You can accurately calculate the spine width of your book by using this tool. Please note that most of our standard text paper options are included in the spine calculator. If the paper type you need is not listed, please contact CHG and we will assist you in determining the spine width of your book. If you or your designer need to know the spine width or need other layout instructions for your cover or dust jacket, contact CHG for a layout template.
Note: for cover stock options, please call or email us. Also, white gloss enamel is available in silk/dull finish and may be less expensive than matte text.
