Paper Stock and Weight

Cover material

book cover material

One of the most commonly used materials for cover of custom bible printing is paper. We offer a wide range of paper options, such as coated paper, special paper and more. Coated paper is known for its smooth and glossy finish, which gives the books a sleek and modern look. On the other hand, special paper offers a unique texture and can be customized with various patterns or designs to add a personal touch to the bible cover.

When selecting the paper material for your book cover, it is important to consider the weight and thickness of the paper. A heavier and thicker paper will provide better protection for your books.

If you’re seeking the ultimate in luxury and durability, leather covers are the perfect choice. Made from premium quality faux leather or leather, these bible covers exude elegance and sophistication. Leather covers are not only visually striking but also offer superior protection for your bible.

For those looking for a more elegant and luxurious option, we also offer cloth materials for custom your bible cover. Cloth cover are often preferred for art books or photo books, etc, as they add a touch of sophistication to the overall presentation. Our cloth materials come in a variety of colors and textures, allowing you to choose the perfect option to complement your book’s design.

Interior paper

Choosing the right paper stock and weight is crucial in bible book printing. The paper quality can significantly impact the durability, aesthetics, and readability of the final product. When it comes to paper stock, there are several options to consider, including bible paper, coated and uncoated paper.

Uncoated paper and bible paper has a more natural and tactile feel. Making it suitable for bibles with a minimalist design or those that prioritize readability.

Coated paper has a glossy finish that enhances the colors and sharpness of the text and images. It is ideal for bibles with full-color illustrations and photographs, like children's bible stories book.

The weight of the paper is also an important consideration. The thickness of the paper affects the overall feel and durability of the book. For bibles, a heavier paper weight is recommended to withstand frequent use and ensure longevity. A common choice for bibles is 40gsm to 70gsm (grams per square meter) paper weight, depending on the desired thickness and durability.

Children's bible stories size: 5.25 x 7.75 inches, is perfect for children to read and hold on hand.

Pocket Size: This compact size, typically measuring around 4.25 x 6.25 inches and 6 x 8.75 inches. Both are perfect for individuals who want to carry their bibles with them wherever they go. It easily fits in handbags, backpacks, or even pockets.

Perfect binding is a cost-effective and versatile binding method commonly used for paperback books. It involves gluing the pages together and attaching them to the cover with a strong adhesive. Perfect binding allows for easy opening and lays flat when in use, making it ideal for bibles that will be frequently referred to.

Case binding, also known as hardcover binding, is a more durable and premium option for bibles. It involves sewing the pages together and attaching them to a rigid cover. Case bound bibles are known for their sturdiness and longevity, making them suitable for bibles that will be used for generations.


The choice between perfect binding and case bound depends on factors such as budget, desired durability, and intended usage. At BookPrintingChina, we offer both binding methods and can help you determine the best option for your custom bibles.


Post-Press Finishes

To add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your custom bibles, various post-press techniques can be employed. Here are some popular techniques used in bible book printing:

bible finishing

Foil Stamping: Foil stamping involves impressing metallic or colored foil onto the cover or spine of the book. This technique adds a luxurious and eye-catching element to your bibles, making them stand out.

Emboss/Deboss: Embossing and debossing are techniques used to create a raised or recessed design on the cover or spine of the book. This adds texture and visual interest to your bibles, enhancing their overall appeal.

Brush Edge: Brush edging involves applying colored paint or gilding to the edges of the pages. This technique adds a beautiful finishing touch to your bibles, making them visually stunning from all angles.

At BookPrintingChina, we have a team of skilled craftsmen experienced in various post-press techniques. We can help you select the most suitable techniques to elevate the visual impact of your custom bibles.


Artwork Tips

The artwork design of your custom bibles plays a crucial role in capturing attention and creating a memorable reading experience. Here are some tips to consider when designing artwork for your bibles:

Correct size: Make sure your file is in the correct size before sending it to bible printing company.

Image resolution: all images used in your bible design must be saved out at 300dpi for the highest quality printed result.

Color format: Your file must be saved out in CMYK color format to ensure print correctly.

Bleed: If you have any artwork that runs to the edge of paper, you need to set up a 0.125 inches bleed to all four sides of your artwork.

Outlined fonts: Outline your fonts in Illustrator or Photoshop, and do the same in Indesign or package your Indesign file to send over.

File types: Usually, we prefer PDF file, but also accept Illustrator or Photoshop and Indesign files.
