POD LAYOUT: We do offer POD ("print on demand") layout services. We offer this for fiction titles and any title that is similar to fiction in layout, like memoirs which have paragraphical layout and some images, or even books with some tables. We do not offer print layout formatting for complex or "coffee table" books. If you are contemplating a print book, you are likely considering an option that will need a Print-on-Demand layout PDF.

Our POD Pricing:
Generally, our pricing is comparable to Createspace's pricing. Our base price, for print layout alone, for 75K words, starts at $350.00. (This pricing is for under 75K words, and does not include eBooks, Cover design services, embedded fonts, etc.) *pricing information updated 6-25-2019, due to constant misunderstandings about what that included.
We do offer "POD Packages" that have Print POD (a PDF you can use at Createspace, Lightning Source, etc.) coupled with two ebooks, one in ePUB and MOBI format. Our prices are extremely competitive. (Compare these to other Formatting houses that start POD layout pricing at $1.50 for every 250 words: that's $600.00 for 100K words, without any ebooks. Our prices for POD packages, for under 75K words, including one print layout PDF plus two ebooks, one in MOBI, one in ePUB, start at $480.00.)
We highly recommend, for package pricing, that if you expect to need a PDF or print book for reviewers or other reasons that you consider contracting for print layout at the same time as you do the eBooks. Yes, it's more money upfront, but it saves you quite a lot of money overall.
POD LAYOUT AVAILABILITY: Our POD layout services are limited and are provided to clients upon request on a first-come, first-served basis. If you have any interest, please drop in and visit our Print Formatting Showcase.
