When we indicate paperback book printing jobs, actually it means softcover book printing jobs. We can regard softcover book printing as paperback book printing exactly. Paperback book printing term describes and refers to a book with binding a paperback cover. The covers of such books are usually made of paper or paperboard, and are usually combined with glue, thread, coils or staples. Paperback book printing jobs have existed since 1900s with a number of formats such as pamphlets, yellowbacks, dime novels and airport novels etc. In contrast, books with hardcover are bound with cardboard covered with cloth, leather, PLC and so on.

Book printers must balance the larger profit made by selling few hardcovers with a great profit per unit, against the potentially greater profit to be made by selling many paperbacks with a small profit per unit. Many modern books, especially genre fiction, are first editions in paperback. Best-selling books may maintain sales in hardcover sufficiently to delay a paperback edition for longer than a year.

Robert de Graaf, in 1939, issued a similar paperback book printing line in the USA, partnering with Simon & Schuster to create the Pocket Booksimprint. The term of pocket book became synonymous with paperback in English-speaking North America. In Quebec, the term was used and is still in use today. His practices contrasted with those of Lane in his adoption of illustrated covers, aimed at the North American market. In order to reach an even broader market than Lane, he went the mass-market route through distribution networks of newspapers and magazines, which had a lengthy history of being aimed (in format and distribution) at mass audiences. This was the beginning of mass-market paperbacks. Because of its number-one position in what became a very long list of pocket editions often cited as the first American paperback book printing job, which is not correct. The first mass-market, pocket-sized, paperback book printed in America was an edition.

A trade paperback book printing job sometimes referred to as a trade paper edition, is a standard-sized or large-sized paperback book. If it is a softcover edition of a previous hardcover edition, and if published by the same publishing house as the hardcover, the text pages are normally identical to the text pages in the hardcover edition, and the book is usually the same size as the hardcover edition. Significantly, the pagination is the same, so that references to the text will be unchanged: this is particularly important for reviewers and scholars. The only difference is the soft binding; the quality of the paper is usually higher than that of a mass-market paperback. Trade paperbacks are typically priced less than hardcover books and higher than mass-market paperbacks. Virtually all advance copies sent for promotional and review purposes are issued in trade paperback format. In the medium of comic books, trade paperbacks are used to reprint several issues of a comic series in one volume, usually an important storyline or the entire series itself, and the name trade paperback has become synonymous with a collection of reprinted material. Graphic novels are also sometimes found in trade paperback form. Publishers sometimes release popular collections first in a hardback form, followed by a trade paperback book printing job several months later.
