Regardless if the book is a simple black & white

product or dynamic color, layout has an important
story to tell to the reader.


Remember cover layout is an important feature of any
product and is often the first available moment to catch
a reader’s attention.


Layout Setup: This involves

setting up the master pages
in InDesign, the creation
of design elements, type-
face choices, etc. This also
includes making sure the
document is set up correctly
to your printer specs. $100
to $250 flat rate.

Page Layout: This is adding

text files and artwork into
a cohesive document. Price
is $4.00 to $6.00 per page,
depending on complexity.

Cover Setup: This service is

included with the Lay-
out Setup. However, with
many publishers preparing
products for print, the
need to set up covers for
specific production is on
the rise. This service can
be purchased at $50. If you
need full cover design (text,
graphics, art placement) as
well as print setup, the cost
is $100.00
