Does anyone on here have a link or tutorial/software  for cover printing. I have tried to print manually but the covers always seem to have an alignment problem or are either too large or too small. Very frustating and a waste of expensive ink. I would like to print the 14mm spine cover. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

It probably depends on your printer and printer/photoshop software as to how accurate the print size is going to be. With me it's unfortunately been a case of print it, measure it, adjust the print size percentage, print it, measure it, adjust again etc etc until it's exactly right, then save those settings.

You could try just black and white printing a simple line template like this...

...then rising it, printing again, resizing etc until it's right. Then you'll minimize ink waste and have a template you can create your covers on that will always print correct.... until you get a new printer ;) .

Really late to this thread, but I need some help for making some custom cover art.
