Info for file setup

Paperback book print
file setup information

How to supply your print files
As with all of our products, we ask that the file is supplied as single individual pages, not double pages.
Important - your cover
Your cover is made up of four pages - a front cover, an inside front cover, a back cover, and an inside back cover.
Bleed
We ask for a 3mm bleed on all paperback books. Please do not include any important content within this area.
Format and orientation
You can choose either an A4 (210 x 297 mm) or A5 (148 x 210 mm) format, and a landscape or portrait orientation.
Binding
The binding options available for paperback books are perfect bound or stapled. For books with fewer than 25 pages, we recommend printing as a booklet.
Please note:
These available binding options are entirely dependent upon the number of pages and paper weight selected for your order. This is because there comes a point where the combined paper thickness is too much to effectively staple or stitch together, and will instead need to be held together by adhesive (otherwise known as ‘perfect binding’).

The opposite is true if there are too few pages for perfect binding to work. Our dynamic ordering system is smart enough to know when a limit has been reached, and will automatically switch to the required binding option.

Spine (for Perfect Binding)
If you choose perfect binding you have the option to upload the spine as a separate print 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.
The spine will also need a 3mm bleed at the top and bottom.
Completing your order
Before you can complete your order, you must make sure all page placeholders have been completed. For example, if you are ordering 32 pages, all 32 boxes must be filled. If you do not have enough content, you must add blank pages.
