Printed covers for hard cover books are printed in full color. Faux leather and cloth coverings can be foil stamped in either gold or silver foil on the front cover and spine if desired. If foil stamping is selected, our pricing will include two lines of standard type on the cover and basic text on the spine. Logos, special designs or images can be stamped on the cover for an additional charge that would be based on the size of the image.
Endleaves are what hold the book block (pages) to the cover of a hard cover book. They are uncoated sheets of paper (offered in either black or white) that are fully pasted to the inside of the front and back cover and are glued to the binding edge of the first and last page of the text.
Covers for soft cover and plastic coil books are printed in full color on 100# cover stock.
Covers for saddle stitch books are printed in full color on either a self-cover (same paper weight as internal pages) or 100# cover stock.
Portrait orientation refers to books where the binding is done on the longer page dimension. Landscape orientation refers to books where the binding is done on the shorter page dimension.
