    Hey Kim,

    Unfortunately, when you choose b/w interior, all pages will be printed in b/w regardless of whether you have color or black and white images or illustrations. The only way to get your book printed in color is to choose color interior. What you are asking about is what the book industry refers to as: "tipping in" and IngramSpark does not "tip in" extra pages for the purpose of printing color images or illustrations. This technique is not available in most POD platforms. You'll have to look for this feature/option with an offset press or other POD that offers this.

    Hope you find this helpful. :-)

    -- Eric

    I have used https://www.printondemand-worldwide.com/ for such jobs. They are totally POD.

    Thank you both! Yes, "Tipping-in" was the term I was looking for. I'll keep it in mind for the future. For now, I'll just stick with Ingram Spark and convert the images to grayscale. Thanks again!

    There is another term, "color inlay".

    For the maps in colours. There are a few trim sizes where you can print inside the cover as well and that is in colour: Dublex cover.

    It is spelled duplex color, sorry! You can find it in the TrimSizeMatrix.pdf

    I no longer can find the trim size matrix as a separate file on IS, but it is at the end of the "file-creation-guide.pdf"

    When you select the right trim size and 'duplex' you will be able to download a 2 page cover template.
