Book Thickness Estimator

A few words of warning about using this “estimator”:


  • Calculations based on our house stocks are the most accurate, as we regularly measure and update the thickness of these paper stocks.
  • Calculations based on generic stocks use average density values reported worldwide, and may not be correct for a specific paper or board.
  • Colours does not warrant the accuracy of the information provided. We recommend that you use this “estimator” as a guide only. The most accurate method to determine the thickness of a book is to construct a dummy or mockup and actually measure its thickness with calipers or a ruler. Please contact us if in doubt – we are more than happy to manufacture a dummy book specific to your requirements.
