Each book is unique and deserves a unique die for the cloth or imitation leather covers. Every cover will have a custom copper die that will be made for stamping of both the front cover and spine. You may follow the Hardcover Stamping instructions and submit a PDF die mockup or we can create one for you using your title pages. Dies can be stamped in our standard gold, silver, or white foil. If you are looking for a custom foil color or have questions about your die, Contact Us about your book.
We offer 11 standard colors (see below). Colors below are approximate and may appear different on your final books. The vellum fabrics are solid, while the linens have a subtle linen texture.
We offer 5 standard colors to choose from (see below). Imitation leather costs about 90¢ more per book than the standard fabrics shown above. Colors below are approximate and may appear different on your final books. Imitation leather has a marbled texture.

Working with Gorham has been simply the best experience for which I could have hoped. It’s my wish that all authors can have the same moment of overwhelming elation when they open a box of their own hardbound books.
This is the third book that Gorham Printing has printed for us. It's of the highest quality and our customers were very impressed. This was our first hardcover book and the binding, paper, and colors are outstanding.
