All manuscripts submitted to iUniverse are formatted as trade paperbacks and printed on high-quality, acid-free, book-grade opaque paper stock.
Our paperback books are formatted as trade paperbacks featuring better production quality, a larger size, and a higher retail price than a mass-market paperback format. Paperback formatting is standard with all of our publishing packages.
Our hardcover books feature a durable cloth binding, an embossed spine, and a full-color dust jacket that allows room for descriptive copy about your book and your author biography on its inside flaps. Hardcover formatting is included in the pricing of our Bookstore Premier Pro and the Premier Pro package and is available as an add-on feature in our Premier and Select packages.
