FAQ

I received my books but the edge is off the front cover!

The Accordion Books have a front and back cover that wrap around; therefore the bleed lines are especially important. Please follow them as accurately as possible.

Can I just order one at a time?

The 3×3 and 2.5×3 Accordion Books come in a set of 3. The 4×8 and 4×4 Accordion Books can be ordered as a single book.

Are Magnet Closures Included?

Magnet closures are only included on the 4×4 and 4×8 Accordion Books. They are NOT included on the 2.5×3.5 and 3×3 sizes. They are an extra cost and can be added in MyACI on the cart screen.

I don’t want to make full spreads, can I just drag images into each of the pages?

Yes, when you build your Accordion Book in MyACI, choose layout that allows you to drop individual images in.

How do I make sure my text on my Accordion Book does not wrap around the cover?

The best way to insure that your text will not wrap around the cover, is to use the downloadable guides on this page. Be sure to keep all of your text inside the “bleed” area. Also, don’t forget to turn off your guides before saving and ordering.

How do I make sure that my borders are even on my Accordions after wrapping around my covers?

It is important to note that the Accordions are all handmade and no two are exactly alike. All of your images should bleed all the way to the end, eliminating borders. If you wish to include a border on your Accordion covers, you should use the downloadable guides on this page. When designing the book, make sure that your image is completely centered and that your borders are even on both sides.
