Softcover Book Printing

Perfect-Bound Softcover Books with a High Quality Laminate Cover

About Our Softcover Books

Our softcover books are built to impress with laminated covers that make colors pop and full-bleed images available on every page (and they're all acid-free, by the way). Our state-of-the-art Xerox iGen 3 high-resolution digital presses bring your images to life with color as stunning as the photos you take.

Glossy full-bleed case-bound covers allow you to wrap your images right over the edge — or even go beyond it, stretching your image clear across to the back cover for maximum impact.

Picture Perfect

Whether you're a professional wedding photographer providing guests with a memento to cherish, an administrator looking for an affordable option for school directories and memory books, a soccer coach looking for an affordable option for your team's memory books, or a new parent documenting the life of the most beautiful baby to ever draw breath, you'll get gorgeous results.

A Few More FAQ's

Creating a book is easy. Simply create a photo gallery with the pictures you want to use, use the Designer to lay out your book, and then add your finished book to your shopping cart. Or you can create your layout using your favorite desktop publishing or graphics program, and upload your PDF file.

Prices are determined by book size, paper type, page count, and even quantity. There is a base cost for the binding, and a per page cost.

For exact pricing on each product, please see our Product Catalog.

There is an automatic trim that occurs during production to ensure that all pages are flush; it gives your book that “finished” look that you would see in bookstores!

Check out our Cropping and Bleed help page for FAQs, pointers, and more in depth information on cropping and bleed in projects!

Pictures in all shapes and sizes are welcome! We do recommend the following:

Check Your Resolution!

The minimum recommended resolution is 2 megapixels (1600x1200). However, the larger the image, the crisper the printed photos will appear. A 4 or 5 megapixel image creates a beautiful, full page print for all photo book sizes. Our page on Understanding Resolution will help your photos look their best - just remember your images should be 300DPI.

Colorspace Specs

If you have predominantly photo oriented work, our strongest recommendation is just go with sRGB. Our system is tuned to sRGB, so that is ideal, however Adobe 1998 also works fine. (Using other RGB color spaces, such as ProPhoto RGB, are highly discouraged, and likely to yield muted or color shifted results.)

If you have a lot of page layout work already in CMYK, we suggest sticking to that colorspace. The easiest ICC profile to use is the US Web Coated SWOP.
