What's going on in this step?

We're converting your file(s) into a print-ready file (PDF) that will be used to print your book. During this process we perform a PDF 'normalization' that applies formatting included in your file and creates optimized for print.

How long will it take?

It usually takes a few minutes, but may take longer. Click the Email Me button and you can go off to other parts of Lulu while you wait.

How do I check my print ready file?

  1. Log in to your Lulu.com account.
  2. Go to the My Projects.
  3. Click on the project title to open the project page.
  4. You can download both your print-ready cover and interior files from the links provided at the bottom of the page. Your print ready files are also presented for download and review during the publishing process.
