Problem with Adobe Brochure Template Size

I downloaded and designed a tri-fold brochure template from Adobe stock. This was my first brochure, so I didn't think to verify what size the brochure should be. Apparently, 8.5 x 11" is a standard size, but the default sizes of the template are as follows:

 

Full Size

Width, 12 1/8”

Height, 8 3/4 “

 

Bleed Area

1/4” Border

 

Final Size

Width, 11 5/8”

Height, 8 1/4”

 

I contacted a custom print shop that can accommodate this size, but it may cost more money. Am I misunderstanding something? I find it hard to believe a template from Adobe could be so close to a standard size, but miss it like this. Is there an easy fix or would I need to manually adjust everything at this point to fix it within Illustrator?

 

Kind Regards,

Cameron

Can you link to the stock file? It wouldn't surprise me if it was a bit off; these are just created by random individuals with minimal quality checks.

Those templates are provided by people all over the globe. They have been created for different pruposes. Different printing services offer a variety of sizes. So don't expect every template to exist in a sizes that you happen to consider "standard".

 

In my part of the world 8.5 x 11 inch won't get you anywhere.

I made the same mistake. I'm sad to see no one has posted a "quick fix" solution yet. Did you end up resizing each thing in your doc manually?

There is no quick fix.
