Coffee Table Book Paper

1, Considering the large size of typical coffee table books, we usually recommend 3mm thickness boards for the coffee table book cover, which is wrapped with a printed 157gsm art paper, cloth, or vinyl material. The end sheets are 170gsm uncoated paper with printed, colored, or texture paper. 

2, If the size is 8.5″ x 11″, we suggest a 2.5mm thickness board for the cover and 140gsm uncoated paper for the end sheets. 

3, Most coffee table books have more than 200 interior pages. We suggest the interior paper to be 157gsm, 200gsm gloss, or matte art paper; 100gsm, 120gsm and 140gsm uncoated paper are also good choices. These paper types are recommended because the ink on them does not bleed through, regardless of how much ink density has been used. Some self-publishers prefer coated paper and some self-publishers like uncoated paper. It depends on your book design style. But we should remind that the colors of images printed on uncoated paper and coated paper are different. The colors printed on uncoated paper are darker than the colors printed on coated paper. Because uncoated paper absorbs the ink much more than coated paper. To get a sample to check the colors printed on coated paper and uncoated paper, please contact us. We can send a free sample for checking.

4, If you wanted to add a dust jacket or slipcase for the coffee table book, we suggest you choose 157gsm or 200gsm art paper for the dust jacket and the same thickness board as the book cover.

Design Tips

Firstly, if the coffee table book has a printed cover, please tell us your book size, interior paper material, and the page count. Click here to get a cover template to create your design. Starting with designing on a proper template will save you a lot of time and also make the entire process seamless and smooth.

Secondly, some coffee table book covers are vinyl or cloth. Vinyl or cloth cannot be printed over directly. We can only do foil stamping, debossing, or silk printing. You can choose from the many foil color options for the foil stamping that we have.

The minimum font for doing foil stamping and debossing on vinyl and cloth is 12pt. Please design the fonts and LOGO with vector artwork. The size of the LOGO or texts on the spine should be less than spine width by at least 2mm.

Finally, all photos should be of high resolution and all texts designed with vector.
