There is no “silver bullet” for proper publication design or format. However, there are some very basic rules to get you ready to go:

Some basic ideas to make your publication special (some ideas for Hardbound {HB} or Sofbound {SB} only)

  • Use colored paper (to match cover) as section dividers.

  • Use clipart or stock photography to liven up pages where you don’t have personal items.

  • Do add other things besides text.

  • Place information you might otherwise place on the endpapers (HB) or inside of cover (SB) as the frontice piece and the last printed page in the book for economy.

  • Add a CD or DVD of extra material – even color photos for printed b/w in book.

  • HB: Match your end papers to the cover (main) color.

  • HB: Use custom printed end sheets (end papers).

  • HB: If offered, use stock pre-printed end papers such as marbleized, etc.

  • HB: Consider dust jackets versus color covers.

  • SB: Print on the inside of the cover.

  • Post Publication: Hand number (or stamp) each book.
