Inserting a blank page to allow for coloring book pages not to bleed through?

I am currently creating a coloring book of my own scanned and uploaded art. Upon initial loading, I was under the impression that each drawing would print on each individual page. (ex. 32 pages equals 32 actual pages with a drawing printed on the front side of the page.) Now that I have read some forums, I'm seeing that the pages actually print front and back, starting on the second page. (ex. page 1 is on the right side, pages 2 and 3 face each other, pages 4 and 5 face each other, and so on.) Do I need to go back and upload a blank page in between each one in order for them to print the way I want? With me creating a coloring book, I'm afraid that having pages printed front and back will cause marker ink to bleed through from whatever is being colored on the opposite side. If I do need to add a blank in between, I'm assuming I can just scan a blank piece of paper? Fixing this error shouldn't be a problem but I would like to know as soon as possible so I can quickly make that revision. Thank you in advance for any help you can offer!


  • To prevent bleed you will need a blank page between each illustration.


    Page 1: the title of your book

    Page 2: your copyright notice

    Page 3: illustration 1

    Page 5: illustration 2.

    Page 7: illustration 3 etc etc

  • I’m trying to figure out the same we just insert a blank page as mentioned above?

    Do you not have Word? If so then create a file of pages that match the size of book you have picked to Create, paste an image to a page and then just add a blank page with the Page Break tool. And so on.

    As Wild has mentioned you will also need a Title page, a Copyright page ( and any other page you want, such as a Preface.) That is Section 1, the Front Matter.

    Create a New Section for the rest of the content, which will be your art and the blank pages.

    The just upload the entire file,

    I always prefer to use one file because it is then all together. But normally all my pages are auto-numbered in Word, which is easier if one wants page numbers. Word can also be used to Save As a PDF for uploading if required.
