Need exact book specifications? You’ve come to the right place

The book sizes listed throughout our site are rounded measurements (because who wants to call a book the 6.875 x 6.625 inch size?). So if you’re creating collateral pieces (like custom envelopes) to go with your finished book, please refer to the handy chart below. You can find additional information on trim and bleed at the bottom of the page, and BookSmart can help you out with pixel information and container size. If you want to import your own designs into BookSmart, view our blog post “Look no further for full-bleed page specs.”

Note: All specs below are shown width by height. Please note that ImageWrap books do not have cover flaps.

Additional Trim and Bleed Information

Page trim: These measurements show final trimmed page sizes. The printer takes approximately 1/8" (.3175 cm) off the top, bottom, and outside edge (face) of an untrimmed page to produce the trimmed page size. Variations of up to 1/8" can occur from printer to printer to aid in binding, so please keep critical content at least 1/4" (.635 cm) away from final trim sizes.


Bleed: Images can bleed off the page, but please be mindful that trim is not always exact (as this is a custom manufacturing process). If you're designing your own pages in InDesign or Photoshop, please be sure to keep critical content — images and text — at least 1/4" (.635 cm) away from final trim sizes and at least one inch (2.5 cm) from your book's edges for ImageWrap covers.
