How to Put on Dust Jackets

  1. Open your package and leave your new dust jackets under heavy books for several hours.
  2. Once your dust jackets are flat, they are ready to wrap on the books. Always wrap the spine first! The easiest way to do this is by gripping the book in one hand pinning the paper around the spine with the other hand.
  3. Next, face the spine towards the floor and lay the book on a table or pin it in between your legs with the flaps of paper in the air.
  4. Fold the edges of your dust jackets around the case of your book. This will be loose at first!
  5. Now, put your books on a bookshelf and make sure they are tightly wedged between other books or under a heavy object on a flat surface.
  6. Come back several hours later and tighten your dust jackets around the edges of your book.
  7. Enjoy your new items!
