The cost varies dependent upon what services you utilize as well as how many books you want printed. 

  1. What kind of binding is available?

Arseya offers 3 types of book binding: 

-  For poetry chapbooks that are less than 100 pages, saddle stitching is recommended.
-  For most books, the common binding is a paperback ‘perfect’ binding. 
-  Hardcover stitched binding is also available, but of course, it is more expensive. A full color dust cover adds the finishing touch for an elegant solution

For saddle stitched books, you can print as few as 100.
In a perfect bound ‘paperback’ format, you can print from 250, to 500, 1000 or more.  The more you print, the lower the per book printing cost.

If you choose, Arseya will include your book in the Arseya Book Store, with ‘look inside’ features and PayPal purchasing flexibility.
