CREATING A COOKBOOK

RECIPE TYPSETTING and RECIPE PAGE LAYOUTS

Typesetting Guidelines

To maintain the integrity of your recipes, we train our typesetters to “type what they see”. We will correct any obvious errors and convert the recipe measurements to standard abbreviations. Therefore, we encourage you to read through the recipes prior to submission to ensure each recipe reads correctly.

For spacing purposes and to maximize the recipes per page, we may rearrange the order in which recipes are typeset. If the recipe order is critical, it must be indicated when the recipes are submitted and the cookbook will be subject to additional charges.

Continued Recipe Format

To provide the lowest price possible, we utilize a continuous recipe format. This format allows for the entire page to be used, breaking a recipe at the bottom of a page when necessary and continuing the recipe on the next page.

Non-Continued Recipe Format

For the most functional recipe format, we offer a non-continued recipe format. This format typesets a complete recipe on one page. There may be more than one recipe per page with this fomat, but the recipes will be spaced to start and stop on the same page (unless the recipe is too large to fit on one page).

Recipe Page Layouts

You can select from 6 different recipe page layouts for your cookbook. Each layout gives the cookbook a distinct look. Except for the font, these layouts must be used as designed and cannot be modified. Samples of the different layouts can be printed from our Download Documents page. The ingredients will always be separated from the directions, which are typed in paragraph form.
