If you love our templates but don’t dig the DIY aspect, one of our trained designers can apply the template for you. Our hassle-free service smooths out all the wrinkles of word stacks and baselines and ensures your book is reader ready by your publication date.
What Is Included
After you’ve picked out a template you like, one of our trained designers will apply the template to your book. All you need to do is format your manuscript file, purchase a template, and send us a request for typesetting support.
Once we have your request, we’ll assign one of our designers to your book. Then they’ll pour your book into your chosen template and typeset it page by page, giving it the same detailed attention we give custom design clients. Then you’ll receive a PDF for proofreading and final checks. After you give final approval, our designer will input any changes and prepare your print-ready PDF and distribution-ready EPUB (ebook) file.
Our designers’ availability varies depending on the time of year and how many requests we receive, but we can usually accommodate a turnaround of less than a month, especially if you already have a proofreader lined up to complete your proofread in a timely manner. (Need help finding a proofreader? Check out or parent company, Looseleaf Editorial & Production.)
