How to make a booklet file for printing
Your booklet should be saved as a PDF in A4 size.
Single pages, not spreads. No crop marks or color bars.
We can easily create both A5 and A4 booklets from an A4.
Booklets can be from 8-100 pages and the pages must be divisible by 4. Otherwise we must add blank pages to your document.
This is due to the way books are bound, always in 4 page increments.
Booklets are always bound on the long end, even if you make a horizontal design.
Method 1: Use an app.
Any free app that can generate PDFs is a great way to make a booklet.
If you want to be very precise in layout, make sure to select A4 as your page size and not 8.5 in x 11 in. See Apple’s guide for instructions.
Now you can drag and drop your images onto pages, when you finish just save and export as a PDF to share with us by email.
Method 2: We design it for you.
If you don’t want to design it you can send us all the images and we can create a booklet for you.
It’s easy to do and you can arrange the order of the photos.
Just create a folder on your computer and copy all your images there. Name the images in the order you want them in the booklet.
Most designs have 2 images per page so the images will be arranged like this example:
