on Apr 27, 2012 at 6:35:18 pm

Hi,

Im designing a childrens short story book, with images and a little text. Im going to use an online service, this service has WORD templates and they suggest a 19x19 CM book for this type of children books.

I have got a desing down using the word template but I would like to find a template for Indesign, the basic layout so I can work on it.

Im new to Indesign so if someone can help me to design a 19x19 cm book layout?

thanks!

Are you looking for a literal template that already has drop zones, styling for the page layouts, styles for the text and paragraphs, image place holders, etc? Or do you just need help setting up a template that has 19"x19" pages and the appropriate bleeds, margins and number of pages?

If you are looking for the later, no problem, I can walk you through that. If you are looking for the first, I don't think you will find that. That's what designers get paid to do.

Hi Matt,

Yes, would appreciate any help you can offer to setup 19"x19" cm pages and the appropriate bleeds, margins and number of pages....At the moment my story has 12 pages...I dont know if this is okay as I dont know if I need to add a page or take one away so it makes up the book...

Ok thanks and please help me out to setup the document in InDesign!

Regards,

Jose.

The settings are all part of the document setup, which you can define when you setup the new file. From InDesign, go File > New > and then you want to input the size as 19cm x 19cm. The margins and bleeds will be defines by the company printing the book for you, but normally a 1/4" margin and a 1/8" bleed are acceptable. Again, check with the printer, as sometimes they require a larger size on either the bleed or margin.

For me, I use a 3mm bleed in the document set-up. Pretty easy to do.

Hi thanks for the info. Ive been speaking with the internet service that will publish my story and this is the info Ive gotten:

margins:

On the side of the binding 3 cm and 2 cm on the opposite side.

On the top and bottom around 2 or 3 cm, whichever I prefer.

How do I set this up? does it sound right for a 19 cm x 19 cm book?

its a childrens picture book, short story.

thanks!!
