Books Printing File Formats
We request the entire layout and formatting of the inside pages be saved as a PDF file with all fonts and images embedded, and saved at 300 dpi resolution. The inside pages should be created to the finished trim size of the book and saved as one complete PDF file containing all inside pages.
Add blank pages wherever you feel is appropriate to end up with an (even) number of pages. The outside cover should be composed together as one separate file including the front, spine, and rear cover. Extend an .125 inch bleed all around the perimeter of the composed book cover. Save as a PDF file with all fonts and images embedded, and saved at 300 dpi resolution for a best quality books printing.
1.Always supply as single pages, never double page spreads.
2.Paperbacks and hardbacks require a spine. The size is defined by the number and weight of pages. A spine under 4mm is considered unsuitable for text.
3.Ensure your book has sufficient margins. We recommend 10-15mm top, bottom and outside edge and 15-20mm on the binding edge.
4.If you are including page numbers, ensure they are not placed on the binding edge.
5.Covers should be supplied as separate files. If not supplied separately, it may affect the running order of your books printing.

colours that extend to the edge of the page – check diagram.
3.For example, an A5 book’s dimensions are 210mm x 148mm; with 5mm bleed it will be 220mm x 158mm
4.The extra 5mm bleed will be cut off, any important text or images should not appear in or near this area.
