Cust Photo Book Cover

WHEN CREATING YOUR CUSTOM PHOTO BOOK COVER, KEEP IN MIND:

  • The dimensions below include a .75" bleed/wrap around the perimeter of the cover.
  • In positioning a design on the spine of the book, account for the width of the spine in relation to the book width – the more pages, the thicker the spine will be.
