Christy,

Greetings from PrestoPhoto!

You do not need to apply a template to a page in the Designer unless you want to. For full-bleed pages, template usage is not required. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BmpJAi78fXg&list=UUgWmJwU2t0SRxjGkHaEVzGA&index=11&feature=plcp

It is important however to make sure that you are accounting for bleed when ordering a mini-book (any book 6x9 or smaller).

There is an automatic trim that occurs during production to ensure that all pages are flush. This trim is more aggressive on mini-books due to their small size. We suggest to keep all vital content within 1/2" from all sides, and consider this the "Caution Area." We do not guarantee any content that falls underneath the Light Pink mini-book crop guide (1/2") / Caution area. You can learn more about this here: http://www.prestophoto.com/wiki/Cropping+And+Bleed

All non-vital/background content should be extended to the edge of each page. All vital content (text and faces) should be kept within the Light Pink mini-book Crop-guide.

Here is a great screencast that will explain all of our crop-guides: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8Ksz1k8Djs&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL

People will often apply the auto-fit template to their mini-books to account for trim. http://www.prestophoto.com/designer/template/2

Do you have a book option that already has the full-bleed template for all pages? I found it cumbersome to have to drag that layout for each page of my 5x5 softcover book.
