Helpful Tips for choosing options:

Digital Versus Offset

The two most common methods to publishing your print books are digital and offset printing. Digital, known by many as print-on-demand, is best for meeting tight deadlines and shorter print runs. There are no printing plates needed in the production process and the ink dries in a matter of minutes. Additionally, it eliminates the storage challenges of years past. No longer, will you have to flood your basement with books. Order what you want, when you want it, whether it is for a signing, launch, contest, or review.

Offset on the other hand, is the preferred option for mass production and larger trim sizes. Its production costs decrease as your print quantities increase. However, the process requires longer turnaround times because printing plates need to be manufactured before the ink gets rolled onto the paper. Luckily, the print quality is impeccable, and the anxious wait for your sample copy will be worth it.


Take a glance at our binding options below to see which style best suits your book.


Perfect Bound

In this process, the printer or binder glazes your book's spine with an adhesive to connect the heart and soul of your book with a heavier paper cover. You will most likely use perfect binding if you plan to publish paperback copies. Most print books are perfect bound as it creates a product for readers that is portable and easier to grip.


An alternative paperback option that uses staples to attach the paperback cover to its interior. This binding is best for chapbooks and novellas less than 50 pages.


Case Binding

This binding is only used for hardbacks. The pages and cardboard cover are woven together before being trimmed and pressed. Blanketing the cardboard is a laminated sheet with your finalized cover design.

Hardback copies are meant to be cherished through multiple generations. They are more durable than paperbacks and offer a sleeker look. Authors and publishers typically go with this format if their hardback is a first or special edition.

Trim Sizes

Our print-on-demand service can accommodate just about any trim size. Here are some of the industry standards:

Determine the Look for Your Book

Choosing Order Quantity

The answer to the million dollar question is it depends. If you need copies to hand out at a signing or public speaking event, you will only want to print between 50 and 100 copies. However, a book launch may require 3,000 copies if your sales projections are high. Ultimately, your goals, your budget, your marketing plan, and your customer’s demand determine your print run.

What do we recommend? If you’re a new author, start with 300 books. You can always order more if demand exceeds your expectations.

Before your manuscript even enters the printing stage, eBooks2go formats your manuscript into a print-ready PDF. Laying out the pages on your own can be tricky, especially if it’s your first time. To avoid having crucial sentences cut off the page, we relieve you of the hassles involved in page composition. Afterward, your finalized manuscript is sent to the printing partner best equipped for the job.
