Calculating Cost

We provide your one time set up fees up-front, so you can figure your costs before any work is started. There are no extra or hidden charges. 

Our one time set up fees are for press-ready pdf files using perfect binding. If additional services are needed, we will provide a quote prior to printing your book. 

The minimum number of pages required to print a book is 24 pages. We define a page as one side of a sheet of paper.

You can calculate your book printing cost based on the fee structure below:
