Hardcovers (aka hardback editions) are very popular for serious collectors and provide an impressive upgrade for minimal extra price. They're typically comic books that are 64 pages or larger and have a hardboard cover instead of cardstock. We can handle any size and any format, including landscape editions and art books. Dustcover options and slipcases are also available. Printing on the cover itself is also available and can even be combined with dustcovers and/or faux leather to create an impressive product.
A very popular option among our clients is to simultaneously create a hardcover edition of their tradepapers. This lowers the overall cost and is a very effective use of the printer, as the TEXT (aka interiors) is the same for both versions. This is perfect for signed/numbered editions.
You'll also be happy to know that we include a FREE Digital Proof and free shipping with all orders of at least 1000 units. Remember, this is just a press proof for use in checking pagination, crop marks, etc. Our final prints are ALL on the highest-quality professional offset presses.
