Print Formats

All manuscripts submitted to iUniverse are formatted as trade paperbacks and printed on high-quality, acid-free, book-grade opaque paper stock.

Softcover Publishing

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.

Hardcover Publishing

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.
