ColourBooks are a specialist book printer,
and as such our methods of working are specifically targetted at servicing the publishing industry. Our Sales Executives and Customer Service Executives are able to advise customers on the book format and materials which are best suited to their job, and we are often able to offer advice on sizes and materials which can achieve the desired result at the most cost effective price.

Book formats:
Popular and cost-effective formats of books produced by ColourBooks include the following (all dimensions are presented height first,
then width):

180 x 110 mm
198 x 129 mm ('B' format)
210 x 148 mm (A5)
216 x 138 mm (Demy octavo)
234 x 156 mm (Royal octavo)
240 x 170 mm (Pinched Crown 4to)
297 x 210 mm (A4)

These are a range of `standard' sizes - ColourBooks also regularly produce an array of non-standard size books.

Paper and board types:
ColourBooks holds a wide range of high-quality publishing papers in stock. This helps to minimise turnaround times and keep costs competitive. Book wove papers, offsets, cartridge, and matt and gloss coated artpapers in various grammages and shades are all readily available, and we are always able to source special papers and boards easily to meet any specific requirements.

Binding and delivery:
All cased and paperback bookbinding operations are performed by ColourBooks. Books can be sewn, perfect bound or saddle stitched. All books are shrink-wrapped, packed and palletised on-site to ensure safe and reliable deliveries with the minimum of fuss.

Run lengths:
ColourBooks run lengths vary from 500 copies up to 50,000 copies. However, we also produce high-quality limited edition print runs of under 500 books. Average run lenths would be between 1,000 and 10,000 copies.

Finishing:
A wide range of finishes to your books are avilable at ColourBooks, including lamination of covers and jackets, paperbacks with French flaps, foil blocking, embossing and debossing, to name just a few. If you have any special requirements we would be only too happy to discuss these with you and help you achieve the desired effect.
