Spine Printing Under the Dust Jacket

Does Blurb simply not have printing on the spine of the book under the dust jacket?

This seems very unprofessional since the book is unidentified without the dust jacket.

I’d say that I agree on that….would be a nice perk.

I agree.  It is extra expense to find a binder to do this after the fact.

Blurb, are you planning to add the ability to print on a hardcover’s spine in the future?

Printing on the spine of the book is on every bookstore purchased book that I own.  Without it Blurb cannot honestly use the "bookstore quality books" tag line.

Just bumping this to the top, because I’d also like to hear from the moderators on this issue …

As you can all imagine, we get a lot of suggestions. Because we can’t offer everything everyone wants all at once, we go through a very rigorous process that moves items up or down the list of priorities. That said, we’ve gotten several suggestions for hardcover case spine printing and it’s been added to our list of items to look at.

Thanks and keep those suggestions coming.
