    How many pages of the total are to be printed in colour?

    Paper Choice for Book Insides
    Our standard paper for books is a smooth, bright white, 60lb paper, excellent for text and photos, most cost-effective. For very long books, consider a thinner 50lb paper to reduce shipping weight. For best quality reproduction of photographs or illustrations, consider the 80lb or 100lb coated papers, which are smooth and show colours brilliantly.

    Cover Options

    Cover Weight - Soft Cover only

    Cover Lamination provides a thin, durable coating that protects the cover from scratches. Gloss laminate will bring out colours; consider a matte laminate for a modern, less-reflective finish.(Matte lam is approximately 50 cents per book more than glossy lam)

    Do you require an ISBN (International Standard Book Number) for this book?
    An ISBN and barcode are included in the print costs of the book.
