Fabrizio,

Greetings from PrestoPhoto!

The spine thickens is determined by the paper type you choose and the amount of pages in your book. The measurements need to be precisely calculated to be correct and so we suggest simply uploading a file that does not include spine or spine text in it's design, and then using our spine text tool to apply your text. You can do this by uploading a full wrap cover or by uploading a separate front and back cover. Here is a screencast that will show you more about this! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCzvd1emPB8&list=UUgWmJwU2t0SRxjGkHaEVzGA&index=8&feature=plcp

Best,

Spine / gutter specs?

Hello. I'm trying a custom made PDF and everything seems to be fine, but for the dustjacket cover. I see that I can upload a single separate PDF which contains both the back, the front cover and the spine, but I can't see how many inches should be the spine width. I suppose it depends on the number of pages and the paper? Thanks.
