Book Sizes

What size should my book be?  Do you do odd sizes?
We print our books in several distinct sizes (all sizes in inches unless noted):

4.25 x 6.876: This is a good size for mass market fiction books or if you want your book to fit in your pocket!

4.25 x 7: Another mass market fiction book that is a little bit taller in size, but will still fit in your pocket!

5.25 x 8.25: This is a good size for a standard shelf-sized trade paperback book.  You will see this size book in your local bookstore mostly in the fiction section, but sometimes in the nonfiction as well.

5.5 x 8.5: A condensed digest-sized fiction or nonfiction book, but most commonly seen as a fiction book.

9 x 6: This is a common novel size used for US trade paperbacks.  You will see this size book in your local bookstore mostly as a nonfiction book, but it can be used for fiction if you like a little more book in your hand!

8.5 x 11: This size is known as a “standard catalog” size and it can be used for any of your big book needs such as: Greek tragedies, wartime anthologies, coffee table collectibles, family histories or Trojan horses!

Special sizes:  Do you fancy squares over rectangles?  Is there a special comic book or graphic novel you want in a double-sized print edition?  Do you want your book to fit inside your shirt or coat pocket?  Are our sizes too small for you?  Did I ask too many questions not related to the size your book should be in?  Ask us about our special sizes.  We will do our best to get your book the size you want it!
