Can I customize the spine of my MagCloud publication?

On half-fold and saddle stitch bound MagCloud publications, the front and back cover will meet at the center of the spine. On Wire-O bound publications, 0.125" will be trimmed off the inside edges of all pages and the wire coil will act as the spine.

For perfect bound MagCloud publications you can choose to fill the spine with a solid color or upload your own design. To fill the spine with a color simply click the background color box and you will be given a chart to select your spine color. If you prefer to "Design a Spine" you will be able to download a template after your initial PDF upload that you can use to create your custom spine design, then upload your design (as a JPG, PNG, or PDF format) and preview it on the MagCloud site. For perfect bound publications over 80 pages you have the additional option of a colored spine with text. Simply enter the text you want to appear on the spine, and then choose colors for the text and spine.
