Pay attention to trim guidelines

A common mistake we see is when authors place their content too close to the edge of the page, cover, or printed image, where it's at risk of being trimmed off during production.

Each of our bookmaking programs 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:
