Typesetting

We can handle general trade books to the most complex of 1000+ page academic textbooks. We format text and content ensuring it is accurate and consistent, using industry standard software from Adobe, Quark and Office. We learn quickly about how a design or document is put together. Our expert typographic knowledge, understanding of editorial style and eye for detail is also a natural benefit. Our turnaround times are prompt, or they are set by you. We typeset books and journals on a regular basis for publishers.
