Outskirts Press can print author's black & white interior and full-color cover print-ready files in paperback, casebound hardback or dust-jacketed hardback format.

A paperback edition is included with your publishing package with the option to upgrade to a casebound or dust-jacket hardback edition (either in addition to your paperback or instead of a paperback).

We offer premium glossy or matte covers in a wide range of book trim size to fit every kind of book—from hardback workbooks to trade paperback novels.  You will be able to choose exactly how your book looks and feels—from the cover finish and paper color to the binding style.  See details on all available binding, paper and cover finish options for each book size.

7 (seven) trim sizes are available to self-publishing authors providing their own print-ready book files when printing black and white books.

A book is only as good as the files used to print it.  That’s why our prepress team works with you to ensure your book’s files are perfect.  You’ve formatted and prepared your manuscript and book cover to look exactly how you want them—so we want to make sure your book is perfect when it’s printed.   

A print-ready file specialist will be assigned to ensure your book's interior and cover files are set up properly for our presses—before we send them to print.  If your files need adjustment that you aren't sure how to handle, your specialist will assist you in bringing your file in line with the necessary technical specifications (additional fees will apply). 

To see if your book is press-ready, contact your Publishing Consultant for a copy of our Print Ready File Creation Guide.
