Your book deserves a beautiful print layout.


If you're publishing a physical book, then you'll need a print layout. And that's one of those things that's really easy to do badly, but which takes knowledge, skill and experience to do well.

We see lots of self-published books, and even some from so-called publishing companies, that make the kind of mistakes with print layouts that would keep us awake at night! – things like blank pages with page numbers, awful typesetting with obvious 'widows and orphans' and margins that don't take account of the fact that a book has facing pages.

There's no need to put up with such low standards, and your book can and should have a print layout that matches the standards of those of the big publishers.

Each print layout we create is tailored to the book in question. It may need to incorporate diagrams or illustrations; but even if it is purely text, we'll chose fonts and create a layout that's perfect for the book – taking into account its genre and its cover design, and giving you a book you can be proud of.

More often than not, we handle print layout work as part of a larger commitment to publishing the book, but we're very happy to provide print layout work in isolation too. We can create print-ready pdfs ready to send to whoever's printing your book or to upload to the printing platform you're using. We have the experience to ensure we will supply you with a file to upload that is formatted perfectly and won't yield any error messages on upload. Guide pricing is difficult to provide as so much depends on the requirement – how many pages the book has and whether it has illustrations etc. – but we promise to always be competitive in our pricing. In fact, we think you'll be pleasantly surprised at how affordable our print layout services can be.

Please don't hesitate to contact us whatever your print layout needs
