Blurb's PDF
PDF to Book

My problems with page sizes (my book is 8×10 hard cover wrap) turned out to be my fault for not checking the spine size and making sure that it matched the number of pages. My page sizes were fine but the spine was too big, so it is worth double checking that this is correct.

Pages not right in Preview
PDF to Book

Hi Graham,

I posted a reply to a similar question further down in the PDF topics. I just had printed a large full colour book which will not display properly in the Preview screen but it did print perfectly despite this. Blurb responded to my email to them saying that they are having some problems with previews which they hope to have fixed shortly. I guess the best advice is to contact them directly, they responded to me very quickly indeed. Geoffrey

Blurb's PDF
PDF to Book

Just thought I would share my experience. I have recently uploaded a 120 page book with over 37 pages of full cover, complex layout etc as a PDF and after a few mishaps (mostly my fault) have now received my finished books (I had them printed as both hardback and soft cover) and the quality is superb with the colour the most accurate I have seen. Previously I was using a professional printers in Italy who were good but did not offer the flexibility of printing of Blur, The only problem I now have is a book preview problem in the online bookstore but Blurb have replied to my email within 10 mins which I admit I did not expect so full marks to them. To conclude I thik it is worth persevering since the results ARE worth it! Geoffrey
