Jeff Montgomery -

Step-by-step Walkthrough for Cards

You first need to set up a title record

1) From your Publisher Hub, select TITLE MANAGEMENT>Set up a new title.

2) If you’re only printing with us, you still need basic title information:

a) Title
b) Number of cards (cards in the deck, not number of PDF pages)
c) $0.00 for PDF price (whether or not you are uploading a downloadable print-n-play PDF)
d) Cover image (you can use this placeholder cover to make things easy)
e) Check at least one Category Assignment filter. (You may also checkbox other filters that best describe your card product.)
f) CLICK Save Title Data and Continue to Preview Description

3) OPTIONAL. If you intend to sell your printed cards on DriveThru, include additional information:

a) Author(s) and Artist(s).
b) Provide a write-up in the Product Page Text area.
c) You may include a game-play or tutorial Video URL.
d) You may include a Purchase Note. (Thank customers, suggestively sell another product, etc.)
e) CLICK Save Title Data and Continue to Preview Description.

4) The next page shows a series of technical line items, plus a Description Preview. If all looks good, click Save and Continue.
