I am looking for a mix of experience and value


We have a book of 100 pages called Surfing Life Waves. It has recently been translated into Russian. We have successfully published the book on CreateSpace but are having some problems getting the formatting correct for Lightning Source (Ingram Spark).

The book artwork is complete and ready to go. It has been designed using Adobe InDesign CC. We just need the book to be correctly sized with the right amount of bleed / slug etc to satisfy their upload requirements.

The book is Standard Color 8.5 x 8.5 in (216 x 216mm) Case Laminate on White. I can provide all print specifications to you. I will also provide the freelancer with our complete book in InDesign along with all assets (images, fonts etc).

The book is correctly formatted to 8.5 x 8.5 but we are struggling to understand their bleed / gutter requirements.

Ideally you will have worked with InDesign and Lightning Source / Ingram Spark before.
