Ka-Blam Tip o’ the Day — Don’t Forget the Spine
If you’re ordering a square-bound paperback book of over 80 pages, then don’t forget to include a spine file with any text or graphics you want printed on the spine to be included.
Our order form includes a “spine-width” calculator to let you know how wide your spine needs to be based on how many interior pages are in your book.
If your paperback is more than 80 pages then you have room to include text and design elements on the spine. If your paperback is less than 80 pages then we offer no promises that included spine text or design elements will align or be aesthetically pleasing.
For paperbacks of less than 80 pages including a spine file is optional. You can just tell us to make the spine a certain color or to extend the front or back cover onto the spine.
