Follow these four steps to print your book.
Step 1 of 4: Write your book and create your book cover

You write, edit, design and proof your book and we'll help you print it.

To print your book you must create two files: one for the cover and one for the interior pages of your book.

If you need help along the way, consider hiring a writer, editor or designer.
Step 2 of 4: Create your book files
Option 1

If you are comfortable with advanced document formatting, follow our updated Book Printing Guide For Authors (PDF) to prepare your book files for printing. The guide details how to format your book, your book cover, and any images you choose to include.
Option 2

We also provide templates to help make your book look as professional as possible.

Choose a book size and download the two templates below. All templates are in Microsoft Word format (.doc) and should be opened on a Microsoft Windows PC.
Small Book
5.5 x 8.5 inches (13.97 x 21.59 centimeters)

Download small book cover template (.doc)
Download small book interior pages template (.doc)
Medium Book
6 x 9 inches (15.24 x 22.86 centimeters)

Download medium book cover template (.doc)
Download medium book interior pages template (.doc)
Large Book
7 x 10 inches (17.78 x 25.4 centimeters)

Download large book cover template (.doc)
Download large book interior pages template (.doc)

Follow the instructions found in the two templates you downloaded. Insert all your text and images into the templates. These templates become the book files that you print. Do not combine these files.

You can work on your book files at home or use the library's computers free of charge. Reserve a computer with Microsoft Word at any branch. If you need advanced design tools, reserve a digital design workstation at the Toronto Reference Library. Advanced design tools include Photoshop, InDesign, Adobe Acrobat Pro, cameras, and scanners.
Option 3

Hire a writer, editor or designer to help you bring your creation to life.
Step 3 of 4: Make an appointment

We must review your book files before you can print. Make an appointment by calling 416-393-7007 or emailing AsquithPress@torontopubliclibrary.ca. We are located in the Digital Innovation Hub at the Toronto Reference Library.

Bring all your files in original format on a USB memory stick. This includes:

    Book files in their original format (e.g. Microsoft Word).
    All images in their highest quality format (largest file size). We recommend 300 dpi TIFF format.

We do not accept files by email.

The assessment takes about 60 minutes to complete. It is your responsibility to correct any problems. Staff will assist by answering your questions but will not make corrections for you.
Step 4 of 4: Pay for your print job

Once we review your book files, we will calculate the cost of your print job based on our printing fees. You must pay a 20% deposit to schedule your book for printing.

You have the option to print a proof copy of your book to review. You can then make minor changes before we print the rest of your print job.

Books are usually ready for pick-up in 5-10 business days.


Printing Fees

    $25.00 setup (per print job)
    $6.00 per book
    $0.04 (4 cents) per page (including blank pages)

Sample Calculation

The price to print 10 copies of a 150-page book is $145.00 ($14.50 per book). This is calculated as follows:

    Setup:

    Per book:
    $60 (10 books x $6.00 per book)
    Per page:
    $60 (10 books x 150 pages x $0.04 per page)
    Total:
