Is it illegal to create/make up a quote to give to a company that said they will try and match anything else that I can find?

Because the books are not printed onto the page sizes as you see finished in the book.

Pages are printed on a sheet of bigger paper up with 8 - 16 other pages.

The bigger sheets are then folded, bound and then the folded edges are cut off allowing the pages to turn freely.

If the book is not in total multiples of 8 (ish) this will result in the amount of blanks at the end of the book.
