The 2021 Porchlight Business Book Awards longlist is here!

Providing a customized copy of a book is a great way to stand out and leave a lasting impression. We can add sponsor or presenter logos for a conference, a quote pulled from the book that speaks to the goals of a specific team, an author signature, or a personalized note to leave a lasting impression.

Have something else in mind? Give us a call, and we’ll make it happen. We’re a small and flexible company perfectly suited to execute one-off projects. The customization possibilities are nearly endless.

Tip-in Pages

A page cut and bound into the front of the book with an author signature, company logo, a quote from the book you want to highlight, or any other message you want to send your audience.

Book Bands

A thick, card stock band scored to wrap around the outside of the dust jacket for sponsor logos, information about an event, or other details.

Cover Stickers

Add a sticker to highlight a book’s bestseller status, the reading group it’s being used for, or the logo of the company gifting the book, with non-permanent adhesive that is safe on dust jackets.


A self-adhesive square or rectangle that is stuck inside the book, commonly on the endpaper inside the front cover. Great for author signatures.

Custom Inserts

We can add a bookmark, letter from the author and person gifting the book, a DVD, or other training material into the book before it ships.

The Porchlight team don't just believe in books—they are passionate about bringing the ideas in them to the readers that authors want to impact. Their dedication and years of experience supporting authors to spread their ideas manifest in the form of stellar editorials, targeted promotion and sales logistics. If you're looking for support to launch or share your book with the world, Porchlight will help you navigate that journey.

Book Customization

  • Can I put my company’s logo on my books?

    Yes! We have a variety of standard customization options available to help get your branding on or into the books you are buying. And if none of those options suit your needs, we’ll work with you to create something that works for your specific project.

  • How long will it take to customize my books?

    Custom orders have a minimum lead time of three weeks from order placement to delivery. Actual turnaround time depends on the customization, quantity, and production details of your particular project.

  • Do you have designers to help me bring my customization project to life?

    Yes, we do. Design services are available for $125 per customization. You simply supply the imagery (logos or other graphic elements) and copy, and our in-house designer will create three original concepts for your consideration. Once you have selected a design concept, you have three rounds of revisions available. We will also happily accept your organization’s style guidelines at the beginning of the process so we can create something that meets all your organization’s criteria.

  • I have an idea that I don’t see on your price list; do you do any other customizations?

    Yes, we love trying something new! If you have an idea for customizing a book, get in touch and we’ll make sure we know exactly what you’re looking for; we can then provide pricing and turnaround time.

  • If I provide my own printed collateral, can you include or use this to customize my books?

    Yes, we can. Depending on the circumstances of your book order, there may be a small handling fee associated with using your own collateral.

  • Can I return customized books?

    Unfortunately, no. The personalized nature of customized books means they cannot be restocked or resold to other customers.
