Re: Custom Hardcovers

No, the dustjackets are printed on a thick, semi-gloss paper. None of the foil stamps would show through. Much like the HC's you purchase, most have some kind of design or writing underneath the dustjacket. I haven't decided which would look best. Just for my taste, I like the look of the foil logos...

I've been a lurker for a few months, and I've ordered the first two HCs of the material you guys are beautifully coloring. Jamar encouraged me to join BFTB, so here I a...
