Cover register runs 95-99%. Because of this, many collage type covers designed by authors don’t always come out as desired. We suggest that your background continue throughout all cover elements, leaving approximately .25″ between your outside photos/graphics and the “edge” of the cover. Otherwise, you could end up with important elements folding around the edge of your cover, and/or spilling onto the edge of your spine.
