Do you provide a template for the cover or interior?

Can I get a cover template?

Bookmobile’s provides templates for covers: paperbacks, dust jackets, hardcover cases, and spine foils. Our cover templates are PDF files with measurements, they are not dynamic or proportionate. But I promise they are easy to use! 

First, we need designed and print-ready PDF files (one file for the cover, back/spine/front, and one file for the interior) for printing. Our file guidelines are here. Please take a look! We do not offer interior page templates.

This video will walk you through how to apply the measurements in your Bookmobile cover template PDF to your InDesign cover file, spine width and bleeds included!

You don’t have to use Adobe InDesign for layout, but our guidelines assume you are. If you can create a PDF from another application, that’s fine, just make sure it meets the requirements of the bulleted list on the main support page (scroll down).
