Cookbook Printing Sizes
The good thing about customization is that the size of your cookbook is entirely up to you. Depending on the size of your book and its typesetting, you may want a smaller or larger dimension. Our standard sizes for cookbooks are 8.5 x 11, 6 x 9, and 5.5 x 8.5, but you can print any custom size up to 8.5 x 11. The 8.5″ x 8.5″ cookbook allows for your readers to lay the book completely flat on a table in portrait orientation.
Types of Binding for Cookbook Prints
When you are cooking up a feast while referencing a cookbook, the last thing you need is a book that requires you to physically hold it up. In between the stirring, tasting, and cooking, referring to a cookbook can be made simple if the binding allows the book to lay flat. For that reason, we recommend plastic coil binding or wire-o binding. Struggling to choose the right binding for your cookbook? Let our team of printing experts help!

Artwork for Cookbook Prints
While there isn’t a strict rule to have artwork and photos in your cookbook, it is undeniable that visuals enhance the experience of your readers. Having full-color photographs next to your recipes can help increase reader appreciation of your cookbook.
There are a few key pointers to keep in mind when sending in your artwork for cookbook prints:
- Only use high-resolution photos. Make sure that they are at least 300 dpi resolution. Color or black and white both work, but color is usually much better.
- Be aware of copyright laws regarding photo and artwork usage. As a rule of thumb, photos are copyrighted unless you own them, or if you are using royalty-free images.
