Price $10.00 per Item

Images help convey a message to your readers. Color images can add an element of graphic contrast to your story, or professionalism to your non-fiction text. It gives a visual representation of the text providing a better understand to the reader. When we use the term images, we refer to photos, tables, charts, diagrams, etc.

If you choose our publishing package, you will automatically receive 10 free inserts into your book manuscript. If you want to insert additional graphics beyond the allotted number of image insertions of your chosen package, follow the guidelines below. 


Submission Guidelines for Inserting Graphics into the Interior of Your Book

  • All interior graphics which includes photos, tables, charts, diagrams, drawings, foreign fonts, and anything else that is not text or would be considered a graphic, saved separate from the manuscript itself and saved in a 300-dpi TIFF (.tif) or JPEG (.jpg) file format.

  • We also need a separate back-up TIFF (.tif) file for each of the graphics.

  • For full bleed, the images will need an extra 1/4" bleed around the images, but text and any details not to be cut have to be within a 1/4" from the edges; All images not to be full bleed have to be sized 1/4" from the edges.

  • The manuscript should identify placeholders for each of the interior graphics. Example: 'PLACE [IMAGE NAME] HERE' and please include any captions you wish to include.

  • The additional graphics fee is $10.00 per image insertion within the manuscript.

  • Images will be in color in four color CMYK.

  • The book cover does not "count" as a graphic. It is in full color for no additional charge.

  • Printer slang for "full color" is "four color"; this means the full range of colors, not literally just four colors.

  • Full-color images help improve the look of your book's interior layout. Please follow the guidelines below to make the best use of this service.
