Basic Book Design – Get it Done Fast!

Basic Book Design
Base Rate: $99.00
Turnaround: 1-2 business days

Designer’s choice for the fastest turnaround and a simple yet professional layout for basic books. This level of composition includes traditional design elements and works best for short manuscripts with basic text only, with no images, tables, lists, or text that must be offset from the main body. This service can also work well for those who have designed their book in MSWord but need help getting it to meet print-specifications.

When you purchase the Basic interior design option, you may choose from the following elements:

  • Trim Size: 5×8, 5.25×8, 5.5×8.5, 6×9, or 8.5×11.
  • Main Body Font: Minion Pro (our default font), Cambria, Garamond, Calisto MT, Times New Roman, Georgia, Palatino Linotype, Bookman Old Style, Calibri, Arial, Tahoma, and Trebuchet MS.
  • Main Body Font Size: 12pt or 13pt.

Let Our Designers Do the Rest!

  • Page and margin settings, including gutters, to best suit the needs of your manuscript.
  • Front Matter, including proper setup of your title page, half-title page, copyright notice and disclaimer, acknowledgments, dedication, table of contents, preface, foreword, or other introductory pages.
  • Chapter headings will be standardized with a common font, size, and layout.
  • Authors may choose to include a single-level table of contents created from chapter headings.
  • Running heads will alternate author name/book title. (You may also choose no running head.)
  • Page numbers will be automated and set in running feet.
  • All fonts will be standardized according to in-house style guidelines.
  • Text will be fully justified; paragraphs will be indented; and line spacing will be set to single.
  • All layouts include a FREE printer-ready PDF for publication or print. You may use this file to submit directly to your publisher or printer!

I’ve been extremely pleased with the work of Integrative Ink and the professionalism of its employees. When formatting my book, they made great suggestions and even went as far as to create different options for the back cover for me to choose from. The extra work showed great creativity and a willingness to go a step further than what was necessary to make an outstanding end product.
