Pay attention to trim guidelines

When our printers are assembling your project, the page edges of your book are trimmed so that all pages will stack with perfect edge alignment within the book. A common mistake we see is placing content on part of the page that will be trimmed off during this process.

Each of our book-making tools offers trim guidelines to help you see approximately where the trimming will take place. For information specific to your project, please review details for whichever tool you are using:
