I have managed to successfully upload the relevant files but when I check the download I keep finding lines at the top and bottom of the first 3 pages. This also happened when I ordered a Proof Copy before.

Has anyone any ideas why?

I write the words in a Txt file using Verdana, then paste them into the Lulu A5 Template which I then upload.

Any help would be useful as I am ready to get on with the publishing once I have sorted this problem.

    You need to tweak the template Lulu provides. You can't just paste and upload or you'll end up with a mess.


    Print a PDF of your file using DoPDF and see exactly what your pages will look like before you order a proof. If you do not like what you see, go back to the Word file and reformat. Change anything you do not like.


    There are Youtube videos  on every aspect of formatting if you get stuck.


    Good luck.

  • Thanks I'll try to redo the doc
  • Hello TonyQuikky

    Are you pasting into the Lulu template file or the style guide?

  • I want to format my book in Adobe Indesign. Will your program accept a pdf file from this program?

  • Hello Davidcoombs

    Certainly. Just make sure the fonts are embedded and the file you create and save is the same size as the book you plan to print.

  • Okay thank you!
