Creating a trade paperback is an incredible way to highlight your best art, reveal the story progression of your work’s characters, and offer your audience the gift of your story combined with the value of one beautifully bound collection.

KrakenPrint understands that compiling and printing your trade paperback is a monumental and celebratory occasion, and we promise our printing techniques are up to the task. Whether your trade paperback release will be heralded with special paper weights, embossed texture on your book’s cover, or special additions and inserts, KrakenPrint can offer you stellar printing options at every turn.

Before clicking on the Get a Quote button, and we highly suggest you do, it will be helpful for both you and your dedicated KrakenPrint partner to first answer these questions:

  • How many copies of your trade paperback would you like to print?
  • What is the timeframe for your trade paperback printing project?
  • What is your trade paperback printing budget?
  • How do you imagine your finished trade paperback will look and feel?

Need a little inspiration in the “look and feel” department?

“This team stops at nothing to do beautiful printing. Easy to talk to and knowledgable about the printing world, Sam and Jacob are professionals. They are even excited about customizing my book the way I want it. I am extremely happy with the outcome and will be doing all of my printing with them in the future.” – Carla Wyzgala

Violence & Pigtails

“Thank you so much! Really fancy looking, love the spot varnish, the printed pages are crisp as hell, best book I’ve had printed. I’ll definitely go through you guys again!” – Ryan Ottley


“From their customer service, to their impeccable printing, few printers I’ve worked with come even close to their product quality, their printing options, and their heart for comics. Whether you’re getting single issue comics, or hardcover graphic novels, I can recommend no one more that KP. You will not be sorry you chose to work with them.” – Caleb King

Monkey & Dragon

“Holy crap. I could not recommend a more caring, more dedicated, more customer satisfaction and beautiful product focused company than these guys.” – Ali Cantarella


“They were there for us every step of the way. The part I liked the most was that no matter what, they were always just a phone call away…something I took advantage of many times during the process. When the books came in, my jaw dropped…my graphic novel looks as good/better than stuff from the big two! Unbelievable quality.” – David Brown
