Paperback books are a popular format for publishing books due to their affordability and convenience. They are often printed on lightweight paper, making them easy to carry and transport. The covers are typically made from cardstock or paper, which can be printed in full color or in black and white.

Paperback books are a great option for both fiction and non-fiction books, as they are cost-effective to produce and can be sold at a lower price point than hardcover books. They are also easier to produce in smaller print runs, making them a popular choice for self-publishing authors and small publishers.

In addition to being affordable, paperback books are also highly customizable. They can be printed in a range of sizes and formats, including mass-market paperback, trade paperback, and digest-size paperback. This makes them a great option for books of all genres and lengths, from novels to memoirs to cookbooks.

Overall, paperback books are a versatile and cost-effective option for publishing books. They offer authors and publishers a way to produce high-quality books at a lower cost, while still providing readers with a convenient and portable format for enjoying their favorite books.


A hardcover, hardcover, or hardback (also known as hardbound, and sometimes as case-bound) book is one bound with rigid protective covers (typically of binder’s board or heavy paperboard covered with buckram or other cloth, heavy paper, or occasionally leather). It has a flexible, sewn spine which allows the book to lie flat on a surface when opened. Following the ISBN sequence numbers, books of this type may be identified by the abbreviation Hbk.

Hardcover books are often printed on acid-free paper, and they are much more durable than paperbacks, which have flexible, easily damaged paper covers. Hardcover books are marginally more costly to manufacture. Hardcovers are frequently protected by artistic dust jackets, but a “jacketless” alternative has increased in popularity: these “paper-over-board” or “jacketless” hardcover bindings forgo the dust jacket in favor of printing the cover design directly onto the board binding.


Hardcover Dust Jackets

A dust jacket is a detachable outer cover with folded flaps. The folded flaps wrap around the front and back of the book covers to protect books from dirt and damage. Our prints dust jackets on silk paper stock with a protective gloss or matt lamination.
