Book Layout and Design

STANDARD fiction and prose-style non-fiction text layout

This custom text design package combines basic design elements with limited customer service contact. This is a very good choice for those who require a little extra 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
  • Creation of title page/inside cover
  • Creation of copyright page
  • Creation of table of contents (if needed)
  • Layout up to 100 pages of text with running heads and folios (page numbers) from your MS Word document

  • 1 round of corrections (up to 20 corrections). Additional corrections $1 each
  • Final PDF proof for OK prior to sending file to printer
  • Final PDF files for offset or digital printing*

Designer will create the template for a fast turnaround and a simple, yet professional, layout. This level of composition includes traditional design elements and works best for manuscripts consisting of basic text only, with no images, tables, lists, or text that must be offset from the main body.

  • Trim Size: any size up to 8.5×11, please verify with printing plant to make sure they produce the size you want
