Printing in Color

If your book contains color photos, all you do is select color printing and tell us how many pages are in color during the order process. Please remember that with color you will generate a very large file. A broadband internet connection (fast connection) is necessary due to the size of the file.

Color book printing is a little more difficult in setting up your book files, as you will need to make sure the images you will be using are 300 dpi in resolution.

Four Types of Paper—

We offer Four types of paper for color printing— the 80# Lustro High Gloss Enamel paper, 80# White Matte paper (dull, non-glossy), 100# Lustro High Gloss Enamel paper and the C2S card stock. The 80# paper is the standard paper for color print, but customers wanting a little thicker paper can choose the 100# paper. For the ultimate thickness, C2S Card stock is available, but this option is only available for spiral types of bindings.


Already an industry leader in Print On Demand services for black and white printing, InstantPublisher is one of the first POD publishers to offer full color book publishing at a reasonable cost. This innovative process allows authors to add full color photos to their text pages or have full color on every page.

Schools can design their own annuals in full color, load to the InstantPublisherColor site and have professionally printed annuals at a very reasonable price with a turn-around from 10-15 days.

Families can design their own photo albums, color and black and white, load to the site and actually have a photo album for each member of the family, less expensively than having reprints made by a photofinisher. Authors can write and design children's books in full color and bound for professional sales.
