When walking down the New Releases aisle of your local bookstore or library, you may notice something -- all of the hardcover (also known as “casebound“) books have a dust jacket, a removable laminated cover that wraps around the existing cover of the book. With 48 Hour Books, your casebound books can have beautifully-printed, full-color dust jackets.
In addition to providing protection to the cover of your book, our dust jackets include two 3.5 inch flaps that wrap inside the book, allowing for additional printing space. This space can be used for any number of things, such as a book summary or an About the Author section. You also have the option to add any of our Diamond 3D Cover Coatings to your dust jacket to really make it pop. An excellent addition to any casebound book, a dust jacket protector can give your book the polished and professional feel of all of the New Releases.
Most hard cover books have full-color dust jackets to protect the cover, and serve as a bookmark for your readers. We print dust jackets in full-color on 100# Gloss Text, then laminate them with your choice of Silk Laminate or Hi-Gloss Laminate.
On the flaps, you can add an 'About the Author' section, a few quick quotes from book reviewers, or maybe a teaser or synopsis of your book.
