Manga Industry Standards
Manga volumes (or “tankoubon”) in Japan tend to come in a variety of sizes and formats (the most common being 5.04″ x 7.17″ or 5.83″ x 8.2″), but when companies like Tokyopop and Viz started translating them for U.S. consumption they came up with a standard size for most releases as a compromise between the different formats. The options on this page are for U.S. manga editions. PrintNinja can also print your project in the reverse order common with manga. Just make sure to submit your files in order as though you were looking at the volume with the binding on your left, so the first page in the proper reading order would be the last page in your PDF.
