How to properly create files
In order to create Exposed Sewn-Bound Books print files, you will have to create two files. Let’s see how!
1. Cover file
You will have to create two files for the cover, which shall be 4 pages each. The first 4-page file, which is completely printable, will be placed at the beginning of the book, while the second one (that is, the ‘back cover’) – which is, once again, completely printable – will be placed at the end of the book.
2. Interior file
The file for the interior of the book shall be made of single pages with 5mm bleed.
The multipage templates generated by our website are visualised in InDesign with pages which are not placed side by side. If you need to work with pages placed side by side, you can go on FILE > DOCUMENT SETUP and activate the voice "Facing Pages"
Always remember that your file has to comply with the following features that apply to every file:
- 1:1 scale and 5mm bleed for each side
- CMYK colour model
- High-quality PDF
- Images resolution: 300ppi
