What does the Children’s Book Formatting service provide?

Children’s Book Layout and Design

Children’s books are usually deeply illustrated and are in color. We have done many children’s book and there are special requirements for each different printing plant, and therefore it is necessary to know the printer’s name and production requirements before design of the final print files are begun.

This custom text design package combines placement of your furnished illustrations, and if you wish mixed with backgrounds from our vault of stock images, plus design elements with exquisite typography designed to the child’s age level. This project has limited customer service contact. However, it is a very good choice for those who require a little hand holding.

Package includes:

  • Up to 30 minute initial Skype chat consultation with Project Coordinator to establish general book layout, graphic design and type faces.
  • Email consultation with Project Coordinator
  • All pages will be designed using your furnished illustrations, backgrounds, or our stock images
  • Title page/inside cover creation
  • Creation of copyright page
  • Creation of table of contents (if needed)
