Design Inspiration
///////////////////////////////

Because of the anticipated digital concerns (see below), we have developed a free/low cost proof service for publishing customers. This service is free on publishing's of at least 100 books, $7.00 (to cover postage) for smaller published manuscripts up to 200 pages, and $14.00 for manuscripts up to 999 pages. For publishing of 99 books or less, the cost is generally 5 cents per printed page (a dime per sheet), plus shipping.  Do not confuse this with proofreading or editing, or even an Advanced Reading Copy (ARC).  Although we offer proofreading/editing and ARC services, they have nothing to do with camera ready digital manuscripts.
