Short run book printing in the UK

Paperback books

Great news: paperback book printing is now available for short runs too. To accommodate an ever-growing demand, Pixartprinting has launched a new category specifically designed for short run book printing.

The benefits of paperback book printing

Short run book printing in the UK is specifically intended for commercial use in small publishing houses or self-publishing projects. Our paperback books will be produced using sewn binding, which creates a classic, traditional look and means that the book will lie flat when opened. It is also a secure and durable method of book binding. As such, you can be sure that you will receive a quality product at competitive prices. If you needed any more incentives to use Pixartprinting for your paperback book printing project in the UK, the higher the volume of printed paperbacks you select, the lower the cost per printed paperback book.

Paperback Book Sizes

We have six page sizes for you to choose from, as follows:

  • 14.8 x 21 cm (A5)
  • 21 x 29.7 cm (A4)
  • 11 x 18 cm
  • 17 x 24 cm
  • 14.8 x 14.8 cm
  • 17 x 17 cm

There are two types of paper available for the inside sheets of your paperback book printing project, both of which are wood-free and natural: Classic Uncoated – Brilliant White Uncoated; and Ivory Uncoated. The inside pages will be printed in black and white and any colour images will be converted to greyscale.

The cover page can be printed in black and white or in colour on 300 gsm laminated paper, with an optional internal flap. The cover page also has the option of a gloss or matt finish. Case binding is also available for the cover.

Paperback short run book printing in the UK

Paperback printed books are available in short print runs, starting from 10 paperback books as a minimum. All paperback printed books are available with a minimum of 80 pages to a maximum of 608 pages. Our convenient online form will update the price and estimated delivery date based on the size of your book and the volume selected. When you’re happy with your selections, download the instructions file to see what we need from you to ensure your project is printed exactly as you envisage. We also offer an enhanced file check by one of our Graphic Designers for a small charge if you would like additional peace of mind.

Complementary products

In addition to fully customisable paperback book printing in the UK, catalogues and brochure printing services, Pixartprinting offers a wide range of printed promotional materials such as flyers and posters which may complement your book launch.
