How do I Publish a Hardcover Book?
When publishing a hardcover book, you must choose between traditional or self-publishing. A typical publishing checklist includes:
- Purchase an ISBN (International Standard Book Number).
- Copyright your book.
- Find an illustrator (if needed) or layout designer
- Find a reliable printer (like PRC).
- Find a storage or distribution facility.
- Develop a marketing plan
Sixty percent of PRC’s clients are self-publishing authors, so our team has the knowledge to direct you through the essentials of publishing your hardcover book.

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 a board book vs. hardcover?
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.
