value.

I had some Demco covers a few years ago. They were just the same as Brodart, basically. I also had some Australian ones called Unifold, I think. Basically all variations of the same thing, and none of them hard to use. I always buy the rolls of whatever product I am using, but the process of fitting any of these is basically identical.
