I assume you mean something other than an official government passport, such as a themed wedding invitation?

Can we see the pages? Without seeing them I really have no ideas other than to order them like a real passport?

Years ago, I used to direct managers who actually handled this function.  Although I’m not the technical expert, I definitely understand the problem you’re having and why.  My knowledge of current software and the printing process is lacking; however, I do know that the pages should be designed according to what used to be called “page signatures.”

For example, if you’re producing an eight-page document, you would not design pages 1 and 2 to be adjacent to each other on the same page. Instead, pages 1 and 8 should be adjacent to each other. Likewise, pages 2 and 7 would be together. Pages 3 and 6 would be together, and pages 4 and 5 would be your centerfold.

ETA:  We cannot see your images. It’s just a lot of coding.

@Ana_Steele58:  Well, in my example, page 1 is the outside, front cover. Page 8 would be the outside back cover.  Page 2 would be the inside front cover, and page 7 would be the inside back cover. And so on …

and the number of pages has to be a multiple of 4 to make it work! (4, 8, 12, 16, etc)

how are you printing this out? If you are printing say all 8 pages on one 11×17 paper to fold up then the pages will need to be arranged different. Try taking a smaller piece of paper, and then just number what pages go next to each other, so that when you unfold it you can see exactly where each page needs to be.

I know this is an old thread, but we had the same problem. The way we solved it was, first divide the template you want the pages to be, and number the pages 1-1, 1-2, 1-3, 1-4, 2-1, 2-2, etc. (1-1 is the first square of the first page).  Then print the template and design according to how the numbers end up.
