Why isn?t there a template for 8.5 x 8.5 full bleed?

I am on my 4th attempt to submit 80 interior pages, full bleed. I have been told that the words need to be .25 from edge and the edge needs to go beyond .125 edge etc... I have adjusted it again again according to the pdf and email rejections. I have successfully submitted 3 other books but they were not full bleed pages. The last rejection was because it said I need margins of at least .325.


My question is, since there is no obvious template, if I make each page a pdf of 8.875 x 8.8.75, would that accommodate this margin requirement?

This shouldn’t be so difficult and there should be a template provided. Is it because create space “prefers” self publishers to pay someone to format it?

Thank you for any help you can give. This book needs to be available soon to make it a Christmas book option!

If you want to just format the file yourself set up pages with:


width: 8.625"

height: 8.75"
