Colour Image Insertion

We can scan and convert your full-colour images to make them appear crisp and clean on the pages of your book. These images can range from photos, tables, charts, diagrams and other full-colour graphics.

Submission Guidelines for Image Insertion:

  • All graphics— photos, tables, charts, diagrams, drawings, foreign fonts, and any file— that is not text must be saved separate from your manuscript itself and saved in a 300-dpi TIFF (.tif) or JPEG (.jpg) file format.
  • We also require a separate back-up TIFF (.tif) file for each of the graphics
  • For full-bleed images, we need an extra ¼” bleed around the images, but text and any details not to be cut have to be within a ¼” from the edges.
  • All images not to be full-bleed should be sized ¼” from the edges.
  • Additional fee is 500 per image insertion
  • Images will be in colour (four colour CMYK)
  • The book cover does not count as a graphic image. It can be in full colour and is free of charge.
  • Printer slang for “full colour” is “four colour” which means the full range of colours, not in the literal sense.
