Our print formatting service takes your original manuscript and converts it into a print-ready file that can be used directly by print book publishing services such as Amazon KDP and IngramSpark. This includes formatting of elements such as typography and pagination so that they are consistent both throughout the document and with industry standards.
The final deliverable is a print ready PDF file.
