Hardcover Colour Publishing


Our hardcover books are available in glossy casebound which features a full-colour glossy cover image adhered directly to the cover. Your hardcover edition will also be assigned a unique ISBN.

Additional information about hardcover colour publishing:

  • The hardcover colour format requires a page count range of 24-480.
  • Our colour hardcover books are only available in this trim size:
    • 8.5” × 11” 
  • When publishing a hardcover colour book, the softcover trim size must match that of the hardcover.
  • During book production, you will be given the opportunity to proof both the softcover and hardcover editions of your cover and suggest changes as appropriate.

Please note: Due to the higher production costs, the retail price for hardcover books can be more than softcover books. The delivery time for hardcover book orders is about seven days longer than for softcover books.
