Customization Specs

We currently offer virtually endless customization through our online journal builder BUT if you want to customize the cover or customize an interior page in a way we don’t currently offer we're happy to do that with you personally. This post provides the specs you'll need for the additional customization options. Contact us for a quote if you haven't already!
