What is a Self Cover?
Self Cover means that the exterior cover is printed on the same paper stock as on the interior pages.
For example, on a regular cover comic, the cover would be printed on a 70# glossy text stock and the interiors would be printed on a 50# matte text stock. But on a self cover comic there would be no difference in stocks. Both the covers and the interiors would be printed on the 50# text stock.
