Introducing Jacketed Case Laminate!
We’re excited to announce a new product offering that allows you more flexibility and creative freedom. Authors and publishers working with Ingram can now upload a file of their choosing to print directly on the book underneath the jacket. Where Ingram has traditionally only offered blue and grey options for jacketed hardcovers, you can now upload an additional file, designed by you, in place of the blue or grey options still available.
You can upload the current design on your book jacket to print on the book underneath so that the two match, which is what we’ve done here. For readers who remove a hardcover book’s jacket while reading, this allows your book’s cover to still be visible to prospective readers once the jacket has been removed.
You can switch it up and upload a file of a solid color of your choosing. The beauty of uploading your own designed file for the book itself allows you to customize whatever appears on the book underneath, including the spine. You no longer have to rely on formatted spine stamping, but can use your own font and include your publishing imprint’s logo if you’d like.
This offering is available at an additional charge and in limited trim sizes at the moment.
Trim sizes currently included are:
5 x 8" (203 x 127mm)
5.5 x 8.5" (216 x 140mm)
6 x 9" (229 x 152mm)
6.14 x 9.21" (234 x 156mm)
At the time of title setup, when choosing your print format, simply select the Jacketed Case Laminate option underneath the hardcover binding type.
