We designed a sleeve for the WatchMen so that it lines up with the graphics on the cover.  

The drop of blood was separately printed in red PLA so we could avoid having to paint the sleeve and to add depth to the artwork. Additional parts can be layered on top with adhesives or double sided tape. 

You can edit the dimensions along with any creative details to really customize your books!
