Cheat Sheet: Create a Bookmark

Note: These instructions apply to templates that use the Lists editor, as well as emails.

We have three different bookmark sizes, to give you flexibility depending on the amount of content you have:

Bookmark-2-page (previously called rack cards)
  • These tall, over-sized bookmarks print on both sides (2-sided).
  • Each bookmark will print on half a sheet of 8.5" by 11" paper. You will print two copies of the same design.
  • Ideal size to be used as a door hanger.
  • Great format to use when you need more space to include more information, for example a short book discussion guide.  
Bookmark-3-page (previously called wide bookmarks)
  • These bookmarks are perfectly spaced to print three bookmarks to a page, and will print on both sides (2-sided).
  • You will print three copies of the same design.
  • Perfect size for any type of list. You can fit several annotated books -- or highlight one larger book jacket and lists additional titles below.
Bookmark-4-page (previously was the standard bookmark size)
  • These narrow bookmarks are designed to print four to a page, and print on both sides (2-sided).
  • You will print four copies of the same design.
  • Great for when you are conserving paper and just want something small to hand out. There's room for a short list of books or events.
