Choosing The Successful Cookbook Printing Services

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, September 17, 2019

You are about to embark on a most exciting enterprise of your life, publishing your cookbook! You will soon learn that writing a cookbook is truly a fun, exciting and challenging project. Soon you must decide how to publish it. You’ll need to ask yourself some questions. What is your style? What is your genre? There is nothing like seeing your work in print for the very first time. Below are the following styles which you will decide on what your next masterpiece will look and create your unique book today.

  • Book cover styles. We offer both hardcover and softcover book options. There is a 24-page count minimum for our hard case bindings. Hardcover books can also be covered with a dust jacket, a removable paper cover used to protect a book from dirt or damage.
  • Standard Trim Sizes. Deciding which trim size will best suit your book can be confusing, especially given all the industry-standard but completely unhelpful trim size names, like US Trade and Digest. We have put together our genre recommendations, based on industry standards, to help you choose a trim size that makes it clear to the reader what they are buying.
  • Custom Book Binding Options. Whether you want a flexible perfect bound paperback or a sturdy hardcover, we offer the book binding options that give your book the look and feel you want.
  • Book Cover Finishes. Grab your reader's attention with a professionally designed book cover finished with a soft matte or polished gloss.
  • Interior text paper stock options. Your pages should look as good as the words written on them. The art of choosing the right paper stock is tricky, but it will ultimately define the feel and quality of your book, depending on your budget and production time. Uncoated paper stock has a rough, natural feel to it and is recommended for more traditional books without imagery. Coated paper stock reflects more light and has a slicker feel. It is a popular choice for photography, art, comic and children’s books.

In order to avoid wasting a great deal of time, back-tracking and scrambling to sell all those books, you must create the perfect combination with customizable binding styles, paper stocks and sizes, and quantities that will make your cookbook truly yours.

Bound Galleys Are Great In Every Way

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, September 10, 2019
Country Press Printing, Boston, MA

One of the most common questions that authors have is what will their print proofs look like? Today let’s discuss if bound galleys are right for you. Since a bound galley is the pre-publication version of your upcoming published book, the appearance will be that of a printed, perfect bound book. The cover of the bound galley is generally not the cover of the book to be published, but the bound galley cover contains information useful to marketing the book to reviewers, bookstore distributors and buyers. Comments from these reviewers are frequently printed on the back of the production (i.e. Bookstore) version of the book printed after the review stage.

A printed galley looks just like a book with a cover and book binding, except there is usually a notice on the front cover that reads "Uncorrected Bound Galleys. Not For Sale." Most galleys are printing while your book is with the proofreader, so they are expected to have a few errors. Take note that bound galley may contain handwritten editorial marks. It may be missing photographs, illustrations, charts, and even text that will, however, eventually appear in the final finished edition.

These are often not the same size the published book will be. The size of a bound galley is based on printing economics. Usually they are 5 3/8" x 8 3/8" and frequently are 6" x 9". Other formatted bound galleys such as oblong bindings or odd sizes are available and are used. Bound galleys are printed on specially designed printing presses. The physical appearance of the bound galley is distinctive, and reviewers can readily distinguish a bound galley from a finished book.

It is certainly our experience that readers pay attention to books that have been endorsed by people who are famous and those highly respected personalities. As such preparing bound galleys is really an advantage.

Very thick books cannot be bound securely by stapling or fastened using saddle-stitch. But there is a perfect bound book method that works perfectly for book binding for projects with up to 700 printed pages.
