Are you looking for ways to set your book apart from the rest? You may want to consider a custom extra. While you won’t find these options in our Quote Generator, we do have standard pricing for extras like printed end sheets in hardcover editions, printing on the inside of perfect bound covers, and custom dies on cloth bound hardcovers.
Give us call (1-800-837-0970) or send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss pricing on your custom extra!
Printed End Sheets
Printed end sheets are a great way to bring your readers into the atmosphere of your hardcover book from the moment they open the cover. Our standard pricing includes white or off-white end sheets, selected to match your interior stock.
We’ve had some terrific projects come through the shop with printed end sheets, including a web comic anthology by Peter Donahue (right).
Pricing is based on the number of books you want to print AND the number of end sheets to be custom printed (there are two end sheets in each book, and some customers opt for one custom printed and one standard) as well as the orientation of your project (portrait or landscape). Have this information ready when you inquire.
Inside Cover Printing
Softcover books don’t have end sheets, but printing on the inside cover is possible. Pricing is based on the number of books in your order and, like the end sheets, the orientation of your book. This local history book by Anni Evans has an old map printed on the inside cover.
If you are interested in an image foil stamped on your cloth bound hardcover, or a specific font for your foil-stamped title and author name, you have the option of adding a custom die to your order. Custom dies start at $150 and increase in cost based on size and complexity. Simply submit a PDF of the true-to-size image you’d like cast as a die when you place your order and submit files.
Thomas Sawyer submitted an image of hands shuffling cards for his custom die.
