Cover File Setup Guides
If you’re printing a cover with PrintNinja, you’ll want to read this file setup guide. The better you understand the process of setting up your files, the easier your printing process will be – and the less corrections you need to make to your file, the faster you’ll get your final product! Assembling your cover file for print is a slightly different process than setting up your inside pages, and varies greatly depending on your selected binding – saddle-stitched, wire-bound, and spiral-bound have different requirements than perfect bound, case bound, or dust jackets. Here are some specifications for different types of binding:
Saddle-stitched books: please include the front and back cover pages in your interior page file.
Wire-bound books: please include the front and back cover pages in your interior page file.
Spiral-bound books: please include the front and back cover pages in your interior page file.
All other book formats: please see the links below for more specific cover file setup guides relating to your binding type.
