Layflat book print file setup information

You can supply your files in a way that suits you – as single pages or spreads, individual files for each page, or as a single combined file.

When it comes to cover artwork setup, hardcover books are slightly different to our other products. Most covers are made up of four pages – a front cover, an inside front cover, a back cover, and an inside back cover.

The cover for a hardcover book is only two pages – a front cover and a back cover.

The cover on hardback books overhangs the inner pages. To make the cover, we need a very large bleed area on the front, back and spine. We ask for 20mm on all sides. Please do not include any important content within this area.

The spine will also need a 20mm bleed at the top and bottom. If you are uploading a cover spread, you do not need to supply a separate spine file. The spine depth is calculated and displayed in the shopping cart. However, we ask for an extra 5mm bleed either side of the spine depth in your design. If you are uploading single pages.

The spine should be supplied as a separate file. The spine depth is calculated and displayed in the shopping cart. If you do not upload a print file for your spine it will be left blank.

 Within the cover page size we recommend a quiet area or margin of at least 8mm around the edge.
