We can produce a variety of book sizes for you. Whichever size you choose, a proof copy will have to be purchased from the Print On Demand (POD) company. We offer the following sizes of perfect bound paperback:
- A5 (the most popular)
- 6in x 9in
- 5.25in x 8in
- Royal (15.6cm x 23.4cm)
- Crown Quarto (18.9cm x 24.6cm)
- Pocket size (10.8cm x 17.5cm)
The printing cost of your book will vary in relation to the sizes. Generally, the more pages a book has, the higher the cost. Images (especially colour) can also increase the cost of a book.
We can format to the correct size for you, all we need is one Word document (usually A4 or sized to A5). Once your book is with us we re-size, set-up margins, page breaks, section breaks, page numbers etc. We also create a copyright page, add the ISBN from the POD company or one you supply.
If there are mistakes, edits or errors which weren’t spotted by yourself prior to agreeing the project completed, a second proof copy may need to be purchased and so on. So our advice is to check very carefully before agreeing on the final draft of your work. A good idea is to have someone else read over your work before submitting as a ‘fresh pair of eyes’ often sees mistakes you would otherwise miss.
