We've analyzed the competition so you don't have to. Here are prices from four of our largest competitors for their least expensive full-color publishing packages (since we only have one package, it didn't seem fair to them to compare our price with their MOST expensive color packages, which ranged from $5,199 to $15,299).

Included Free with the Full-Color

  • self publishing 56 Trim Size and Format Choices

    Nearly all trim sizes offer both a premium (70-lbs. white) paper and an economy (50-lbs. white) paper, so when you combine that flexibility with so many trim sizes in both paperback and casebound hardback, you have a LOT of choices!

  • self publishing Spring Arbor Christian Distribution

    The Full-Color already offers the widest distribution and availability in the industry, and if your book is religious or Christian in nature, we'll submit your book to Spring Arbor for consideration on your behalf. If Spring Arbor accepts your book, we'll handle those extra details for you.

  • self publishing Cover Style Customization

    The Full-Color package includes 20 available cover styles to choose from and further modify by choosing from an image library of thousands upon thousands of pictures. It's almost (but not quite) like getting a custom cover for free. Nothing beats our custom covers.

  • self publishing ISBN and Barcode

    A Bowkers issued ISBN is a book industry requirement for distribution and retail sales. Every Full-Color package includes an ISBN and a barcode on the back cover of the book, with the option of adding your own Private Label ISBN if you prefer.

  • self publishing Standard Interior Book Formatting

    Another reason Outskirts Press is rated #1 is because our books look so professional, both on the outside and the inside. Every Full-Color package includes free standard interior book formatting by a real, live (and talented) human being.

  • self publishing Standard Press Release

    Every Full-Color package grants you access to your exclusive Publishing Center after publication, where your Author Toolkit gives you control over your author webpage, your sales sheet, and your standard press release, which you can re-print as much as you want.

  • self publishing 20 Image Placements

    The whole point of the Full-Color package is the interior color, which means you probably have images, right? We'll get you started with ten included images designed into your book, and if you need more, additional packages of 20 image-placements can be added for a nominal fee.

  • self publishing 5 Paperback Author's Copies

    Once you receive your publication notice, you will be invited to order your 5 free paperback author's copies, which includes free shipping within the continental United States. You'll be able to order more author's copies at any time for your below-wholesale author's price in quantities as low as 5 at a time.

A Word from a Full-Color Author

I used another publishing company before I knew about Outskirts Press. It was a complete disaster. I did my research before using Outskirts Press. Everyone on the team has been OUTSTANDING, especially after my book was published. Every day I receive valuable information from the marketing coaches. I plan on writing more children stories and will definitely use Outskirts Press. In fact I have already mentioned them to two friends that are writing books.

Package Details

All our covers are full-color, unless purposely requested/submitted by the author to be in black/white. All Full-Color interiors are printed in full-color.

Paperback specifications: Paperback bindings are high-quality perfect bound. We create only industry-standard, high-quality books, so we do not offer comb or spiral bindings.

Hardback specifications: Casebound formats are full-color laminated casebound covers, such as the type you commonly see on textbooks, cookbooks, and children's books. Casebounds are now available with full-color glossy laminated covers or a full-color matte finish. Dust jacket formats (not available with the Pearl) are cloth-stitched hardbacks with gold foil stamping on the spine, completed with a full-color wrap around dust jacket.
