Booklet Tutorial

Watch the below video tutorial to see how easy it is to upload, drag and drop your booklet designs into place for print.

Print bleeding

To accommodate for print bleeding (denoted by the red border area on image), there is an additional 18 pixels (3mm) removed from each dimension (each side based on a 150DPI image), therefore you will see 18 pixels cut off each side of your images that you upload. If your image upload is 300DPI, then the bleeding area for each side would multiply to 36px (2x(18px)). This is industry practice to allow printing to the edge without seeing inconsistent white unprinted areas.
