You can build your book from a range of sizes, color options, and paper types. Use our handy tables to predict your book cost, and guide your decision-making.

Binding types

  • Paperback is perfect binding. The pages and cover are glued to the spine.

  • Hardcover is dust jacket (cover design is printed onto a removable jacket) or case wrap (the cover is printed and pasted to the cover boards).

Costs

Work out your book cost, based on its actual page count or an estimate. Then, use your book cost to decide your prices and royalty. More on that here →

You can only know your final page count once your book has been fully prepared.

How the tables work. Costs inside the table are for 24 pages. Use the cost for 24 pages plus the amount for each additional page to find your retail cost estimate.

  • Example: A 32-page Premium Color 8×10 Case Wrap book costs $10.08 each.
