CALCULATIONS

The information below is provided to help ensure the proper cover sizing.

Complete cover size should be 17" x 11" (tabloid).
Your book size will be (width of the left page + width of spine + width of right page) by (height of book).

SPINE CALCULATION:

x = a + by

x = spine width

a = cover thickness (constant of .0327")

b = paper thickness (constant of .0046")

y = sheets of paper

EXAMPLE:

Your book consists of 100 sheets of paper (200 pages) and you want it printed so the book will be 6" x 9".

Spine width = .0327 + (.0046 x 100) = .4927"
Book size = (6" + .4927" + 6") by (9") = 12.4927" x 9"
