  1. For your back cover and front cover: the “Page Height” and “Page Width” of your board book covers are the same as the corresponding dimensions of the inside pages of your board book. See the guide below.
  2. Add your book’s spine in your cover file. To calculate the width of your spine, use our spine calculator below
  3. Your cover file should include 0.125 inches of bleed around the edge of your cover artwork. Note that this bleed area will be trimmed off during production. As such, make sure to keep all important text and graphics 0.125 inches away from the bleed area.
