I'm also looking at using Blurb for a magazine, so an answer to these basics could be appreciated.
Magazine - Printing on the inside covers
I have copied my pages from a master InDesign file and separated out the cover from the interior pages. The removal of the cover has now left me with questions about how the printing will handle my pages. I would like my first page to be printed on the inside of the cover making page 1-2 a two-page spread. In InDesign, now that the cover has been removed, my left pages are displayed on the right and the right pages are displayed on the left. Page 1 is a single and page 2-3 is a two-page spread. I am worried this will reflect how the magazine is printed. Please tell me that the spreads will print 1-2, 3-4, 5-6, etc. and not 1, 2-3, 4-5, 6-7, etc. as they are displayed now. This is very confusing when designing in your template, however, I understand the importance of separating the cover file.

I am in the same situation. Wishing to print a magazine as a magazine is printed using the inside cover and the inside back page.
Is it possible to leave " the cover off" and have the front cover as the first page of the "inside pages".
I want to know if the first inside page will be blank.
Very important to the design!
If you use our InDesign plugin, you will generate two InDesign files to create your project (a pages file and a cover file). The cover file will be a two page document allowing you to design the cover as well as design the inside of the front and back cover. The first page of your magazine however will be the first page of your cover file. If you do not design anything for the inside cover, it will arrive blank after you order it.
This is exactly the question I am struggling with. I would appreciate another answer with more details on whether or not the inside of the cover can be made the first page of the pages section. Please help! Thank you!
Blurb charges 10 us dollars for a magazine Ebook and do not include the inside cover ? I mean during the coding process, who on earth would think, lets ignore part of the product, and continue to charge the client for a segment of their design. Personally, this drives me to look towards other publishers.Not to mention it took them over a WEEK to respond and inform me inside magazine covers are not printed in EBooks........and this is standard.
One word LAME.
