Booklet Template

Booklet template preview

This press-ready printing template defines proper document size, bleeds, trim marks, and fold/score marks to ensure your booklet is correctly set up. The trimmed document size is 11″ × 17″, which will result in pages sized to 8.5″ × 11″. Bleeds are set to an eighth of an inch (0.125″).

Please see our booklet printing page for pricing and product information.

Instructions

In Illustrator, simply open the .eps files and begin building your booklet, using the guides and layers as a reference point.

In Photoshop, open either the .eps or .pdf files and click 'OK' in the Rasterize dialogue you will see upon opening the files. This will create a rasterized layer from which you can use as a reference as you build your document.

In InDesign, you will need to create a document as follows: Go to File > New > Document. Under Page Size, select Tabloid and click Landscape under Orientation (Or type '17 in' under Width and '11 in' under Height, without the quotes). Under Margins, set all margins to .125 in, and set all bleeds to .125 in. Then click 'Ok' to create the document. Now you may go to File > Place and place our template as your reference point, lining up the red area (the bleed) with the red bleed line in InDesign.

Guidance

On the booklet template, you will see distinct areas:

  • Red denotes the bleed area. If you need graphics that touch edge of your booklet, you will need to extend your artwork into the bleed area. The bleed area will be trimmed from your final product and ensures a proper, final appearance.
  • Green denotes the safety zone. We do not recommend placing any text inside this area as it is directly adjacent to the trim line.
  • Dashed and dotted lines denote score and fold marks. On the booklet template, you will see a vertical dashed line that bisects the document – this is where your booklet is folded.

Inner Pages

Your inner pages will be placed during our preflight process. You need only to build them on the 8.5″ × 11″ Flyer template and we will handle the rest!
