Coffee Table Book Industry Standards
A coffee table book is an outstanding medium for showing off some of your most eye-catching visuals. Typically, coffee table books consist of photographs, illustrations, or art accompanied by small amounts of text. For photographers, landscapers, architecture firms, and similar types of specialists, these stunning oversized hardcovers are must-have business tools that can boost sales and inspire clients. They’re also a great way for independent creators to sell photography or artwork. Using the standards outlined below, PrintNinja can turn your collection of images into a captivating coffee table book to enchant your customers, visitors, or anyone else in your network.

As with all of our projects, the standards listed here are provided as a guideline to help frame your printing decisions. Additional specialty printing options, such as embossing and foil stamping, are also available to help your most striking focal points pop off the page. Or, if you’d like to deviate from standard sizing, you can do so without having to worry about extra fees for custom trims. Cover features, including finishes, stock options, and accessories such as dust jackets, allow you to further customize your coffee table book to flawlessly capture the spirit of your project.
No matter which options you settle on, you can rest assured your end product will be a visually stunning collection of larger-than-life images. PrintNinja proudly offers offset printing, by which colors deeply saturate the page to do your artwork or photography the justice it deserves. Coupled with full bleed, which takes your images all the way to the edge of the page at no extra cost, our exceptional print quality will lend itself to the perfect conversation-starter to support the interests of your business, side project, or hobby.
