Book Design Templates

Looking to save money on Book Typesetting?

You may want InDesign book templates in varieties that suit fiction or black and white non-fiction. InDesign files can be exported to PDFx3:2002 graphic exchange format for IngramSpark.

Before you go launching into templates, take a moment to consider personal InDesign and typesetting training. This will help you to form your book without the stress of constantly looking up the Help menu to find the tool you need.

With any paid Tutorial, you will also get a double-sided InDesign Cheat Sheet to have handy as you format your book.

On selecting your size of page, we will alter the file for you. You can use the file as normal.

Adobe InDesign Creative Cloud is a program that costs AU $29 / 39 per month – see Creative Cloud Plans. It will help if you have a big computer, one with maximum power.

After downloading/installing, search fonts from Adobe Typekit. Missing fonts are available on a $US 15 per month subscription from Myfonts for 2200 fonts, or $35 each. Do not trust any old font website.

To typeset using InDesign book templates, you will need to use Paragraph Styles — this is in the window called “Control”. It is a matter of selecting the text and clicking the Body style or Heading style. Drop Caps are trickier to select, as they are a character style. To help, many tips are pasted into the template itself.

Risk-Free Guarantee:  If you do not think you can get a handle on applying your styles or are encountering crash errors, return the template to us within 14 days and your money will be refunded thru Paypal.
