Pre-Press Design & Layout

Setting up your book in a professional page layout program can be a bit intimidating. That’s why 123PrintFinder provides design & layout services — at a very affordable cost!

When you submit your files to a printer, often they will find things that need to be fixed or adjusted before the file is considered “print-ready.” Most of the time, printing plants will charge around $90/hour to fix these problems!

That’s where 123PrintFinder can help. As a print broker, we can help you with your files before sending them to a printing plant — and our pre-press costs are much, much less than the average plant, often saving you 50% or more!

Can I do my own design & layout?

Yes, you can. And for many of our clients that may be printing just 25 or 50 books for personal use, that is what we recommend to save costs for them. (Click here for a list of acceptable file formats.)

However, if you are planning to sell your book in bookstores, you may want to consider having the inside layout of the book done professionally. This will enhance your credibility as you try to get bookstores to accept your book for resale, and will ultimately sell more of your books!
