I only have one suggestion, and that is to make the option of uploading one single PDF cover while creating a book. Rather than having an image on both the front and back and then having to settle for a plain coloured spine and text, we should be able to use one single landscape image with the backgrounds and text already put on if we have them.


I had asked support about this and I was told that "we would not be able to print the way you would like.  Our printers do not have the ability for that kind of customization". I'm just suggesting that maybe the option be considered for the future.


Thank you,

Hello SDC11 - We do offer the advanced one-piece cover design option in the print wizard. Perhaps you should give that a try.
