Cloth book covers

Give your readers a different kind of reading experience with a cloth-bound book. With foil-stamping and debossing available, we'll give your publication a premium look that will last.

 

Cloth covers

Cloth cover book printing was commonplace in the 1800s. Nowadays, they hold a sense of tradition and prestige, making these books perfect for special editions of regular Hardcover Books.

And creating a print-ready file for a cloth cover book is simple. Our cloth covers are available in a wide range of rich colours, so you can coordinate your book dust jacket design with a choice of foiling options.

Foiling

Because of their specific texture, we cannot print on cloth covers. Instead, we use foil stamping to deboss lettering, logos and designs onto the book cover.

To achieve this effect, you will need to supply a separate casebound cover artwork file with the areas for foiling marked out. Follow this guide to find out how to create foiling artwork files.

Dust jackets

Dust jackets can truly elevate your book's presentation. Book cover designers often like elements of their book design to continue from the dust jacket onto the cloth cover of their book in foil. Design features could include lettering, logos and graphics.

We print dust jackets on matt or gloss paper on a single sheet so the flaps can wrap around your book cover. The folding flaps also provide extra space for you to include more information about your publication.
