Padded Covers

What are padded covers? Are they right for your book project?

padded book cover

To give your book some extra heft, we can build a cover that incorporates a thin layer of foam padding between layers of soft cardstock. This gives a plusher, heavier feel and protects the cover from minor dings and dents – making it a great option for children’s books, letting them withstand even the toughest of playdates. Not only is this option is perfect for giving a softer feel to children’s books, padded covers can also be used for adding protection to cookbooks, photobooks, or any other type of project that will see heavy use.


Request pricing for this add-on while locking in your price on our quoting calculator. We’ll reach out to you with a custom quote (or questions) within 1 business day of receiving your request. Of course, if you’re not sure if this option is right for you, feel free to ask us! Just reach out to one of our friendly customer service Ninjas, and they’ll gladly help you determine if this option is right for your book project.

Please note: this option can only be applied to casebound hardcover books.
