We want to hear all of the questions you may have about our custom book manufacturing process. Here are a few that you may want to think about before contacting us.• Would you like your book to be a hard cover (clothbound) book or softcover (paperback)? Hard cover will be somewhat more expensive than paperback.
• Is your book color or black and white? Do you have color photos or images? Color is also more expensive.
• What are the dimensions? Standard sizes are 6x9, 7x10, 8.5x11, and 9x12. We can do other sizes as well but these are simply the most economical. Unusual sizes such as a square book will be a bit more costly.
• What is the page count?
• How many copies would you like printed? It will cost you more to print more but the cost per unit will go down. When considering quantity, you want to think of how many you can sell on your own to people who are not your friends and family. Give us three quantities so you can see the price breaks.
