3 Ways to Submit Recipes

For your convenience, we offer three ways to submit recipes: type them yourself with typensave®, have us typeset them, or send pages press-ready. Whichever method you choose, be sure to submit your favorite tried-and-true recipes! For a quick review, watch our Step 2 video. For tips on gathering recipes, watch our webinar, Collecting Recipes Made Easy.

We Typeset Your Recipes for FREE

Our base prices include FREE typesetting of your recipes.

Recipe Category Envelope
  • Send all recipes with your order. Late submissions are accepted before production begins but will cause delays.
  • We will typeset recipes in your chosen recipe format; pages will be proofed by us. You will also receive a FREE proof – our combined efforts will ensure an accurate, quality product. Any errors we make are corrected FREE. Changes from originally submitted material are subject to a charge.
  • Production time is 35–45 business days.

Send All Pages Press-Ready

Design your pages your way. Download Press-Ready Cookbook Pages Guidelines (PDF) to get started.

  • If you want freedom to design your pages, send them press-ready.
  • Press-ready pages are pages already typeset using the proper margins, page size, and artwork specifications. No extra typesetting or alterations are needed. The quality of the printed work is determined by the quality of the material submitted.
  • Press-ready cookbooks are priced by the page count. Our recipe formats average 3 recipes per page, so if you only place 1-2 recipes per page, it will cost you more.
  • For specifications on how to furnish material, print Press-Ready Cookbook Pages Guidelines (PDF). For pricing and an order form, print our Press-Ready Order Form (PDF).
  • We require a PDF, as this will provide the highest print quality. We want your pages to look as good as possible! Use our File Uploader to submit your files.
  • If you use this option, all cookbook pages (title page, index, personal pages, etc.) must be press-ready. A FREE proof will be sent to you for your approval. Corrections or changes will be subject to a charge.
  • Production time is 25–30 business days.
