Before You Design

AsukaBook provides tips and suggestions on the layout of your design. These tips are relative to our template guidelines and book specifications. Please review these design tips to ensure you are happy with your final printed product. The AsukaBook staff does briefly review every order for common bleed concerns, gutter loss concerns, and text placement.

Note
By placing an AsukaBook order you take full responsibility for the layout and content of your design.

To ensure that the colours you see on your monitor will closely match your printed book, it is essential to have the appropriate printer profile and a properly calibrated monitor. By placing an AsukaBook order you take full responsibility for the layout, content, and colour in your design.

check your files

AsukaBook has developed the application File Checker which will create a PDF file from your designed files. File Checker is a must use since the PDF created is the only form of file our system allows for an upload of your order. The program will verify resolution, pixel dimension, file names, colour profiles, and number of pages to help ensure a perfect book, in addition to making a PDF file for your new order!

place your order

As we are an internet based company, the most common method for placing a new AsukaBook order is online after logging into your AsukaBook account.

We are happy to accept orders via Mail Order if that is a better option for your studio. You would need to save your designed PDF file(s) onto a CD or DVD and mail them to our office with the proper forms included.
