CM book printing question

I am trying to take advantage of the CM sale and get a book printed today. I usually print with Shutterfly but I have one layout that is giving me problems there so I thought I would give CM a shot. It is a 2-page layout with a photo going across 2 pages. Now in the SBC+ software with 2 page view it looks perfect. However when I upload to CM and preview it, the layout looks a little off. Is the software 2 page view or book preview more accurate?

I will be staying away from templates like this from now on!!

Thanks so much!

Wendy

I only print through CM, so I'm used to this.

I'd go with the preview view. I see you use 3.0, and that is a bit more generous with it's margins. 2 page spreads, with or without bleeds, are a pain to print in a bound book. I always adjust my 2-pagers for the center binding when I'm making them, or just afterwards. There really isn't a perfect solution.

Hope this helps!

That helps a lot. I think I will re-do the layout. It looked so cute on the software and I didn't want to give up on it. But I also don't want to hate it everytime I look in the book. Thanks for the input!
