Children’s Book Printing
API offers Commercial quality children’s book printing at a fraction of the price
We’re in the midst of a self-publishing revolution, as every day more children’s book writers and illustrators are choosing to print their own books and forego the traditional publishing houses entirely. Self-publishing gives creators the freedom and creative control they crave, but it also brings new challenges, which we can help you solve.
Knowing Your Options for Printing a Children’s Book
There are several options available for children’s book printing, and you’ll need the following information to help you decide how your book will be produced:
Choice 1: Case Bound or Perfect Bound
Do you want a hardcover children’s book (case bound) or a softcover (perfect bound). Case bound books have a printed cover printed on the board of the book and then coated with a glossy or matte finish, while Perfect Bound books have the cover printed on paper, which is then coated to give it a glossy or matte finish. This coating will also make the book’s cover more durable when handled by children.
Choice 2: Size
In general, the children’s books tend to be larger than novels, so 8.5×8.5 and 8.5×11 are popular sizes. Many children’s books are also printed in landscape format so they are wider than they are tall, though this is usually more expensive. We can print nearly any size; so feel free to contact us with sizing questions.
Choice 3: Paper Type
Since most children’s books contain colorful photos that look more brilliant when printed on coated paper. Please feel free to contact us to discuss the many paper options we have available.
