Cover Personalization Space Requirements

When designing a cover, don’t forget to leave space for personalization. Check out our Cover Personalization Guide

It's important to leave a small buffer area around all edges of the dimensions listed below, so that the design isn't "touching" the personalization. That buffer area is a design preference and up to you and your staff on how much space you leave.
