Format your children's book for KDP Print or IngramSpark!


**Note: this is a digital download of an InDesign template; there is no finished book product or file. The template is designed so you can format your book yourself.
**Note: an InDesign subscription is required to use these templates.
**Note: these templates are sized to include bleed on all outside edges (not the spine edge) so they meet KDP Print and IngramSpark requirements. Double-check with your POD company to make sure it meets their requirements as well.
**Note: your images must be properly sized for your trim size. This means your PPI needs to be at least 300. Ex: for an 8.5x8.5 book with single-page illustrations, your resolution needs to be at least 2588x2625.

InDesign templates for children's book formatting! Now you can professionally format your children's book all by yourself. Some basic InDesign knowledge is highly recommended. 

You'll have access to three popular self-publishing children's book sizes in full-spread or single-page layouts:
• 8.5x8.5
• 8x10
• 8.5x8.5

Six total templates!

All templates are sized for uploading your children's book to KDP Print or IngramSpark. Margins and bleed are calculated using their guidelines. If you're uploading to another POD platform, please consult their requirements and update your file as needed.

No more worrying about:
• Sizing your page properly
• Adding correct margins
• Adding bleed

Detailed instructions are included in the Google Drive!

Feel free to message me if there's another trim size you would like to see! I can update the Google Drive folder to include more trim sizes as requested.
