File Format, Layout & Cover Guidelines

For a successful print, we recommend following these upload specifications:

  1. Format: Your file must be in PDF format, with no password protection.
  2. Layout: Make sure that the file comes in single pages, arranged in correct reading order and contains all pages, including four cover pages.
  3. Blank pages: If you would like the inside of the cover pages to be blank, make sure to include blank pages in your PDF file.

Design & Layout Tips

To ensure a polished high-quality print on your booklet, check out these tips.

1. COLORS

Booklets are printed in CMYK. Images in RGB or PANTONE colors will automatically be converted.

2. RESOLUTION

300dpi is the required resolution for booklets. Lower resolution files will affect the quality of the final print.

3. BLEEDS

Make sure to include a bleed of 1/8” (0.125 in) on every side of every page in your print file – to avoid white margins or images that go to the edge of the page.

4. MARGINS

Your text should be placed at least 1/2” (0.5 in) from the margin. Anything less, your text may be too close to the edge of the page or the binding, making it difficult to read.

For your cover paper you can choose from these paper stock options:

Budget matte: 80lb silk coated cover stock, 9.5pt
Premium matte: 100lb silk coated cover stock, 11pt
Budget glossy: 80lb glossy cover stock, 9.5pt
