Notes about our Perfect Binding Style Book Template

Here are some notes about the settings we put in and the reference layer we have on our templates:

  • Reference Layer - Shows how artwork will be affected by the spine of the book. Imagine looking at a softcover book when you open it up and look at the spine. The best designs take this loss of print area into account.
  • Margins: .25" on outside edges. Purple line. This is a comfortable margin to make sure that our production team is set up for success and also helps your product look more professional.
  • Bleeds: .125". Red line. Background images need to extend all the way to the red line.
