Dustjacket Printing

Whether you are producing a cloth bound hard cover or even in some cases, a printed hard cover, you may want the additional option of a printed, laminated dust jacket. 

Standard Dust Jacket specifications: 
4 color printing on 65 lb coated cover stock with option of Gloss/Matte or Soft Touch Matte film lamination. Flaps are typically scored with a 3.5″ width. We can send you a dust jacket and hardcover template diagram if you are planning on adding a dust jacket to your book project!

Do you offer special finishing techniques?
We are able to offer some extra techniques such as foil stamping overprinting, spot UV coating ( over a soft touch or matte lamination). Let us know what you are looking for!
