Book Layout and Design

Basic Text Layout from $275.00

Basic fiction and prose-style non-fiction ONLY. If your book has illustrations, bullet lists, tables, charts, subheadings or footnotes, this option is NOT available. This is the ultimate text layout for the budget minded shopper. It combines some do-it-yourself elements, along with minimal designer interaction. If you have some time to invest, you can’t beat the price. Made in the USA.

Package Includes:

  • Email consultation with designer
  • Choose from 3 different standard text designs
  • Creation of title page
  • Creation of copyright page
  • Creation of table of contents (if needed)
  • Layout up to 320 formatted pages of text with running heads and folios (page numbers) from your MS Word document. Text running longer than 320 formatted pages is assessed an additional charge of $75 per 64 pages.
