Our tools support all of the trim sizes offered by KDP:
Bleed is a printing term used to describe a document which has elements that touch the edge of the page, extending beyond the trim edge and leaving no white margin. When a document has bleed, it is printed on a larger sheet of paper and then trimmed down.
The pages between the from and back cover of your book are called the interior. You will upload a PDF file that contains the contents of your book for your interior on KDP.
No and low content books are books designed to be written or drawn in by the person that buys the book. Some examples are: journals, coloring books, log books, diaries, notebooks, planners, handwriting practice books, sketchbooks, composition books, and books designed for drawing your own pictures and comic books.
