Outsource for corporate and trade publishing
We offer corporate and trade book publishers a wide array of project management and publishing services. You can outsource any phase for trade, academic, or special-edition publishing.
STEP 1: Call or email for an estimate
Specify the scope and purpose of your project. We can usually provide a ballpark estimate over the phone. A schedule and written estimate will follow within two business days. Rush services are available when schedules permit.
STEP 2: Submit author materials
Organize and prepare your materials for upload to a cloud server or email your project resources directly to us. You will receive a summarized checklist for any of the following services:
Strategic Planning: Submit project proposal including general description, target audiences, target markets, key selling points, competitive titles, table of contents, and author bio.
Editorial: Submit manuscript in MS Word including graphics with caption copy; front matter including table of contents, dedication, copyright information, foreword or preface, and ISBN if required; back matter including endnotes, bibliography, index, author bio(s), and advertising; and front and back cover text.
Studio Production: Submit final edited and proofread manuscript including all front and back matter for interior page design and layout; photos and graphics for retouching; file sizing and optimization; flight-check for front cover, back cover and spine; and hard-copy proofing as required.
Print Management: Submit flight-checked interior page and cover files for blue-line and match-print proofing along with delivery instructions.
Marketing: Submit your marketing objectives including biographical or corporate information, and budget.
Step 3: Enter the pipeline
Upon budget and schedule approval, your project enters our publishing pipeline. Milestone approvals are built into the schedule to keep the project on track and within budget. We request a designated contact person for communications and approvals.
STEP 4: Delivery
Delivery of the completed service production will be made, with client approval, on or before the due date based on the project timeline.
Limited executive editions
We can help you plan a monograph or a special occasion limited executive edition. If elegance is the goal – we will help you achieve it. You can choose from a broad variety of handmade and production paper stocks, leather and cloth covers, foil-stamping, embossing, and original artwork.
These data-driven publications are detail oriented and ideally printed on sheet-fed digital presses. We offer meticulous typesetting standards to conform to your corporate style guide. Our production and print management provide quality-control processes throughout all phases of the project.
