Welcome to our real live book design studio, staffed by award-winning artists who love books and know the craft of making yours look as good as the biggest publishers. (We do books for them too.) No “meatgrinders” here, no machines pooping out template after template like sausage. We’ve been designing print books by hand for 30 years, and creating custom eBooks since they were invented.
You have a question? We’re quick to answer all emails. Or call us on the phone. Our studio has big bright windows, cheerful people, sunny flowers, great coffee, and a fuzzy dog named Gus. Besides being good at all this, we’re fun to work with.
We work with all major publishers, including:

Amazon Best Seller!
A Healthy House, the amazing home health resource by the team of Paula Baker-Laporte and John Banta, stole two of the top three spots on Amazon’s Best Seller List, including #1 in two different categories! We designed the cover and the interior. Paula and John provided the smarts. Congratulations!
Coming Soon: Skythief!
We’ve been designing Matthew Wolf’s award-winning fantasy thriller series for years, and we’re excited to announce that his latest, Skythief, is coming out soon! We designed the paperback and hardcover editions inside and out, and had a blast working hand-in-hand with this brilliant author.
Congrats, Shana Bailey!
UppityBrunch, Shana’s delightfully clever and charming cookbook is for sale now! It might be the most beautiful one we’ve ever seen, and we’re proud to have helped her put it all together, from cover to interior, in paperback, hardback, and eBook editions. Great brunch recipes and an inspiring story too.
Our sounds-crazy design guarantee
“Thought since you did the design work on my book you would like to know that it just received the National Gold Medal from eLit Awards for best in its category! Thank you for everything.”
“I attempted formatting my novel on my own. The result was embarrassing. MC took care of everything and I am now a very happy man. I cannot recommend them highly enough.”
“It is PERFECT!! Thank you so much and I will be recommending your book formatting service, as well as contacting you for my second book, which I’m already working on!”

If you’re not thrilled with what we offer, there’s no obligation. You can just say, “no thanks.”

You did the hard part. You wrote your book. Now it's time to publish it. But what's this? Vendors want an ISBN from you. What even is that? Do you really need one? Where do you get it? ISBNs look kind of scary because they're so legal-ish and computer-y. And that...
You're converting your book into an eBook. It needs a cover installed. What dimensions should that eBook cover be? Here's a short answer: it should be 1400 pixels wide, and 2100 pixels tall. There you go. If you're happy with that, go get another cup of coffee and...
