Design and typesetting

At the end of your project we will produce press-ready or web-optimised PDF files. You can be certain that the press output we supply will have been properly preflighted.

We are familiar with the technical requirements of many printing companies throughout the UK and Europe.

We have extensive experience of typesetting highly illustrated books, journals and reports – we provide a full page design and layout service, including cover design.

We can typeset large multivolume works comprising several thousand pages as well as short reports.

We use Adobe Creative Cloud for design and typesetting projects. This is complemented by special processes and software for XML and ePub production.


We can also use illustrations prepared by authors (ideally if we can first brief them about the numerous and avoidable mistakes usually made).

If you find the world of digital artwork confusing then you have found a company that can provide expert-level assistance – we are very familiar with preparing artwork for web or print publishing.

We can draw artwork for you, use an illustrator of your choice or even find and commission a specialist artist, e.g. for maps or anatomical drawings.

We can also scan photographs, radiographs and transparencies and edit and enhance scanned images.
