Design Tips

  • Color correct and edit your images prior to placing them on the design templates.
  • Open the templates in Photoshop and add desired images, text and embellishments to them.
  • The outer guides indicate the trim/fold line and inner guides mark the center/gutter, spine and divot on their corresponding files. Note that slight shifting can occur during the trimming process. For this reason, we recommend placing your images/graphics beyond the outer guides to guarantee a full bleed, or at least 1/4" inside the outer guide for no bleed.
  • View layout at 100% to check image quality and find and correct any typographical errors.
  • Soft proof your design and images to check any color changes prior to finalizing your layout. Learn more about color management...


Blank Templates

The AsukaBook Photoshop Tool creates blank product template files for you. If you would prefer not to use ABPs, you may download the blank templates instead.

Each blank template is set up with the appropriate size, resolution, color profile, filename, and guide locations specific to the selected product type, size, number of sides and finish. It is critical that you do not change any of the template specifications at any time. If you must change the originally selected product, download the new corresponding set of blank templates and transfer your existing design to them.
