At Publishing Xpress, we offer three standard finished sizes: 8½ x 11 6 x 9 5½ x 8½ But we can print custom sizes as well. We have printed books and catalogs ranging from 3 inches x 3 inches all the way to 11 inches x 17 inches.

When pricing a nonstandard sizes up to 8 ½ x 11, simply select our price calculator for the next largest size. For instance, if you want to print a 5 x 5 book, select the 5 ½ x 8 ½ calculator. Or, if you want a 7 x 10 magazine, just select the 8 ½ x 11 calculator.

At Publishing Xpress, we offer four binding styles for multipage documents:

  • Saddle stitching: Saddle stitching can be used for documents from 8 to 80 pages. Two pages are printed on each side of a large sheet of paper. The sheets are then collated and folded in half, with two staples on the binding edge. Saddle stitching is a good option for catalogs, program booklets, etc. Due to the way they are printed, saddle stitched booklets must be set up in increments of 4 pages. Saddle stitching costs 25 cents per book.
  • Perfect binding: Perfect binding can be used for documents from 8 pages to over 300 pages. Glue is placed in the center of the inside cover and then the inside pages adhere to the glue. Perfect binding is popular for paperback novels and larger magazines. This binding costs 35 cents per book.
  • Plastic coil binding: Plastic coil binding can be used for documents from 8 pages to over 300 pages. This binding is similar to a school notebook, except the binding is covered in black plastic instead of metal. Plastic coil binding is a great option for documents that are heavily used or where the document needs to lay flat. Plastic coil binding costs 50 cents per book.
  • Wire-o binding: Wire-o binding can also be used for documents from 8 pages to over 300 pages. Wire-o binding is similar to plastic coil binding, except the binding is light black wire. Many feel it is more sophisticated looking than plastic coil binding. Wire-o binding is also a good option for documents that are heavily used or where the document needs to lay flat. Wire-o binding costs 60 cents per book.

At Publishing Xpress, we have numerous paper options for the inside pages of your document as well as special papers for covers. All of our papers come in white only.

For inside pages, we offer:

  • 60 lb. uncoated text
  • 70 lb. uncoated text
  • 70 lb. matte text
  • 70 lb. gloss text
  • 80 lb. matte text
  • 80 lb. gloss text
  • 100 lb. matte text
  • 100 lb. gloss text

For covers, you can use the same paper as the inside pages or these paper stocks:

  • 100 lb. matte text
  • 100 lb. gloss text
  • 80 lb. matte cover
  • 80 lb. gloss cover
  • 100 lb. matte cover
  • 100 lb. gloss cover
  • 120 lb. gloss cover (only available with plastic coil and wire-o binding)

When selecting paper stock for saddle stitch binding or perfect binding, we often recommend an 80# cover stock for the cover with 80# text stock for the inside pages or 100# cover stock for the cover with 100# text stock for the inside pages. These combinations work very well together.

For plastic coil and wire-o binding, we recommend the heaviest cover stock (120# finesse cover) with at least 70# uncoated text stock or 80# coated text stock on the inside pages.

If you are not sure what paper stocks to use, order our printing sample package. That package contains a plastic coil bound sample book with sample of all of our paper stocks.

At Publishing Xpress, we offer UV coating of covers. UV coating adds a shiny coating to the cover, making the colors on the cover pop. The availability of UV coating depends on the binding style.

We cannot UV coat covers on saddle stitched documents. The binding is performed during the printing process, so we cannot coat covers.

We can UV coat the outside cover of perfect bound documents. However, the inside cover cannot be UV coating, because that would prevent the inside pages from adhering to the glue in the spine of the book.

With plastic coil and wire-o binding, we can UV coat both the front and back covers. UV coating costs 20 cents per side per book.

Our normal turnaround time is 5 business days after proof approval. We also offer expedited turnaround times:

  • 3 business days after proof approval costs 10% extra
  • 2 business days after proof approval costs 15% extra
  • 1 business day after proof approval costs 25% extra

Call us at 1-877-977-3779 or chat online if you need same day processing. If it is possible, we will do it for you.

Unlike other printing companies, we provide you with an exact number of production days. We do not give you a range of days, because we do not think that is very helpful for you to schedule jobs. However, please keep in mind that our turnaround times are our production times only and do not include UPS shipping times to deliver your order. Shipping times with the United States can vary from 1 to 4 business days. Please see our shipping page to determine how many shipping days you are from our location. You can also expedite shipping for an additional charge. UPS offers overnight, 2nd day, and 3-day shipping in addition to standard ground shipping.

At Publishing Xpress, we only accept PDF files for your printing files. The PDF file must be high resolution, which will embed all fonts and graphics, so that no elements are moved or displaced on your pages. Please review every page of your PDF before uploading it to us. You are the only one who can judge whether all of the pages are correct and that nothing has shifted or moved.

Our customer service reps review every job before it is shipped. In many cases, they will notice things like low-resolution graphics, layering issues, and sometimes even typos. If they notice something, they will bring it to your attention so that you can correct it. However, we cannot guarantee that we will notice everything that may be wrong with a particular job.

  • Spine Calculator

    When counting pages, include the cover. When preparing your spine, be sure to add 1.8 bleed on all four sides. If you are adding text to your spine, make sure that you do not make the size of the text exactly equal to the width of the spine. Leave some blank room on both sides of the text so the text does not run exactly to the edge of the spine.
