Book Design Pricing for a variety of Book Types and Genre.
Book design pricing questions are often discussed in conjunction with our fine book printing services. Of course authors want to get some idea or a firm price quote for the professional design of their book.
We emphasize ‘professional’, and we offer book design and book printing services.
Star Print Brokers doesn’t believe in ‘package’ offerings loaded with extra services that authors may not need or want. Nor do we believe in manufacturing print on-demand books, as they are simply inferior to our book production.
While you can always get a quote at Star Print Brokers by filling out our Request for Book Design form, we are offering authors some book design pricing examples. You can download the PDFs.
If your book happens to be 200 pages, or you expect your manuscript will yield 200 final pages in InDesign, then you have your quote! There is also book design pricing for a 24 page children’s picture book.
Book Design Pricing for a few basic book types
The costs quoted are for interior pages. Since the interior text pages can be bound as hardcover or soft cover, we’ve added options to choose from such as: covers, dust jacket, endpapers, and French flaps.
Children’s book, 24 pages, $408
Novel or soft cover paperback, 200 pages: $1,800
Process color book, Art book, Photography book, Coffee Table book, 200 pages, 100 images: $3,600
Cookbook, 200 pages, 100 images: $4,000
You may wonder why a 200 page, 100 image cookbook has a higher cost than another process color book with the same specifications. The reason is that there is much more formatting in the recipes themselves, and quite often a cookbook has charts. It all takes more time. All books are professionally designed using Adobe InDesign and Photoshop.
