Hardcover Book Foil Stamping

Custom foil stamping gives your book an elegant look

Book1One offers three cover options for hardcover books: a full-color printed cover wrap, a cloth cover with or without foil stamping, and a faux (imitation) leather cover with or without foil stamping. If your cover is to have a full-color cover wrap, you will need to design your front cover, back cover and spine, and use our hardcover sizing diagram to ensure that your cover will properly fit your book.

If you choose either a cloth or faux leather cover with foil stamping and your stamping involves basic text and numbers (such as book title, author's name, date, etc.), it will not be necessary for you to create a "formal" cover design for your book. Therefore, you would not need to use the cover sizing diagram.

Instead, to create your cover file for uploading purposes, simply create a black and white only PDF file of your front cover in the page size equal to your text page size and position the text (and numbers) where you would like them foil stamped on your front cover. If you would like stamping done on your spine, after you upload your cover file, in the "Special Instructions" box, note what you would like stamped on the spine and if you want it right justified, left justified or centered. From this information, we will assemble your complete cover and fit and stamp your text using Times New Roman font.

Two lines of text on the front cover and spine is covered under our standard foil stamping service. See example of supplied PDF below.

In many instances, we can foil stamp additional lines of text, an image such as an insignia, or custom fonts on your cover as well based on your supplied PDF. A one-time additional charge would be necessary to cover the cost of producing a special die to accommodate the additional stamping. See example of supplied PDF below.

Cloth and faux leather coverings are available in any of four colors: black, navy blue, dark red and green. Foil stamping is available in either a gold or silver.

I just received my book order of an early 1900's scrapbook replica you printed for me - and it is perfect! I can't wait to show it to my client and display it at a networking show next month. Many thanks for a great job.

I am a designer who has ordered several low-volume books for my clients from Book1One over the last few years and have been extremely pleased with the quality as well as the customer service. I have created both hard cover and soft cover books, and the website has useful templates for formatting the book layout so everything comes together seamlessly. I also love the instant quote generator on the website, it helps to see how the different options impact the pricing without having to go back and forth with an estimator or sales rep. I will definitely keep using Book1One!
