Reflowable ebooks

from $280 USD

As an avid reader, I just love the convenience of being able to dip into a few pages of my current read at any time. But as a designer, if the ebook I've bought turns out to be poorly converted, I just find it too distracting to read. An ebook should retain all the accuracy of the print book and as much of the character as possible. Parts of the layout should also be carefully adapted for compatibility with the widest possible range of small devices. This takes real care and attention which explains why there are so many poorly converted ebooks out there — so make sure yours stands out as one that looks great!

Price icon
From $280

The price of your job depends on the length and complexity of the book pages to be converted. Printed books with a linked index, pull quotes, captioned diagrams and tables require more work and are likely to be more expensive. We will always need to review your files before we can issue your quotation. For these jobs we ask for full payment upfront as we will convert the entire book in a single pass. All credit and debit card payments are made by PayPal.

Turnaround icon
Turnaround 8 – 12 business days

The time we need to complete your job will be stated in your quotation. If we are producing your printed book then this must be completed first. Please allow yourself extra time to review your files and request changes. If you have a tight deadline please ask for our express service. Express jobs are subject to a 30%, 50% or 100% fee depending on the speed required as our staff will often need to work on them outside normal business hours.

Content is optimised for ebook format

It is important to appreciate that ebooks are very different to printed books. Please see What is an ebook for full details. When designing your ebook we may need adapt parts of the layout to ensure it works as well as possible on the widest range of devices. These changes may be things like no columns, no tables, no forced breaks, no wrapped images. We will also need to replace any fonts that are not licensed for embedding into an ebook.

Digital Rights Management

Your ebook file will not contain Digital Rights Management (DRM). Retailers each have their own DRM solution which you can choose to enable later when submitting files to them. However, unless absolutely necessary we would advice against enabling DRM. It is intended as an anti-piracy deterrent but from our experience can cause problems for legitimate readers such as preventing them from reading the book on multiple devices.

Receive epub and/or mobi file

We return fully verified epub and mobi files ready for you to upload for distribution. Each file is first checked for compliance with the latest technical standards and requirements of the major ebook retailers (Amazon, iBooks). It is important to check this on a proper dedicated ereader like a Kindle or iPad to appreciate how your customers will see it, not to try and open it in a browser. See this page for tips on how to view your ebook. You will also receive a high resolution marketing jpg of your cover.

Changes icon
Clear changes policy

Your ebook is a faithful conversion of your print book file. Any corrections should therefore be made to the print version first. Technical issues with the ebook will always be fixed without charge. All other changes are charged from $48 USD. Edits are charged at a fixed $0.96 USD each if marked as pdf comments on your book file. Please see the following link for detail on how to add comments to your pdf. We will always look to make changes as quickly as possible.
