If you have opted to use our text design services, our designers can combine your manuscript, photos, graphics and personal mementos to create a one-of-a-kind interior layout. Below are instructions for how to organize and send your materials to our designers.
Your manuscript is the most important component of your book. Provide your text-only manuscript as a Word Doc or RTF file. There should be no images in the document. If you are providing images, put an image marker, such as "Insert Image 4 Here," in the spot where you want that image to appear in your manuscript.
If your book has interior images, you will select either our Standard or Deluxe Interior Design services. Images should NOT be included in your manuscript. Instead, send your images as separate JPG, PNG, PDF or TIFF files. Name your image files so that they can be matched to corresponding markers in your manuscript. For example, if you have a marker that says "Insert Image 4 Here," title your image file "Image 4".
If you have hardcopies of photos that you would like to include in your book, mail them to our office at:
3718 Mahoney Drive
Centralia, Washington 98531
Include a name on a sticky note on the back of each photo. We will then match these names to corresponding markers in your manuscript.
If you have captions that you would like to include with your pictures, compile your captions in a separate Word document. Give each caption a name that can be matched to a corresponding image in your text.
If you have prepared a print-ready interior and do not need design or formatting services, please review our the Interior PDF Requirements before sending your file.
