Book Cover Dust Jackets

When considering the design of your book, don’t forget the dust jacket! Dust jackets are a key component in a bookshelf-worthy book, providing a chance to make a memorable first impression. Imagine the shelves at your favorite bookstore. Now picture the best-sellers — they’ve all got dust jackets! Dust jackets are removable, heavy paper covers that protect and display your book. We add two 3.5” flaps that wrap around the cover, holding the jacket in place and providing extra room for text and photos — the perfect space for an Author Bio or story synopsis.

Dust jacket options

The dust jacket is an opportunity to show off your book’s professional, unique look. Elevate yours with foil accents, textured paper, and full-color photography or illustrations.

Our dust jackets are printed beautifully on heavyweight, 100# Gloss Text paper, and laminated in either a glossy or matte finish. You can also add texture effects for a truly luxurious look:

Lamination: Choice of Silk or Hi-Gloss Laminate
Texture: Diamond 3D Clear, 3D Foil, or 3D Smart Textures
