How to properly create files
If you wish to print saddle stitched brochures and magazines, you need to create one file, by starting from the template that you can download on the product pages. Let’s see how.
1. Graphic File
1a. No cover SAME PAPER AS THE INTERIOR
If you choose this option, all the paper used for your magazine will be the same (that is, cover included). In this case, the first and last two pages of our template will be your cover.
1b. Cover with different paper from the interior
If you choose this option, you will have a different kind of paper for the cover. In this case, the first and last two pages of our template will be your cover.
In the same file you will also find the first two pages of the interior: you will only have to add the same number of pages that you indicated in the order, customise them with your graphic designs and then export the PDF file for a perfect result!
The file for the interior of the book shall be made of single pages with 5mm bleed.
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: 300dpi
