If you are printing your book cover on a regulart 8.5×11 (letter size) printer you will need to set up the printer to tile your work across multiple pages.

  1. Make sure you add at least a margin of .25 inch on all sides of your book cover
  2. When you are finished save your file as a .pdf
  3. Open the .pdf using ADOBE ACROBAT to access the tile option
  4. In ACROBAT go to File>Print and in the ‘Page Size & Handling’ option click on ‘Poster’  make sure that all the scaling its at 100% . Also click on the ‘Cut Marks’ button this will add helpful guidelines that you can use when cutting the separate parts of the book cover
  5. Now print your cover, it will be printed on multiple pages. Use scissors and clear tape to join the pieces together.
