    Format the Interior

    Before a book can be printed, it needs to be formatted so that it is in the right page size (typically smaller than the default letter or A4 size your manuscript is in), has the right margins, good fonts for body and headings, correct placement of images and tables, table of content, page numbers, headers and footers etc. The exact choice and design of elements depends on the genre, length, target audience and production option of the book, as well as you own aesthetic choices. You can use our specifications to create the files at your end. Or avail our professional formatting services.
