Table of Contents
- A FREE table of contents will follow your personal pages and precede recipes.

- If you submit recipes with typensave®, you will also be able to build your personal pages online.
- If we typeset your recipes, we will also typeset your personal pages. Please use our Personal Page Sheet (PDF) to submit your material. Do not exceed 320 words per page (equals 38 lines if filling entire page with text). Submit fewer words if page includes photos/artwork.
- If you send your recipe pages press-ready, please submit ALL pages press-ready, including the title page, index, table of contents, personal pages, and any other pages. For specifications, please use our Press-Ready Cookbook Pages Guidelines (PDF).
- Note: 1 page is 1 side of a sheet of paper. Blank pages must be included in the page count.
Category & Contributor Indexes
- A category index alphabetizes recipe titles within each category (and subcategory, if used). The names of contributors will be indexed alphabetically.
- Both indexes are FREE; however, the contributor index must be requested on the order form.
- Do not include any additional information (second name, title, etc.) on the same line as the contributor name. It affects our ability to create an accurate contributor index. If recipes have multiple contributor names, only the first name will appear in the index.
- If you choose recipe symbols, they will be included in the index next to recipe titles.
- Indexes will follow your recipe pages.
- A FREE mail-order page is a great way to make additional sales. This page is optional.
- It will list sales information for purchase of additional copies.
- The mail-order page will follow the indexes and precede Cooking Hints.
