Our Mass Production Board Book Formats

We are a versatile, high volume, board book manufacturer without the delays and hassles of dealing with overseas suppliers. Long term customer relationships and daily customer interaction are extremely important to our success. Pint Size Productions is the only mass-production manufacturer of board books located in the United States. Competing with the pricing from overseas factories is indeed a challenge so we offer a few standard formats for small mass production orders of 1,000+ and can accommodate many other trim sizes and page counts in larger quantities.

We print, die-cut, and custom bind everything in-house at our factory in Western New York. We also offer a digital inkjet printed board book solution for single book orders for a few formats as well as a grouping of blank board books for those who want to hand create their own original masterpiece or scrapbook.

Stop! Make sure you know the difference between
a “page” and a “spread“!

In this image, we have highlighted a page.

Board Book Page

A page is the left or right side of a spread.

Board Book Spread

A spread is a set of 2 pages viewed together. It’s how you see the board book when it’s opened and you see the left and right pages. This is also referred to as a “reader spread”.

How many pages and spreads will you need?

We’ve found that the terms “page” and “spread” might be confusing. We’ve set up an example of how we count pages and spreads of our board books using our 7″ x 7″ 12 page board book as an example.

Step 1: Determine your Page Count

Count the number of individual interior pages you
need, add a front and back cover to determine your total pages.

What's a Page?

Board Book PageA page is the left or right side of the spread.

1 Front Cover+ 1 Back Cover + # of Interior Pages  = Total Pages
Ex: 1 Front Cover + 1 Back Cover + 10 Inside Pages = 12 Pages

Step 2: Determine your Spread Count

After you have determined the total the number of pages, divide that number by 2 to get the number of spreads you will need.

What's a Spread?

Board Book SpreadA spread is a set of 2 pages viewed together.It’s how you see the board book when it’s open and both pages are showing.

Total Pages ÷ 2 = Total Spread Count
Example: 12 Pages ÷ 2 = 6 Spreads

We're so sorry,
mass production quote requests
are still ON HOLD.

 

 

Thank you for your interest in our USA board book factory. Our production schedule continues to be extremely busy and as most manufacturers, we are still experiencing some challenges with our supplies and skilled workforce needs. Due to these challenges along with large annual order commitments from many of our longtime clients, our production schedule is very busy. In order to maintain customer expectations and meet their ship date needs we are holding off on providing estimates to new clients. However, we are working very hard to accommodate the needs of existing clients. If you are an existing client who has mass produced with Pint Size, please email your contact at Pint Size. If you are a prospective new client, please check back with us at the end of September.

Please note, this does not affect our
individual digitally printed online board book orders.
