Custom Package - $1,849

If you have very specific design ideas, or require complex formatting, the ultimate control provided by the Custom service is for you. Our designers create each page with original text and layout formatting and then customize your entire book by incorporating up to 35 image manipulations and enhancements. If you do not have specific ideas, we will develop a storyboard for your approval and execute a design that you oversee and approve at every step of the publication process. In addition to personalized full-service design support, the Custom Package includes more books and online availability through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other online book resellers.
