Book Printing

Locked 10 x 10 inch square???

Will there ever be this size book offered? the 7×7 is cute but often too small for certain things and the 12 × 12 is really really big on a coffee table…could we get an inbetween size?  10 × 10 is perfect and becoming very popular at a lot of companies.

I COMPLETELY agree! As a wedding photographer, I’d like to offer press quality photo books as an alternative to expensive albums. I’d rather offer two square size options than the two landscape sizes available now, but 7×7 is just too small to start with! I think a 9×9 would be nice too, a good 3 inch difference before you get to the 12×12.

For me the same. a 9×9 inch would fit better to the common size 21×21 cm. I look forward to the moment BLURB will offer this possibility.

21 by 21 cm is a standard size. If Blurb would be able to offer more standard sizes, it would mean more possibilities for us.

I came to the forum to add a topic regarding a medium sized square book and noticed this topic.  I totally agree that a 9×9 or 10×10 option would be great.  (I’d prefer 9×9.)  12×12 is sometimes too big and 7×7 is sometimes too small.  I hope this size option is added by blurb in the very near future!!

Yes a 10 × 10 inch book is what i’m waiting for.  My wedding book was designed at that scale and i’ve got interest in rescaling it to 13 or 7. 

 Hey – does anyone know of a good printer that will do custom 10 by 10 books right now?

I agree. The choises are really small or really big. A middle size would be perfect.

A 10 × 10 would be perfect!

Dear Blurb -

I have been waiting in vain for three years to have a 10×10 book option. PLEASE add that size to your offering!!

Thanks.

I am about to start a new book in the next week or so and was really hoping for a 10×10 size and for some reason thought Blurb already offered this?  Now I’m not sure whether to create my book elsewhere in my ideal size or create a different size with Blurb?

Anyway, count this as another vote for this size

I agree a 10×10″ book would be great! I have been sourcing boxes for my books and have found a great box for the 12×12″ book and could get the same style for the 10×10″… Come on Blurb!!! Maybe Blurb could also look at supplying boxes???

I ordered an 8..5 × 8.5 book from another company due to the limited choices of square books that Blurb offers.  I’d love to see a 10×10 or 9×9 size.  Hurry up with this, PLEASE, Blurb.

Yo también apoyo la petición a blurb de un tamaño medio de libro cuadrado.

I have just completed an MS in Word, sized in A4 (21 cm x 29.5 cm) as is usual here in NZ.  My problem is that if I use any of the standard Blurb sizes it will require changes to all the foot-note references which I am not prepared to do.

Don’t think I can use Blurb services, but would welcome any advice to the contrary.

I agree as well.  12×12 is too large.  It would be great to have 10×10 hardcover and paperback formats.  9×9 might work, but I think 10×10 is best.  Can this be done???

10×10 would be my greatest wish, too. I like the square format a lot and 12×12 gives really impressive looks. I like to take my books in hand a lot of times and just watch some pictures – for this 12×12 is too big and it gets quiet heavy to handle. 7×7 is no alternative to me, as it’s really tiny. Hope to see a 10×10 from Blurb really soon!

what is the cost on a printed book, say 12×12 with 80 pages with a picture on each page?

If you look at the menus at the top (or bottom) of this page you will see one named Pricing, you’ll find the details there.

Agreed. A 10X10" would be swell.
