After I print a single copy of my book, can I choose to print more?
Absolutely! We recommend printing a single copy of your book as a great way to check out the look and feel of your book before committing to a full order. That way, you can hold your book in your hands, just like your readers will, and see if your printed book is just how you envisioned, from the cover design to the size.
How should I prepare my book for printing?
Preparing your book for printing is much simpler than you might think. First, you'll want to decide on your trim size, binding style, and paper stock option. You'll have the option to download your book cover and interior text templates, as well. Then, you'll prepare your interior text PDF file, upload, and checkout!
