BookLocker Print and Ebook Publishing, Sales & Distribution


BookLocker Color POD Program

A. Setup Fees

For the absolute best quality, these books must be set-up in InDesign and converted to pdf. Our designer formats color interior books in InDesign. You will only need to send your book text and interior graphics and our designer will put the pieces together…with your guidance, of course. You will work directly with our designer to ensure the book is formatted to your liking.

Booklocker.com set-up: $475

Interior Design Fees:

$5.50 per page ($100 minimum)

plus $6.50 per image

Original Cover Design: $200 for paperback; $300 for hardcover

B. List Prices – PAPERBACK COLOR INTERIOR

Up to 24 pages: $11.95

49-100 pages 22.95

Estimate an additional 20 cents per page if your book exceeds 200 pages.
