The book sizes listed below are rounded measurements. If you’re creating collateral pieces (like custom envelopes) to go with your finished book, please refer to the chart below. You can find additional information on trim and bleed at the bottom of the page.

We are available to talk you through the specifications or you may engage the services of a graphics editor to create your print-ready file in one of the specification options. We also offer this service.

Additional Trim and Bleed Information

Page trim: These measurements show final trimmed page sizes. The printer takes approximately 3.175 mm off the top, bottom, and outside edge (face) of an untrimmed page to produce the trimmed page size. Variations of up to 3.175mm can occur from printer to printer to aid in binding, so please keep critical content at least 6.35 mm away from final trim sizes.

Bleed: Images can bleed off the page, but please be mindful that trim is not always exact (as this is a custom manufacturing process). If you’re designing your own pages in InDesign or Photoshop, please be sure to keep critical content—images and text—at least 6.35 cm away from final trim sizes and at least 25 mm from your book’s edges for Printed on Gloss/Matt Laminate covers.
