We're aware of an issue with converting some DOC, DOCX, ODT, and RTF files to EPUB through our Ebook Wizard.

At this time, we're investigating the problem and looking for a solution.

If you've encountered this issue while converting your file, we suggest attempting to create and upload an EPUB directly to our system.

While there are a number of EPUB conversion options, Calibre (Download Here) has shown the best results for creating an EPUB for the Lulu system. Please review their extensive Help resources (Found Here) to create an EPUB 2 that our system can validate.

Book with No theme?

Hi, anyone know if its possible to upload full pages to a book designed to spec with no theme. I designed a book in indesign and i want it printed exactly as is, cant seem to find an option to do something like this. Thanks!


  • I amin a similar situation.


    I figured out I could export my InDesign Pages as Hi-res images and upload and place those in the Lulu Studio Wizard... in the blank theme, using the full-bleed page format. 

    But the bleedin' TITLE PAGE does not accept images, and cannot be formatted or deleted! Dealbreaker!


    You do have the option to do regular non-photo books as uploaded PDF, but NOT Photobooks other than, curiously, the Large Landscape format. But Professionall hardcover only comes in US Trade and Letter sizes. Other sizes are available in the paperback formats except the Large Landscape, but they only come in coil, saddle stitch, and perfect binding - if that works for you, great.
