Here is a list of standard book sizes that are manufactured in the UK. If you produce your book at a standard size then you are ensuring that it is printed in the most cost effective and efficient way.
However we do not insist that you stick to these sizes and can produce custom sizes (please choose the custom size option on our estimate request form).
Please note that if you are measuring a hardback book on your bookshelf then you need to measure the inner book block and not the outside of the case to find out the size that we would need to give you an estimate on.
