Print-ready PDF

Print-On-Demand companies – Createspace, Lulu and Lightning Source

We will create print-ready PDF files that can be uploaded directly to Createspace.

Don’t use Createspace? We can also create files for other companies like Lulu and Lightning Source. Do you want to print your book with a local printing company? We can design print-ready PDF files to any specification.

Don’t worry about the file format or pre-formatting. You can focus on the content and we will focus on the layout and formatting. Also, if you use our eBook formatting service and you request a change to your book, the printed version will always be updated based on the final eBook version.

Any size, any layout

Our files follow the best typograhical practices developed by the book industry over the years but if you prefer something outside of the norm, we can make your book look totally different by changing any detail you want.

As a default option we prepare your book to a 5.25"x8" (pocket) trim size, but we can also prepare other common sizes including 6"x9" (trade paperback), 5"x8" or 5.5"x8.5". Can’t decide? We can change it at any time, so you don’t need to decide right away.

Any size, any layout including most popular trade paperback (6x9) and pocket (5.25x8) trim sizes

We will get it right or we will pay you

Quality guarantee for Print-On-Demand files

You can check what your eBook will look like before you publish it but with paperbacks it is a bit more tricky. Sure, you can preview a PDF file on your computer but do you know how it will look when it’s trimmed? How big inner and outer margins are going to really be when your book is trimmed and bound? Or if your images are cut off?

To allay these fears, we offer the strongest quality guarantee in the industry: if your paperback turns out less than perfect, we will not only waive our fees but we will also refund the cost of printing and shipping your first proof-copy.

Flat, all-inclusive price

Publishing industry is dominated by additional fees, hidden charges and complicated pricing structures, especially when it comes to edits, amendments and changes.

We don’t believe in working like this. That is why our price includes all changes to the text or layout that you request. Want to change the size or margins? Done! Want to change a few words or a chapter? You can!

You will have peace of mind knowing exactly how much you will pay even before we start work. No hidden fees, no (unpleasant) surprises.
