INTERIOR DESIGN/BOOK FORMATTING
Whether it is a classic novel, a crime drama, a business, science or medical book full of tables and charts or a coffee table book with glossy photographs, TWA Solutions can make the interior of your book stand out and look beautiful.
Our clients include national bestselling authors to publishers to journals and small media publications. We have designed the interiors of journals, legal documentation, trade publications (books), and magazines that encompass a wide range of subject areas.
TWA Solutions designs full-length manuscripts, literary journals, publications, magazines, catalogs, newsletters, flyers, and other customized design layouts. We will also insert internal artwork to fit client’s specifications. Each project is different. Therefore, turnaround time may differ according to each project’s specifications. However, the normal turnaround for novels is 48 to 72 hours.
Our designer will work with the client to select fonts and create a design that will complement the subject matter. Prior to beginning the interior layout process, your electronic file will be cleaned to remove all extra spaces, tabs, and breaks. Then it will be placed into the layout document and the designer will check each page for readability, removing any gaps, bad breaks, or other typographic errors that can ruin your book’s appearance. The file will be sent to you as a PDF (Portable Document Format). We will send you a final PDF for approval and will create a high-resolution file for your printer. If you wish, we will even e-mail or upload the file directly to your printer at no additional charge.
Every interior design project is unique. Our fee is $2.50 per formatted/typeset page for novels and poetry books. For projects such as self-help books, biographies, handbooks, manuals, workbooks, magazines, books with images, tables, charts, graphs, presentations, and journals are assessed on a case-by-case basis, starting at $5.50 per formatted (typeset) page.
