Hardcover Publishing


For durability and class, our black & white hardcover publishing is available in your choice of two formats: glossy casebound or dust jacket. The casebound option features a full-color glossy cover image adhered directly to the cover. The dust jacket option features a blue digital cloth cover with a digitally printed non-metallic gold-colored ink onto the spine and a full-color dust jacket with flaps. The full-color dust jacket allows us to print your author biography and a description of your book on the inside flaps, freeing up the back cover to print reviews and endorsements. Your hardcover edition will also be assigned a unique ISBN. In addition to the paperback copies included in your publishing package, you will receive one free author copy of your hardcover edition.
