looking for a book cover template for 5.06" x 7.81"

Hello everyone, I am looking for a template for book cover size 5.06" x 7.81"

 

I was thinking once I up loaded all my information a template would be available, but I was told last night there was not one available in that size. My book is 213 pages!

 

thanks,

ashley

You can create your own templates if you remember this rule:

 

The template is the width of the back cover plus the width of the spine plus the width of the front cover times the height of the book.

 

The spine width is easily calculated if you multiply the number of pages by 0.00225 (I use the cream page calculation because it is easier to figure)

There are some book cover templates at http://www.lulu.com/tinhorn , but not sure there is one you want to use. Just scroll toward the bottom of the page and you will see them.
