What You Should Know About Hardcover Book Printing from the Experts at PRC Book Printing

Hardcover book printing, also known as hardback, hardcase, or hardbound is the most professional type of book binding. Hardcover book printing is a printing method where the book’s cover consists of hard board material.

A hardcover book uses the case binding method, in which trimmed blocks of pages are gathered and glued together, then cased in with a stiff cardboard cover. This type of book cover works best for coffee table books, cookbooks, children’s books, and many other types of high-quality books. Hardcover book printing service usually results in a higher quality book.

The best books usually have well-designed covers and print on high-quality paper. If you are looking for a printer who can help you create a beautiful book, PRC Book Printing is your go-to choice.

What’s Better: Hardcover or Paperback?

A combination of economic pressures and advances in printing technology saw the introduction of the paperback in 1935, it proved an immediate success. Authors have since had two options when taking their book to print – the classic hardcover, or the inexpensive and cheerful paperback. So, which should you, the self-published author, choose?

Choosing between a hardcover and a paperback is often a difficult decision. The answer depends on what you are looking for in a book, how you’re selling your book, your target audience, price range and type of book.

There is a lot to consider when deciding on what type of book you’re trying to create/sell. That’s where PRC Book Printing comes in to help.

Three major factors come into play when choosing between printing Paperback books or Printing Hardcover books – cost, functionality, and appeal.


Hardcover print costs can be a slightly higher than a paperback. Highly anticipated books are released in hardcover months or even years before a paperback version is released to make the greatest amount of profit possible.

Paperbacks, however, are an inexpensive and a cheerful option. A modest fraction of the cost of hardcovers, but they also damage more easily and wear out with repeated use.


Functionality will mean different things to different readers. A hardcover is the strong and beautiful option. They are far more durable than paperbacks, and their beauty and collectability mean that they hold their value far better too.

A paperback on the other hand, is light, compact, easily transportable, can be bent and stuffed into the corner of a bag.

Think of your audience. There is a reason that Encyclopedia Britannica is printed in hardcover and Mills & Boon novels in paperback.


The appeal of your book’s cover choice is indelibly linked to its functionality, so it’s vital that you think of how your readers will be using it. Further, the appeal of your book will also be tied to the expectations of your audience. If you publish in a sphere that favors hardcover books, then a paperback will look cheap and nasty. In contrast, a hardcover in a paperback world seems unnecessary, and will kill sales.

All market considerations aside, most people will happily admit that hardcover books have an appeal that paperbacks simply can’t match. If you are looking for something that people will want and can price it in a way that they will not be put off buying it, a hardcover is an excellent choice.

    Hardcover Book Printing FAQ’s?

    What is the difference between hardcover and paperback books?

    Hardcover binding is created with paper wrapped around board. The joining of these two elements protect the interior book block. All of PRC’s hardcover books are Smyth Sewn and case bound, processes which provide the best longevity.

    Paperback books, on the other hand, are only bound with paper instead of a hard board cover, although the cover material is usually a thicker stock than the interior pages. Paperback interior book blocks are either saddle stitched, glued, or signature sewn and glued to cover stock.

    What is the difference between board books vs. hardcover books?

    Board books are generally geared towards age groups 5 years of age and under; the thicker pages are easier for a young child or toddler to turn without tearing. Case binding is more common for age groups 6 and up, although PRC has produced board books for adult audiences as well upon request.

    What is a hardback book?

    Hardback is just another term for hardcover, or books with case binding.

    How much does it cost to print a hardcover book?

    The cost of producing a hard cover book depends on the trim size, paper, inks, and more. PRC Book Printing Representatives will assist in guiding you through the best options for your book, and provide transparent and cost-effective pricing.

    Why are hardcover books more expensive?

    Printing a hardcover book is more expensive than a paperback book due to the cost of boarding and end sheets. If printing overseas, the increase in the weight of the books will also elevate the shipping costs. The retail price of a hardcover book is generally higher, however, allowing for more profit once your book hits the stores. The PRC Book Printing team will work to get you the best price for this binding method.

    Do hardcover books last longer?

    The pages within a hard cover book are better protected by the boarded cover, while paperback books only have a thicker paper stock, which is more easily damaged. Hard covers tend to last longer and resist damage better than paperback books, although it will depend on how the book is cared for. PRC’s hardcover books are Smyth Sewn and then cased to provide extra longevity to your books.
