Do I have to state which country the book was printed?

Country of Origin

Was your book born in the USA? If your self published book is not manufactured in the U.S., you must state the country where the book was printed. You not only have to state the country, but the size of the type that tells the country of origin (printing) cannot be in a size any smaller than the name of the publisher as it appears on the copyright page. If you do not do this, you could have serious trouble getting your books imported into this country.

*If you have a jacket, the same "printed in" line must appear on it, so you must incorporate this information into your book jacket design.
