Prepare your work for printing by saving high-quality JPEG files with an embedded color profile.

  • We recommend saving your files at a JPEG quality of 10 or higher in Photoshop, 90% in Lightroom, or the equivalent in your editing tool.
  • Most products are printed at 300 DPI, and we’ll automatically resize your files for printing. For more precise control, you can resize your files and apply any sharpening before submitting.
Designing Softcover Book Pages

Sizing Templates & Photoshop
Use our sizing templates to create custom designs in Photoshop, then upload them to ROES to order.

Perfect Binding is what sets this apart from our other book lines.

This binding style is when pages are adhered to the cover along the spine to create a strong yet flexible spine with a clean profile. Please note images placed along the seam will extend into the gutter.

Softcover books are great marketing tools, from a printed what to expect guide or style guide for a high school senior or marketing brochures created in partnership with local vendors to show potential clients your best work.
