Use the Export Setting Preset file that comes in the InDesign templates download.

I use sRGB, they say that works OK in the PDF to Book Publishing Guide (be sure to read it ! )

The bleed and trim marks don’t show on the finished PDF.

You have to turn your PDFs into the PDF/X-3 format.

Use these directions:

What do you do if you are NOT using the template? Does blurb provide the PDF-X3 settings so I can check and see if I have set it up correctly?

I’m curious about this too – I have an ancient version of InDesign, so I set up my own template. How do I apply/use the settings file I downloaded from Blurb?
