Pricing Information for PDF Ready Books

Note: PDF ready books have a minimum order of 25 copies due to the level of customer service required to process customer files. For orders under 25 copies please use Photogalley's online book design software, click here for pricing fewer than 25 copies.

This screen will allow you to configure a sample book order so that you can get an idea about cost. The cost of your book is computed based on several factors, including: whether it contains color pages, number of pages, number of books ordered, cover material, and binding style, etc. At the time you place your actual order, you will be given a cost based on the options you have selected for your book, which should agree with the cost estimate produced here.

To see pricing based on a sample order, select the appropriate options. You can change options and recalculate as many times as you want.
