Sorry, your document does not have enough pages to produce a Paperback Book if printed double sided.

However, if you are happy for it to be printed single sided then please select Continue. Alternatively, select Cancel and either choose a different product or Contact Us for assistance.
The paper size of the document you have uploaded is Letter/AQ size (i.e. 215.9mm x 279.4mm). If you are happy for this to be printed on A4 paper (i.e. 210mm x 297mm) then select Continue. Alternatively, Contact Us for assistance if you would like to print your document on Letter/AQ size paper, or select Cancel.
The orientation of the document you have uploaded is Landscape. However, the selected product requires the orientation to be Portrait and therefore any Landscape pages will be rotated 90 degrees anti-clockwise. If you are happy for this to occur then select Continue. Alternatively, select Cancel and upload a re-formatted document.
