A. Setup Fees

For the absolute best quality, these books must be set-up in InDesign, and converted to PDF. After signing up, you will only need to send your book text and interior graphics to us, and our designer will put the pieces together…with your guidance, of course. You will work directly with our designer to ensure your book is formatted exactly to your liking.

NOTE: We will not print color-interior hardcover books that exceed 100 pages. The prices are just too high and most customers won’t pay those prices for books.
