Dust jackets, or book jackets, protect the hardcover case of casebound books and can be an art form all their own. Dust jackets are printed on heavier weight text paper, and are finished with either a gloss or a matte lamination. Dust jackets flaps are a perfect place to print information about the author, a summary or even reviews. The jacket is a unique specialty feature because it is an opportunity to provide the reader with another piece of art, other than what is found on your cover.
Cloth and Faux Leather Covers
Cloth and faux leather covers add an element of luxury beneath your dust jacket. Pair this with specialty options like foil stamping and embossing or debossing and you’ll have one beautiful book! Please note: Due to the variations inherent in the dyeing process, the fabric and leather colors and textures will vary between print runs.
Rounded and Square Backed (Standard) Case Binding
A rounded and backed case binding gives your spine a classic rounded shape. Rounded spines are an aesthetic choice that can give your book a classical old world look and feel. Please note: The rounded spine area will be about 1-2mm wider than the standard spine width, so design accordingly.
