Jacket for Hardcover Design
A hardcover book with a Dust Jacket is usually a hardcover book lined with black fabric and wrapped with a paper cover in color.
Self-publishers like the flexibility of this basic hardcover book design package because it combines some do-it-yourself elements with limited designer contact. This is a particularly good choice if you have a definite idea of what image you are looking for and don't mind spending a little time researching it.

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 PublishingUS.com 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.
