Pricing Information for Book Publishing
This screen will allow you to configure a self publishing cost. The cost of your book is computed based on several factors, including: whether it contains color pages, number of pages, number of books ordered, cover material, and binding style, etc. At the time you place your actual order, you will be given a cost based on the options you have selected for your book, which should agree with the cost estimate produced here.
To see pricing based on a sample order, select the appropriate options. You can change options and recalculate as many times as you want for your self publishing cost.

In order to ensure that we produce
enough books to completely fill orders, we always print a few more than the
ordered quantity. This is necessary because books are sometimes damaged and
discarded during the printing and binding process. If we do have extra books
left beyond your original order quantity, would you like to purchase these
extras at one-half the per-book cost of your ordered books (For example, if your
order computes to $5.00 per book, the extra books would be sold to you for $2.50
per book and would be automatically shipped with your order.)?
Please note that this offer is a one-time offer per order and the quantity
offered will never exceed 10 books.
Instantpublisher provides 4 standard
book sizes; however, if you want to order a custom size or the book has full
bleeds on some pages, please enter the Final Trim Size here. 1.
Custom Size: Enter the Final Trim Size if the book will need to
be trimmed to a custom size that is smaller than the standard book size. For
instance, to order a 5"x8" book, you will need to select 5.5"x8.5" for the book
size, then enter 5"x8" in the final trim size text box here. 2.
Book with Bleeds: If the book has full bleed inside pages,
please select one-size up as your book size, then enter Final Trim Size here.
For instance, if you want to have the final book trimmed at 5.5"x8.5", but you
also have some full bleed pages, you will need to select 6"x9" as your book
size, then enter 5.5"x8.5" here as Final Trim Size.Special
size order: $0.25 per book up to 250 copies and $0.10 per book after that.
