Edge Printing

We're so excited to announce our new book edge printing service! This is an exclusive service not offered by most printing companies, and is something many authors have been DIY-ing. Now, you can stay on trend but save time (our specialty!) and let 48 Hour Books handle the work.

Create a collector's edition or limited edition of your book with our stunning full-color Edge Printing! It's all part of the premium printing services we offer.

Your Bookshelf Will Never Look Better

With our full-color book edge printing, you can get the look of a book with custom sprayed edges without the added hassle of doing it yourself. You can create a fully custom design for the cut edges of your book and your readers will be wowed by a stunning, limited-edition book. Edge Printing will be available soon for all of our clients, but is currently offered on a limited basis for hardcover books only.
