Hardcover Book Design Tips

The first, the book’s cover design is very important. Before you design the cover, please contact our specialist for support. Our designer will do a cover design template for you. Let us know your book size, page count, interior paper and etc. We will calculate the book spine thickness for you. Since the cover is wrapped on a board material, it will be thicker than the book’s interior pages.  Thus, the cover image or background should extend at least 10mm. So, you design the cover according to our cover template is better. 

The second, the interior artwork design is same as regular book design. The hardcover book is sewn to allow the interior pages to be opened flat.  Photos overlapping from one page to another are also available.

The last, some people like dust jacket for their hardcover book. Before you design a dust jacket, please contact us. Our designer will create a dust jacket template for you to view. The regular dust jacket flap is around 90mm width.

Hardcover Book Printing and Binding Tips

The first, the cover material is paper or vinyl or cloth. If the cover material is vinyl or cloth, you can’t design with color printing. You may choose foil stamping or embossing on the surface. For color printing cover, it should be regular coated white paper. You also can select foil stamping, spot UV, embossing on the surface.

The second, the end sheets are connected with board and interior pages. Each hardcover book should have a front end sheet and a back end sheet. 140gsm uncoated paper is good for creating end sheets.  If the book is large size, or they are more than 320 pages, 170gsm uncoated paper for doing the end sheets is better.
If you like the shiny color printing on your end sheets, 157gsm matte art paper is available. We also have many color papers for you to choose from.
