Custom Design Tips
We ask you to please design the interior page with a 15mm margin. This allows the book to be easily colored. The areas close to the spine will be hard to color; therefore, we do not recommend having graphics within the 15mm margin.
Next, some coloring book sizes are unique. While some coloring books are portrait, others can be in the landscape style or square in shape. If you are not familiar with designing graphics, we are glad to provide you with our artwork template. Contact our printing specialists now to avail of such services.
Finally, most of the coloring books are saddle-stitched or perfect bound. If you do wire-o-binding or spiral binding coloring book, an extra 6-8mm space on the binding side is required. Our designers will also check the printing files for you. Feel free to send us a couple of your designed papers to check for proper bleed space and margins.
Coloring Book Size
The standard coloring book size is 8.5″ x 11″. If you like a square book, 8.5″ x 8.5″ is a good size. In addition, custom size is also available.
Besides printing coloring books, we can also print other types of books. These include comic books, coffee table books, and cookbooks, etc. In addition, we print catalogs and booklets as well, amongst other things. We always encourage you to contact us.
Coloring Book Paper
Popularly, the inner pages are black ink printing. Owing to the fact that these books will be used for coloring, offset paper for the interior is the best choice. Offset paper also known as uncoated paper or the woodfree paper is brilliant for coloring. To prevent the coloring to bleed through to the other side of the page, we suggest a thicker offset paper. The best coloring paper options include 100gsm, 120gsm, and 140gsm offset paper. The offset paper in our stock is white. Because the drawing color is not easy to be changed on the white paper. Nature paper is also available. But you need to double-check before you print.
Coated one side paper and coated both side papers are good for the coloring book cover. If the cover is both sides printing, coated both sides paper is good. Coated one side paper is better for one side printing on the coloring book cover. 250gsm, 300gsm gloss art paper or matte art paper, and 250gsm, 300gsm coated one side paper is good choice.

- The interior paper can of white or natural colors. You also can choose from recycled paper or FSC paper. Point to be noted is that recycled or FSC paper is more expensive than regular paper. We use soy ink to print coloring book, which makes the books perfectly safe for children to use.

These options include perfect binding, sewing and hardcover binding, saddle stitching and spiral binding. If the inside is less than 64 pages and the color books are for adults, we suggest you do saddle stitch, sewn and hardcover binding, or spiral binding.
