How is a children's book printed?
Children's books are typically printed using either Print on Demand services or long-run book printing services. While you may have many options when it comes to the design and features of your book, some publishers do require a high minimum page count – up to 75 pages in some cases.
When you print your children's book with BookBaby, you'll have plenty of options in choosing how you'll bring your story to life. Choose from either a hardcover or softcover (paperback), a variety of paper stock options, and your choice of trim size and binding options. Additionally, our minimum page requirement is only 24 pages – whereas you'll find with other publishing platforms a 75-page minimum for children's books!
You can begin the process for printing your book today by scheduling an appointment with one of our Publishing Specialists, or giving us a call at 1-877-961-6878.
Is it hard to get a children's book published?
Getting a children's book published doesn't have to be hard – it just depends on the route you want to take. The traditional publishing road might be a bit more arduous. You're essentially at the mercy of literary agents and publishers, who receive thousands of submissions in the same genre every day. And if you do end up getting signed with a traditional publisher, you might have to forego some creative control of your work.
However, when you self-publish your children's book, you get to remain in complete control of the entire printing and publishing process. And when you self-publish with BookBaby, you'll get everything you need for your book, all under one roof. Our expert design team will help you create a cover for your children's book that will stand out on the shelves; our marketing services will help your story reach a wider audience; and our editing services will ensure that all of your I's are dotted and T's are crossed.

What is the average price to print a custom children's book?
The average price to print a custom children's book varies. You'll have to decide which features you're looking for when printing – do you need cover design, editing, marketing, or other options to self-publish? How many books are you looking to print?
Printing costs for your children's book also depends on the style of your book. For example, the cost to print your book with BookBaby depends on your trim size, binding and paper options, and whether you want to print in hardcover or softcover.
