Cover Submission Instructions
We recommend using InDesign or an image processing program like
Photoshop to create your cover. Cover files should be saved as PDFs before submission.
After you have created your cover PDF, thoroughly review it to check for errors and to make sure that
it complies with the Cover File Requirements. Once you
have placed a deposit for a print order, submit your cover PDF, along with your interior PDF, using our
Send Files Tool.
