iUniverse softcover books are formatted as trade paperbacks. Trade paperback is an industry term that describes a book that is of better production quality. These books are produced in a larger size and offered at a higher price than a mass-market paperback format. Mass-market paperbacks are generally cheaply made and printed on newsprint or other low-quality paper, which will discolor and disintegrate over time. Trade paperbacks, on the other hand, meet a higher standard and are printed on high-quality paper.
iUniverse offers trade paperbacks in the following trim sizes:
Black & White Trim sizes
- 5" x 8"
- 5.5" x 8.5"
- 6" x 9"
- 7.5" x 9.25"
- 8.25" x 11"
Color Trim Sizes
- 8.5" x 8.5"
- 8.5" x 11"
iUniverse softcover books are printed on high-quality, acid-free, book-grade opaque paper stock in black and white or grayscale halftones. Softcovers are printed on a bright white cover stock in full color.
*Books included in publishing packages will be shipped at standard shipping rates.
