  • Custom – for larger publishers (100+ titles per year) we offer custom web-based composition solutions, centered around an XML workflow, that significantly reduce throughput times and per-title costs

  • Full Service – we offer project management that, working directly with the author(s), takes the manuscript through the entire prepress process, delivering proofread, copy- edited x1a PDF print files
