It’s Never Been Easier or Most Cost-Effective to Print Your Paperback Book
Once we receive your files, we preflight your artwork and perform a quality check. Our preflight process will alert you to any issues. Examples of common ones include missing font specs, low-resolution images, or oversize text. While the responsibility is ultimately yours, we provide the soft proofing process to flag many common errors. Lastly, you’ll receive a hard copy proof before the print run begins.
Our production experts are available to discuss the optimal trim size for your book, and you may decide based on aesthetics. For example, we’ve all heard the phrase coffee table book referring to photo-heavy titles that show art and imagery – so there are genres that dictate book size. But it also depends on the audience and uses for your book; for example, in stores, it needs to fit next to others on the shelves.
5.5″ x 8.5″ or 6″ x 9″
Fiction and non-fiction trade paperbacks; training books, manuals, catalogs, annual reports, magazines
7″ x 10 ” or 8.5” x 11”
Photo books, journals, calendars, some catalogs, and magazines
9” x 7” or 11” x 8.5”
Elegant art & photography tabletop books and children’s books.
Your book’s content and how it fits within the pages also can affect the trim size. If your word count is not long, you may do better with a smaller 5.5″ x 8.5″ trim size so that the spine ends up wide enough to print the titles and your name as the author. These are the details you can discuss with us to help you make the best decision. They’re all part of the support you receive when printing with us.
