Generally speaking, regardless of print method (offset or digital) there is still a certain amount of setup and waste associated with printing and binding books. This means that even though printing one book is less expensive than printing 1000 books, the price per book is significantly lower with the higher quantity.

Every author is different, and the way they go about printing their work reflects this. Some find it more important to maintain their exact specifications and increase quantity in order to arrive at a certain price per book. Others are more concerned about the total dollars spent and are more willing to choose a different binding style, book size or even the number of pages in order to increase the number of books they will receive while staying below a certain threshold. And then there's the price is no object publisher that looks to create a book so unique that it draws attention from 20 feet away. We try to provide the options that will allow everyone to reach their budget goals.

Even before you start your manuscript, it can help to show how many pages at a certain size to target in order to stay within your printing budget. Also, with the number of binding options available, there may be some unique ways to draw attention to your title. For instance, a photographer may decide that a landscape style case wrapped book will provide a more interesting way of displaying her work, or an architecture buff may find that a portrait style wire-o book bound along the top edge will give his book about skyscrapers more room to stretch.
