Make your cover and title page special:

In today’s world where it is fairly easy to “typeset” on the computer, don’t settle for only text on your book cover.  While some binding types don’t economically lend themselves to anything but text, with the right budget or the type of binding to best fit your expectations, the sky is the limit.  We suggest utilizing different fonts, and/or adding dingbats/wingdings as decorative “bullets”, clip art, drawings, photos, backgrounds and/or borders to your cover (again not all of these elements can be used on all bindings).  If a special cover layout is put together, it is also nice to match to some extent the title page.  The title page may match with font and layout, but drop border, background, and other graphic elements.

We usually recommend the use of a typeset title page for all books, as it adds to the pleasing appearance of any book. A title page may contain a photo or artwork, if you wish. We do, however, occasionally have a customer that specifies the use of his own title page, which is fine.
