Casewrap Hardcover Book Design 


Casewrap for Hardcover Design.jpg


A hardcover book with a casewrap is usually a color printed hardcover book with a laminated, glossy finish. The extra protection of a casewrap is popular with children's books as well as cook books, art books, and manuals. The casewrap provides extra protection.

In addition to a printed casewrap, self-publishers sometimes prefer a separate jacket to make their book complete. The choice is yours. At SelfPublishingUS, we are here to help you every step of the way. 

Hardcover Casewrap Package Includes:

  • Consultation with Graphic Designer to establish general book layout, graphic design and type faces.

  • 24 or 32 pages of text layout from your MS Word manuscript, and original scanned or digital artwork.

  • Scanning of original artwork, if necessary (up to16 scans)

  • Creation of casewrap

  • Creation of title, copyright, dedication, and author bio pages

  • Layout text, combine with illustrations

  • Design single color endpapers for offset printing

  • PDF proof for approval

  • 1 round of corrections (up to 25 corrections)

  • Final PDF proof for approval prior to sending files to printer*

A hardcover book should have either a casewrap or a dust jacket.

Here at Self PublishingUS, we communicate to you on the progress of any job via phone or email. 


We expect you to do your part in supplying us with a finalized manuscript and no author should expect to continue “tweeking’ the text after the book has been laid out. However, it is understandable that once the interior has been designed that the author may catch some things they did not see before. That is why we allow one round of up to twenty-five free corrections for items like misspellings, punctuation changes, or grammar issues. Additional rounds come with a $45 file opening cost plus $1.50 for each correction.


The above does NOT include wholesale changes like switching out or adding images, removing or adding in paragraphs, or any style changes. Such alterations are not considered corrections but fall into the category of additional graphic design work which will be charged on a $90 an hour basis.


*NOTE: Our Design Service is offered exclusively to author/publishers who print books with Self No print ready files will be sent to customer until after books are printed. Once books are printed, you can request a copy of the print ready PDF files. Complete application files are also available after books are printed for an additional $149.
