Printed Book Cover Offset!

Hi,Can anyone help me with this problem? I received the first copy of my book in hardback form. I was more than happy with the quality of the print and the paper etc. What I did find, the front cover was not centered the way it looked on Booksmart! Is this a problem for both soft cover and hard cover or is it just the hardcover sleeve that has this problem. I need to know so that I can reset the book and hopefully that will resolve the problem. However if it is different for the soft cover layout, then I do have a headache from h—-. Malcolm

Did you right click on the image in booksmart and select the ‘align centre’ option?

 I did that and my images were always centred.

I too had the same problem. i created all my pages in photoshop and the cover was centered. unfortunately when i got the book printed the cover wasn’t centered…. otherwise, as above i was very pleased with the results.
