Our experienced typesetters know how to design and format attractive pages that are easy on the eye and in keeping with the cover design. When creating the page layouts, they adjust fonts, spacing, margins and other elements to make your book a joy to read. We typeset beautiful, illustrated books and work with photos, tables, maps, illustrations and more. Our typesetters can also use a variety of fonts to show differences within the text, such as text messages, hand-written diary entries, etc. See the typesetting examples on the left.
Once we have created the interior text file and cover artwork file, we check the technical aspects, such as margins and bleeds, to ensure that your files print correctly. Only after these checks have been completed, will the file be passed to you for final approval. Once your cover artwork file and interior text file have been approved, we can set your book up with the printers and produce one paperback proof copy. This gives you the chance to see exactly what your final book will look, feel and even smell like before we go ahead with the final print run.
“I wanted my book to read well and to look wonderful too. The editors at I_AM Publishing helped me improve the text and created a great layout for the book – with photographs, highlighted boxes and a series of Top Tips. It was great to bounce ideas around and to have their professional help with the project.” Ruth Livingstone
