Are you confused by complex book printing pricing skills? Do you not know how book printing pricing come from? Normally the book printing prices can be divided into two parts: fixed and variable. The fixed prices mean make-ready costs when all necessary machines are done ready for printing or binding, it does not matter with the qty, and just come from detail technical and specification requirements. The variable prices would changed along with the qty, it means the costs that would happen to each unit. If you can understand these two different defition terms, you would understand many types pricing skills or matrix. This clarification is helpful to work out the costs for many different quantity. It is a simple formula to work out unit price based on these two parts.

Here below is a sample for standard hardcover book printing specifications so you can understand China book printing pricing skills as above that we talk about right now.

Format:           A4 210mm x 279mm portrait
Extent:            264pp text + 8pp endpaper + case
Material & printing:
Text:               print 4c/4c (CMYK) on 128gsm matte coated art paper
Endpaper:        print 4c/4c (CMYK) on 120gsm uncoated wood free paper
Case:              print 4c/0c on 128gsm glossy coated art paper plus matte lamination over 2.50mm board
Pre-press:       PDF artworks to be supplied by customer, low-res laser proofs will be provided for approval.
Binding:          Section sewn, black H/T, case bound
Packing:         export carton and palletized (14cps/ctn/18.60kg, 36ctns/pallet/700kg/1.30CBM)
Delivery:          warehouse in Hong Kong
Price & qty:    7,000cps @ US$2.88/cpy, total US$20,160
                     7,500cps @ US$2.81/cpy, total US$21,100
For example, the fixed make-ready costs are US$7000 total, and variable run-on costs are US$1.88/cpy, so you can find the unit cost is US$7000/7000cps plus US$1.88/cpy (actually it is US$2.88/cpy); the unit cost for 7,500cps is US$7000/7500cps plus US$1.88/cpy (equal to US$2.81/cpy).
