Your book qualifies for general pre-press services if none of the commercial attributes below apply. If your book is not intended for commercial purposes or a technical audience, our general pre-press services are probably right for your book.
We also provide general editing services for text not intended to be made into a book, such as academic articles, professional monographs, magazine articles, speeches, PR releases, and the like. The same terms, rates, and minimum apply.
Your book requires technical pre-press services if:
- it is for the use of a business, governmental entity, non-profit organization, professional group, or a technically-trained audience; or
- the text requires technical editing, reorganization or revision, scanning, or graphic design services (photo manipulation or design effects for text or cover); or
- the book is mostly graphics (e.g., a photo book), text intermingled with graphics, or text printed in columns, unless the manuscript is submitted in print-ready pdf format.
