Your templates have really helped me to move forward on a stalled book project I began a while ago. I do appreciate your work.
Thank you for liking our templates 🙂
CAN i ADJUST IT TO FIT 8.5X11
You can do it but you’ll have to adjust everything manually then.
நன்றி வாழ்த்துக்கள் வாழ்கவளமுடன்
Thank you for this!
You’re most welcome 🙂
How do I actually save it as a pdf? The margins are off for an 8 1/2 x 11. It is chopped off inside the pdf viewer. Thank you.
Please use Ms Word’s built-in option “Save as PDF” for converting into PDF. Everything will then look fine, thank you.
If I need to increase the page numbers and spine so that the spine is 1.78cm what do I do?
Hello, if you need to increase the number of pages then you will have to manually adjust the layout as Microsoft Word does not support auto layout adjustment. Thank you.
I am a novice to this bookcover projects. I have two books published but I needed help for the covers of both books. I wish to learn this so I do not have to depend on others to do something I should know how to do myself. I am a retired female and writing is what I love doing. I need instructions on “how to create a bookcover” on a disc that I may refer to it as I need instructing. Is this possible?
Hi, Unfortunately we don’t have any complete tutorial for designing a book cover from scratch! However, you can use this book cover following the instructions in the short video available on the page. If you want more predesigned book covers then you can find or even create them on Canva, hope it helps. Thank you.
Awesome templates. I plan to use them but just one question on clarity of pdf. Is it better to use Print instead of Save As for better quality pdf?
Thanks, Niti! Microsoft Word’s “Save As” also produces print-ready & high-res PDF. However, if you need some advanced options for print production of PDF then virtually printing it through the “Print” dialog box would definitely be a best choice, thank you.
It appears that your book cover template might work for me. Finished my memoir and want to do the cover. Making a cover is becoming overwhelming to me. But your tutorial looks like it can help me. My question is would your template work for Lulu Publishing?
Thank you for your assistant.
Hi, yes, this cover will work for Lulu Publishing! However, different self-publishing companies have their own print requirements, so please must also check them, thank you.
I love the way you design simple and easy to master it. Thanks alot
Thank you, Robert!
