Book Printing

Not sure if I should go to customer service about this or not as I’m not sure if it’s my fault or printing.

Anyway, first, the reason I’m not sure. I designed my cover through photoshop, not going too nuts, but taking a photo and putting the words on it etc. to give it my own feel. The bottom of the cover—which says Photography by me (my name) is cut off a little on a hardcover and basically in half on softcovers.

When I uploaded to the program and then even looking at it now in my store (I don’t have it public yet as I am giving it as a christmas gift and don’t want anyone to see them until then), the name is fine and it’s off the bottom as I designed it. It’s not right on the bottom, it’s a good inch or so up. However, the book doesn’t look the same. Is this my fault or a printing thing? Should I contact customer service?

As for the rest of the book… awesome. It’s the third book I ordered via blurb and I’m very happy. The colors look good and the photos are sharp. The binding seems good (at least on the hardcover … haven’t really got too deep in the softcovers, but they seem fine). Everything is there and looks nice. Overall, a good job, just not sure what to do with the cover etc.

My hard drive went wacky, but I can access the files (not program) through another hard drive.

I had started a book and want to import it to my laptop, but can’t seem to figure out what I need to do. I grabbed the file, but it won’t import. Can anyone help me? Thanks.
