These standard size (5.5 x 8.5, 6 x 9, 8.5 x 11) book templates show how your inside and cover files should be formatted. Whether you are an author doing it yourself or a graphic designer working for the author, our templates give the proper guidelines on how the files should be formatted to ensure your books will be printed properly.
These specified margins and bleeds are essential in making sure your finished books have centered text, both on the insides and cover. Our template guideline mainly ensures that when we go to do a final knife trim at the end, the text will not get trimmed off or end up too close to the edge of the page. It also keeps the paragraphs from going to far into the middle of the book, making it hard to read and making the reader have to really open up your book at the spine.
