Headbands/Footbands

These are narrow strips of cloth either sewn or glued to the top (headband) or the

bottom (footband) of the book’s spine to add a finishing touch.





Foil Stamping


Foil Stamping


Foil (often metallic, black, or white) is applied to the cover or spine using a 

heated die, leaving behind the design of your choosing.





French Flaps

Similar to a dust jacket but for softcover books, French flaps are a great place to

include praise for your work.





Embossing

This is the process of creating a raised effect on the cover of a paperback book

or dust jacket. Embossing can be used either for emphasis (e.g., raising the title) 

or texture (pictured above).



Colored End Sheets
