lease note that the size you select must match the page size of the interior file you are uploading. Binding types available depend on the number of pages in the book.
The book is printed and hence maintained in two parts, the interior and the cover. Interior of the book includes the complete content of the book - everything except cover, everything that should be printed on the interior pages. These include table of contents, preface, foreword, title page, copyright information and anything else you want in the book. The file must be prepared according to our specifications. Remember that we do not add anything from our side to the book before printing. So, the interior file should be prepared to include everything you want printed inside the book. Even if you have taken our formatting or editing services, while submitting the book you must make sure that the files are exactly how you want them printed.

We do not check submissions for all possible mistakes. We only look at the technical aspect, which determine whether or not the book can be printed. We do not check the content or design of the book. You must make sure that content is edited to your satisfaction and designed correctly before you submit your book for publishing. Apart from that you should also make sure that the files are according to our specifications, have the correct size, correct DPI, right pagination, empty pages where needed, fonts embedded and suitable margins, among other things. If you do not find printed copy satisfactory, you can make corrections in the file and update them. It is recommended that you order one copy of the book as sample before opting for distribution or a larger print run.
