General Artwork Tips and Specifications

Page Headings - Odd and Even Pages

Artwork without Bleed

Artwork Tips and Specifications

  • Artwork should always be supplied as a 1-Up multiple page file (preferably a press ready PDF file) with the front cover as page one, and the back cover as the last page.
    For a 100 page book, this should be one file with 100 pages and NOT as 100 separate files.


    Please do not supply artwork as the following:

    • Multi-page spreads
    • Pages imposed 2-Up
    • Separate files for each individual page

  • Please ensure that the artwork is the correct page size.
    For example, if you have ordered an A4 book, please do not supply A5 sized artwork.

  • In your artwork, the front cover should be the first page and the back cover should be the last page.

  • Please ensure that your artwork has the correct number of pages.
    For example , when ordering a 100 page book, your supplied artwork needs to have exactly 100 pages. If your design has less than 100 pages please add blank pages to make up the 100 page total.

Page Headings - Odd and Even Pages

  • When creating your artwork, please be aware that after a book is bound, even numbered pages are always on the left hand side, and odd numbered pages are always on the right hand side (see diagram below).

    If you require certain pages (headings, menus, diagrams) to be on a specific side of your book, please ensure you take this into account when designing your artwork.

    Further to this, before approving a proof for approval, we always recommend our customers carefully check to make sure important pages are placed on the correct side (even or odd).

Creating Artwork (bleed not possible)

Please note: It is not possible to have bleed (printing right to the edge of the page) with wire bound books. As bleed is not possible and artwork must be supplied:

  • At the exact finished size (e.g. A4 = 210 x 297mm), and
  • All design elements must be kept at least 10mm from the edge of the page

Please refer to the diagram below (click to enlarge), and we always recommend that our guideline templates are used to create your artwork.
