print book FORMATTING FAQS

When we format your book for you, we format it with our software so that your book looks fantastic on the page.

We include chapter headings chosen specifically for your book, we include the book title and author name at the top of the pages, and include page numbers. Just uploading a word file to Createspace or Amazon KDP Print will not provide this, these features need to be individually added.

We format your book to a 6x9 format. If you want your book to be formatted to a different size, just let us know.

Absolutely! There's a check box on the quote form for that. Juat make sure it's checked, and we'll include eBook formatting in our quote with a 10% discount.

Please upload your   manuscript in either .doc or .docx format. Your uploaded manuscript should be a clean and final copy. This means it should be free of editorial notes, edited, and you should consider it the final draft of your book. We understand that even the best editors miss a typo or two, so we offer up to 6 small corrections to your document for free. More than 6 corrections or substantive changes after we've begun formatting will result in additional charges.

If you want us to include an ‘about the author’ page, a dedications page, social media links and links to previously published works, please send that information to along with your manuscript.

If you already have a cover design, please feel free to send that to us as well. We will embed the cover design into the files for you. If you don’t yet have a cover design, check out our premade shop. If you'd like to order a cover, select one of our formatting packages to save an additional 10-15%.

We’re authors too - we know that your time is precious. We guarantee that your book will be returned to you - fully formatted and converted, within 5 business days.

From time to time we are able to offer a ‘rush’ service of 2 days turnaround, for an additional $50. If you are looking for a faster turnaround, please request this on our quote form in the 'special instructions' field. If our workload is such that we are unable to offer our rush service for your book, we will note that on our quote.

When you order Print book formatting and conversion, we will send you a print-ready PDF file of your completed book. This PDF is guaranteed to be accepted by CreateSpace, Amazon KDP Print, Barnes and Noble, and IngramSpark. If you have any issues uploading your book, please get in touch and we’ll walk you through any steps.

We’re happy to hear from you! Please feel free to send us an email.
