I've managed to print a couple of dust jackets from images grabbed from the web (books-for-sale ads mainly). And I once bought two AR jackets on their own from, I think, Nauticalia UK -- but regrettably it seems that they no longer provide them.
A3 printing means no seam, but even then the paper's not long enough to provide proper end-flaps. I just made do.
At the price you mention you should be able to buy the whole book, not just the dj; but comme ši, comme ša -- if you really want them and that's the only source, then I guess that's what you pay. Maybe you can negotiate a bulk discount somehow?
The problem I found, both with purchased ones and with ones I printed myself, was that they looked too new for the books they were going on, and I actually printed a sepia wash over the ones I did for myself to get past that.
Please let us know how you get on.
