Preview button checked but grayed out - no preview of book online
Web Features

Hi Hypoman,
We did have a few issues with rendering previews last week, but it seems to be all fixed. And I had no problem seeing the preview on your book—your photos are spectacular by the way!

Made a 300 pages 13x11 and want to make it in 8x10.
Tips and Tricks

Hi everybody,
We hear you here at Blurb, and we agree that changing the book trim size would be a great feature to add to BookSmart. While I can’t promise that it will happen, I can tell you that this is something the design and engineering teams are actively exploring and we’re doing everything we can to make this a reality down the road.

Happy bookmaking!

Can anyone tell me what the minimum book order is?
General Interest

Hi Vintagegirl,
1 book is our order minimum. I’m not entirely sure where you saw a mention of a minimum order, but we do have a minimum page count of 20 pages per book.

As for shipping prices, there is a link to the right of this post (under the help menu) for Pricing & Shipping. It’s all right there for you!

Blurb book Forever Home as a political tool !
General Interest

Hi Linda,
Congratulations on your book! I took a look at the preview, and it’s great!
We have had many community service books made at Blurb, and it’s the possibility of these sorts of projects that got me really excited about the company in the first place. One of this week’s Staff Picks, Still I Rise by Mark Tuschman is another great example.

How do I choose a wedding theme???
BookSmart

Hi, I’m Alysha, Design Director at Blurb. Let me try to clarify a few things here.

There are 3 themes that are presented when you are starting your book. In most trim sizes there are more themes available for your use in addition to these. You can access these once you have started your book using the "Theme" button on the top left of the application. Sarahdae, we have hundreds of professionally designed layouts, but not quite as many themes.

Crys5683 is completely right. Right now there is no dedicated wedding theme, but we do have several themes, such as Signature and Platinum in the Standard Landscape, that work really nicely for weddings. And, in addition, we have a ton of exciting new themes and backgrounds, including more robust wedding themes coming out soon in the next version of BookSmart.

Hope this helps.
