For anyone creating a paperback to use with IngramSpark. Any tips or suggestions? Things to look for? Specially concerned about the inner margins as I've had to do a lot of tweaking in CreateSpace.
The book page count is 354. What would be the ideal margin size?


Knowing your page count, they should be able to give you the recommended margins.

Book manufacturers (not "printers." there is a difference!) buy their rolls of paper on a quarterly basis. So the thickness of paper can change every couple of months, depending on what roll of paper they are going to use when your book is printed. This changes the thickness of the book and therefore the recommended margins and gutter. What gutter works for printing this month, will not work come September when a different roll of paper is inserted into the printing presses.

Happily, there is a lot of wiggle room. But for optimal results---to deliver the best possible quality in your product: your book---you want to fine tune that gutter to the paper lot that is being used at the time of printing.
