Printing

Because we do custom publishing, we don't have a fixed price list for printing. We work with several different printers, and the volume we print insures that we get the best price possible for you.

The cost of printing your book depends on several factors:

  • trim size of the book (the dimensions of the page)
  • number of pages
  • type of paper stock
  • any color drawings or photos included in the text
  • number of black and white photos, if any
  • your choice of hardback, paperback or spiral binding
  • dust jacket for hardback books
  • and of course, the number of copies

Typically, we don't produce less than 1,000 copies for paperbacks or less than 500 copies for hardbacks. The price breaks are significant at 3,000, 5,000, 10,000 and 20,000 copies. Most of our clients print 3,000 to 5,000 copies.

ISBN Registration

Baxter Press will assign an ISBN number and list your book with Books In Print. Your book will then be in that publication in the reference section in every library in the country, as well as on the Books in Print web site for every bookstore. You, the author, will retain the copyright to your book.
