There are many programs out there that you can use to assemble your print-ready files, but the most common and easiest to use are Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. They can be a bit daunting to learn at first, but if you follow the steps outlined in the book template tutorials below, you’ll be an expert in no time.
Please note: these guides are for creating a template of the interior pages of your project. For help in designing your cover please consult the appropriate guide.
These are not the only acceptable programs, however. If you’re more comfortable using something else like Manga Studio then feel free to use that as well. As long as the files are submitted in an appropriate format and you follow our printing setup guides then you’ll be able to move forward with prepress.
