Thinking about self-publishing but not sure what is involved?


Our team of designers is ready to work with you to make your book, your way. Every project is unique which means no cookie cutter templates here, just lots of ideas and creative problem solving.


We offer editing services to help clarify your ideas, polish grammar and typos, and sequence your images effectively. Once your book is ready for production, we will help you find the best printer for your book, while staying on budget.


We can help you create a marketing plan and explore effective avenues for distributing your book. From online storefronts, social media marketing, book fairs, zine fairs, pop-up markets and other options for self-publishers, we’ll help you find your audience.
