I have a word document that I need formatted per my requirements and converted to pdf. Page size adjustment with proper margins with proper bleeds and setbacks. It's a small book with covers. Final trim is 5.5x8.5.
Message I received from my printer:
Job is quoted for 5.5” x 8.5” final trim; we would have to disproportionally scale 8.5” x 11.0” supplied pages at ~65% horizontally and ~77% vertically for fit. All content would then appear “stretched” somewhat vertically in print. If the interior text is still in preliminary stages we would strongly recommend the native document page layout size be re-set to 5.5” x 8.5” to represent final trim, so no scaling would be required on our side.
At 56 pages, the interior text PDF is about 100 pages under the quoted page counts.
The front and back cover pages appear to be formatted for a 6.0” x 9.0” page trim, but do not include the required full 0.125” bleed on all outer margins. The sub-title on the front cover is too close to the face margin; we require a minimum 0.1875” set back margin for all integral artwork and text. No spine copy is included.
