Children’s Books

PrintNinja recommends keeping the following information in mind when designing a children’s book.

Children’s books come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes in order to suit the creative needs of the story. Some are small with thin uncoated paper, some are large with thick gloss paper, and some are completely somewhere in between. If you browse the aisles of your local library or bookstore, you’ll find children’s books in all types of shapes, colors, and sizes. Children’s books, more than anything, lend themselves to whatever format and materials you prefer – and we offer a ton of different options for you to choose from! If you need a place to start, read our recommendations below; the sizes can be either portrait (for example, 8″ x 10″) or landscape (10″ x 8″). Of course, you can totally disregard our instructions and be make your own guidelines – children’s books are probably one of the best formats to have some fun with while creating your printing project with PrintNinja.
