You can drag and drop files from your desktop or upload them from your computer, online file-sharing accounts like Dropbox, or even a web URL. You can upload single files and multi-page files to your orders. Please label your files clearly with names like Front CoverPage 1Page 2, etc., so our system can place your files chronologically. Visit our Print File Setup Guide for more information.

You can upload multiple file types, and we will convert them into high-quality PDFs. We recommend providing your files in CMYK colour mode for the best results. Visit our Colour Guide for Printing and File Formats Support Page to view the complete list of accepted file types.

Bleed is an extension of artwork or colour(s), ensuring no unprinted edges appear when we cut your prints to size, as paper can move slightly during trimming. Most items require a 0.125” bleed, while Hardcover items covers require a 0.8” bleed. You don’t need to include bleed if your pages are white, with no artwork or colour(s) meeting the edge of your page. Visit our Bleed Support Page or contact our team for assistance.

We print pages in groups of four to ensure your page order is correct, except for Hardcover items. If you have an odd number of pages, not divisible by four, you may need to add blank or additional pages. Visit our Page Counts Support Page for more information.

While the reasons an item may be unavailable vary, we treat every scenario on a case-by-case basis. We recommend contacting our team so they can review your quote, identify what's causing the issue, and offer you a similar, available item.

All production facilities create high-quality prints using the same technology and equipment. And sometimes, we may need to print your items at another facility. Items produced at different facilities will be shipped together where possible. Due to limited floor space, we cannot hold items and send them when completed.

We aim to get your order to you by or on the date you choose on our Instant Quote Calculator. While all shipping dates displayed on our website are estimates and not guaranteed, we will inform you at the earliest opportunity if a delay occurs. If you have a deadline, contact our team by phone, and we will try to accommodate. Visit our Shipping and Delivery Support Page for more information.

How to upload your files

 You can upload your files in a way that suits you - as single pages or spreads, individual files for each page, or as a single combined file.

Important - your cover

 Your cover is made up of four pages - a front cover, an inside front cover, a back cover, and an inside back cover.


 We ask for a 1/8" bleed on all booklets. Please do not include any important content within this area.


 The binding options available for booklets are: saddle stitched or stapled, perfect bound, loop bound, or Wire-O bound.

Please note:

 These available binding options are entirely dependent upon the number of pages and paper weight selected for your order. This is because there comes a point where the combined paper thickness is too much to effectively staple or stitch together, and will instead need to be held together by adhesive (otherwise known as 'perfect binding').

 The opposite is true if there are too few pages for perfect binding to work. Our dynamic ordering system is smart enough to know when a limit has been reached, and will automatically switch to the required binding option.

Spine (for Perfect Binding)

 If you choose perfect binding you have the option to upload the spine as a separate print file. The spine depth is calculated and displayed in the shopping cart. If you do not upload a print file for your spine it will be left blank.

 The spine will also need a 1/8" bleed at the top and bottom.

Completing your order

 Before you can complete your order, you must make sure all page placeholders have been completed. For example, if you are ordering 32 pages, all 32 boxes must be filled. If you do not have enough content, you must add blank pages.
