How to properly create files
In order to create the wire-o bound books print files, you have to create one file only, starting from the template that you can easily download on the product page!
1. Graphic file
Once the form containing the details of your book is properly filled in, you can download our layout, which is ready to be customised and where the space to be left for the punching of the cover and the interior (about 1.5cm) is indicated: it is advisable not to place any text or important information in this area, because it might be punched.
Please, put the graphic design of the cover and of the interior of the book on the same file and in their reading order.
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"
Pay attention to punchingIn wire-o bound books, it is very important to leave at least 1.5cm without any text or important graphic element, because they could be punched and therefore result unreadable. This space shall be on the left side on odd pages and on the right side on even pages, as shown in the image.
Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any doubt.
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
