Print and eBook design for independent authors
We’re not a robot that grinds out stock-looking templates, or a bunch of cut-throat freelance amateurs. We’re a real design studio staffed by artists who love books and know the art of making yours look as good as the biggest publishers. (We do books for them too.) We’ve been designing print books for 30 years, and creating custom eBooks since they were invented.
You got a question, we’re quick to answer emails. Or call us on the phone. Our studio has big bright windows, cheerful people, sunny flowers and great coffee. We’re a happy bunch to work with.
Print book design
Get a print interior design that looks as good as the big houses, without waiting around for a foo-foo agent to discover you.
Book cover design
Oh yes, people do judge a book by its cover. With a beautiful custom book cover, you’ll sell many more books.
We work with all major publishers, including:
Our sounds-crazy guarantee
We don’t invoice you until after we deliver your finished book design. Nutty? Maybe not. In twenty years, we’ve only had one customer skip out. (She came back a year later asking us to do another book.) The point is, we know that gaining trust on the internet is a two-way street. This is how we prove to you we’re for real. We give you a free, no-obligation, locked-in price quote, and when we’re done, that’s how much you pay. We’re the only ones to offer such a guarantee. If you hit any technical snags, we fix them fast and free, always.
How much? Glad you asked.
Email us a copy of your manuscript, or use this handy form. It doesn’t have to be a final draft, just a fair representation of your book. Any format is fine. We look over each book individually to provide an accurate, fair quote. We’ll return a guaranteed price the same day, along with any tips or suggestions we might have once we’ve seen it. If you’re not thrilled with what we offer, there’s no obligation. You can just say, “no thanks.”

National Public Radio shared an interesting story about the redesigning of Helvetica. By far, Helvetica is used more often than any other face, so why redesign? Technical reasons, mostly to do with changing times. It's a great story, but not for here. Whew, what a...
Words matter. You want to get it right. So when it comes to ketchup versus catsup, which should you be using? Ketchup. See? See? I can get to the point. But I'm still going to ramble on about all the fun background bits. Like this, from our Department of Repetitive...
I had to laugh: only one typo in the message, but dang, what an exquisite typo. They misspelled typo.
