Book Sizes
and Dimensions

The book sizes and dimensions listed on this page and throughout most of our site are rounded measurements. These sizes are only guidelines to approximate sizing, and should not be used in order to design an actual book or magazine. If you’re creating collateral pieces (like custom envelopes) to go with your finished book, please refer to the book size chart below. You can find additional information on trim and bleed at the bottom of the page.

Dimension information for creating an actual project, should be calculated on our Specification Calculator for exact spine, cover, and page measurements.

Note: All specs below are shown width by height. Please note that ImageWrap books do not have cover flaps.

Additional Trim and Bleed Information

Page trim: These measurements show final trimmed page sizes. The printer takes approximately .3175 cm off the top, bottom, and outside edge (face) of an untrimmed page to produce the trimmed page size. Variations of up to 0.3175 cm can occur from printer to printer to aid in binding, so please keep critical content at least .635 cm away from final trim sizes.

Bleed: Images can bleed off the page, but please be mindful that trim is not always exact (as this is a custom manufacturing process). If you're designing your own pages in InDesign or Photoshop, please be sure to keep critical content—images and text—at least .635 cm away from final trim sizes and at least 2.5 cm from your book's edges for ImageWrap covers.
