Things to consider when setting up your files:

  • There should be no critical elements printing close to final trim. Use 1/4" as a "safe zone" around all sides of the page and or cover.
  • Any image/picture that extends to final trim must bleed 1/4" beyond final trim. Text on bleed pages should not be closer than 1/8" to final trim.
  • To maintain a consistent professional look use "Master Pages" for common book elements such as headers, footers, and tabs.
  • Use organized and meaningful file names. example: Title_revision number.pdf Note: File names should not exceed 21 alphanumeric characters, please do not use special characters in file names.
  • Save yourself time, money, and hassle! If you are not sure how to setup your book consult your sales representative with any questions, we are more than happy to help.
  • For images - Both greyscale and color - Please use a minimum of 300dpi and a maximum of 600dpi.
