Things to think about:
Is the book cover for a paperback style book or for a loose jacket?
Do you know the trimmed page size of the proposed book e.g. A5 (148 x 210 mm)
Do you know the spine width (this will depend on the number of pages in the book and the weight of the paper – your printer should be able to calculate it).
Will your cover pictures bleed, if so, do you know what bleed is?
Is the cover to be printed in black and white, 4 colour or what?
Do you want the cover laminated?
Have you assembled the cover text including, if you need one them do you have an ISBN and bar code.
If you can supply answers to these we can work out a template for you (not that all of these items affect the template).
Thank you so much! I watched and re watched and re watched again the tutorial and I have completed my book cover. I truly appreciate your help! Pura Vida!
