The printed page delivers your story. Since the invention of the press, the presentation of words on paper has been refined to perfection. Your readers demand a comfortable experience and will immediately notice any layout issues. Our team will take your raw manuscript and turn it into an effortlessly readable book.
To make a book comfortably readable, consideration needs to be given to text tracking, leading, font size, style, chapter breaks, contents, front matter pages, index, glossary, footnotes and not to mention graphs, diagrams, and illustration where necessary. What may seem like a simple case of changing the page size to a standard paperback format, is a complex project in its own right.
We are professional book designers and have the skills to transform your raw manuscript into a beautifully laid out book file that not only looks as good as any book in Waterstones but is prepared for print in the right way. We work extensively with significant print facilities for POD (print on demand) and traditional lithographic printing presses. So we have the experience to create a brilliantly designed book that passes all the pre-press checks and prints beautifully.
