Setup a document / book to correct sizing for printers.

I am writing a book. I want to be able to send it to someone like kdpress.com to get a short run printed. They show that book sizes are 5x8 or 5.5x8.5, etc...

While they have instructions on how to submit a PDF to them (http://www.kdpress.com/pdf/PSsettingsINDCS3_PC_INT1.pdf) they don't have any instructions on how to size the document so that it will be printable in the correct size.

How do I setup InDesign CS4 for a 5.5 x 8.5 book?

The instructions posted @ KDpress are based on printing to a postscript file and then distilling it.  My recommendation would be to export it directly to a PDF rather than print to a postscript file.

go to this link (my work's website) and use the settings there - they are usable for any print size.


hope this helps.
