Printed books require PDF files formatted to the correct trim size and specifications. We're not able to print from ebook files. In order to print copies of your book, you will need to have your manuscript formatted for print. BookBaby offers Interior Design and Formatting services provided by our team of professional book designers.
You'll also need a different file for your printed book's cover. A printed book requires a front cover, back cover, and spine all templated at the correct size. If your ebook already has a great front cover, our designers can complete the print cover for you, creating the back cover and spine. Reach out to our Publishing Specialists to learn more: email@example.com or by phone at 877-961-6878 (9am-8pm ET, Mon-Fri).
If you plan to prepare your print files yourself, please take a look at our guide to preparing graphics files: http://www.bookbaby.com/pages/pdf/book-printing-preparation-checklist.pdf
You'll also need a customized cover template, which you can download from your project center after creating and saving a project quote at bookbaby.com/pricing.
