Do's and Don'ts
Follow these examples to avoid common custom cover pitfalls:
Why do I see a red margin around my design?
The red margin signifies the are which may not appear in your final print. This is known in the print industry as 'bleed'. If you wish to have your cover printed edge-to-edge, fill the entire design including the red margin. But know that anything in the red margin may not appear on your book.
The most important thing is that you don't include anything important, like a name or part of a logo in that red margin area, as it might not appear on the final cover. Please note that your design will not be perfectly centered on your book, it can be as much as 0.5cm off. This becomes most obvious if you include a big block of color or a border which is almost as large as the book and is close to, but not within, the red margin.
And no, the red margin won't actually get printed on your book. It is only visible to you as the designer.
