One-stop book design: From concept to print, and more!
Book Cover Design
We’ll start the process of designing your cover by asking questions, reading your manuscript and researching your audience and competitive titles. We’ll provide you with a range of custom cover designs to choose from, and will work with you to achieve the desired look that is right for your audience. And yes, books are judged by their covers. Take a peek.
Book Layout Design
Whether you’re publishing a simple text-driven book or have many images, charts, graphs, pull quotes and sidebars to include, we’ll make sure your book layout is consistent with the cover design, typographically attractive, readable and engaging. Our experience with interior book layout ranges from the simple to the most complicated formats featuring various specialty printing and binding techniques, paper types, removable posters, glued-in pockets and much, much more. We’re invigorated by the challenge of making a book’s interior be as spectacular as its cover. Have a look at some of these book layouts.
Once upon a time a lovely book needed to be read…
Production & Print
Throughout the process of designing your book, we’ll take great care to make sure we are preparing it for the inevitable—being printed and reproduced at the highest quality and standards. Making sure your book is prepared properly for the printer of your choice is a big part of the job. We’ll make sure your files are prepared and ready for press, in addition to following all the necessary guidelines your printer may provide. We use a number of domestic and overseas printers, and are well versed in print-on-demand (POD) technologies and printer options. We’ll help guide you through the detailed process.
Most books are destined to be read on some digital device. We will take your beautifully designed book and convert it to the e-Book format of your choice, so that your audience can connect with your work easily across various devices.
Spreading the Word
Tools to help you engage with your audience
Book trailers are a wonderful way to get in front of your audience and get them excited about reading your book. Our trailers range between 40-60 seconds—typically enough time to give your audience a glimpse of your upcoming title in an engaging video that can be used in a multitude of marketing venues. Staying in concert with the design that was developed for your book, we’ll work closely with you to develop a memorable video clip that can be shared on various social media outlets.

An author website provides an essential meeting place to connect with your audience, a place where readers can meet you as an author and interact with you. We can design and program a site for you that is clean, easy to navigate, informative and engaging.
Our branding service is very much focused on giving your company a professional appeal. That may include developing an elegant logo for your indie publishing venture, or creating essential marketing collateral in the form of business cards, brochures, displays, advertisements and more. Success in the field of publishing is greatly affected by how your brand is portrayed. We make sure that your brand is consistent across all of your marketing venues.
A Final Touch
It’s all in the details. What makes you stand apart?
We collaborate with a network of editors to bring your book to top form. Making sure your book reads well is as important as the design and layout. We can provide both manuscript editing (also called copyediting or line editing, but distinct from developmental editing) and proofreading, and/or pair you with an editor to really overhaul your manuscript and make sure it’s ready for its debut.
We would love to speak with you about your specific needs and goals. Every project is different and has many moving parts. We’ll work with you to define your vision and give it an attractive package.
