Print formatting service

PRINT FORMATTING SERVICE – £149

The ideal print formatting service for indie authors who want to capitalise on their book’s potential. We work with your finished manuscript and format your book to create a high-quality interior that not only meets industry standards, but looks clean and professional. You will receive a PDF file that will be ‘print-ready’ to use for online Print on Demand companies, such as CreateSpace, Lulu, or Ingram Spark.

Service includes:

  • Print formatting
  • Professionally designed and formatted print-ready PDF file
  • Unlimited changes until the project is signed off
  • Copyright page and content (if you don’t already have one)

Optional extras:

  • Non-fiction – Please contact us for further details
  • Images – we can work with images for a small cost, with a fixed price per image.
  • Tables and graphs – Again, although not recommended, we can work with tables/graphs/charts for a small, fixed cost per inclusion.
  • Decorative elements
  • Content changes after the project’s completion (once the book has been signed off).

THE NEXT STEP

Simply complete the form on the right, giving as much information as possible, and this will allow us to know whether we have enough to start with or whether we need to contact you to discuss requirements before getting back to you with our initial concept and thoughts.  When we, and you, are ready to begin the print formatting process, a deposit of 50% of the standard fee is required.  The balance of the payment, as well as any additional costs for optional extras, will be required once a design has been agreed upon and prior to the release of any artwork. If you’d rather discuss your requirements in an more informal manner prior to going ahead, please use our standard contact form.

ABOUT YOU

ABOUT YOUR BOOK

BOOK SPECIFICATIONS

Trim Size
Knowing your trim size in advance is important as this will not only affect the shape of your back and front covers, but also the thickness of the spine, based on the number of pages and paper type. Please select your preferred trim size from below.

Paper Colour
Please specify which colour of paper you're planning on using for your internal pages. It's important to note that white is generally reserved for non-fiction and reference books, whereas cream is the standard for fiction.

Who will you be using to print your book?
Please note that your final balance will increase by £50 for every additional printer you select beyond your first as a different set-up will be required for each.
