If you would like the endpapers printed then you could supply a pattern or solid colour for those. The front endpapers: This a two-page file with two double-page spreads at twice the width of your text pages. Page 1 is the reverse of the endpaper so keep the right-hand half of that page blank because it's glued to the inside cover. Page 2 is the first spread when you open the book's cover. Download the template guide here (this is for A5 but you can follow it for any size and adjust the measurements accordingly)
The back endpapers. Again, this a two-page file with two double-page spreads at twice the width of your text pages. Page 1 is the reverse of the endpaper so keep the left-hand half of that page blank because it's glued to the inside back cover. Page 2 is the last spread before you close the book's back cover.

The inside text pages - your main content. This is supplied as single pages rather than spreads and in reading order. Our video guide showcases many page layout ideas that really work for children's books, photography books and high end coffee table books.
All files need crop marks and 3mm bleed, please. When you export from Indesign to pdf choose PDFX/1A. You can choose this from the top drop down menu when you export to PDF. We won't go to print with the bleed so adding it from the start saves time.
