Do our recipes have to be typed when we submit them?
No. We will accept your recipes as long as they are legible. We do suggest that you carefully print or type the contributor name for each recipe. Every single one of your recipe contributors will want his or her name spelled correctly in the cookbook. If the names are illegible, you run the risk of disappointing your contributors.
What size is the finished cookbook?
Our fundraising cookbooks are 5.5 inches wide x 8.5 inches tall. This is a perfect size to use in the kitchen and store on your bookshelf.
Can I send a photocopy of a photograph, instead of the actual photograph?
We need a photograph. If you were to submit a photocopy of a photograph, you would not be happy with the printed results. Refer to our Press-Ready Cookbook Page Guidelines for complete information. We will return your photograph if you send us a written request with your order.
Can you include my own sketches or text filler on my recipe pages?
Yes. However, this option is available only if you have chosen our Recipes Not Continued format. There is a small additional cost for this option.
Do we have to use your recipe forms?
No, they are available only for your convenience. We do advise that all of your recipes are submitted on approximately the same size of paper (5½ x 8½ or 8½ x 11) for ease of organization and handling. Please place only one recipe on each sheet, and do not continue recipes on the back of your paper…they might be overlooked during the typing and proofing process.
