LisaLynn Posted March 13, 2015 Share Posted March 13, 2015 This is a question for all of you who have gotten books made by a printing service or are thinking of doing so: I have recently switched from square pages to 8.5x11 pages and I that proportion, and that size paper is far less expensive too. So far I have made mine oriented in landscape, the 11" being the width, which works well for viewing on a monitor. But I am now planning to start using printing services which create bound books. I know you can get the books with the pages oriented either way, and for simplicity I'd like to pick one orientation and stay with it for all my layouts. I'm wondering if the portrait orientation is a better choice, since an 11" tall x 8.5" wide book would sit better on a shelf and might also be more pleasing to look at and just generally feel more balanced when viewing and turning pages in a book. Can I ask, for those using an 8.5x11 type layout configuration, which orientation do you prefer and why? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
