Does anyone have experience with how much a full page colored image would add the the final cost of a book?

When choosing your ink and paper type:

  • Choose a color ink option if any images in your book are supposed to print in color. For paperbacks, you can choose between premium color and standard color. Standard color ink is not available for hardcover.
  • Set up a separate book on your KDP Bookshelf if you have a black-and-white and color version of your book.
  • Remember that the cost for books printed in color is higher. Paper type doesn't affect printing costs.


i used the calculator to find the difference in cost from a standard print book with black and white to a book with color.
for what i figured there was about 2x the printing cost for standard color and 4 times the printing cost for premium colors.
