Creating the book you want
After you’ve invested so much time writing your manuscript just the way you want it, the final book should be exactly the same. We offer several types of book.When we design the book's front cover, the book's title, subtitle (if applicable), author name, and any additional information will be included, along with all graphics needed to create the cover artwork. If you have ideas and sample graphics or even complete cover design that you would like our design team to use or incorporate, please let us know.
Our designers will work with you to produce a book that is every bit as professional as any in bookstores. In a industry standard format of 140 by 216 mm, or 5.5" by 8.5", this book takes advantage of the latest print technologies, making it extremely affordable. All of our softcover books are trade paperbacks.
Our hard cover books feature either a durable 4 colour case laminate cover or cloth binding (blue or grey), an embossed spine and a full colour dust jacket. Your hard cover edition will be assigned a unique ISBN.
Our standard page size for hard cover books is 216 x 140 mm or 8.5 x 5.5 inches. Other formats can be accommodated, please contact us for details.
