Typesetting skill

We specialise in providing quality typesetting of any book, from picture-based to high-end footnote setting. We have developed systems using industry-standard applications. With our advanced pagination XTension, we can tap into extremely powerful batch processing capabilities, while retaining the awesome design capabilities of QuarkXPress and InDesign. Best of all, the book remains consistently formatted no matter which operator executes the corrections. Our system provides for electronic workflow solutions including XML and SGML, and we marry our typographical abilities with your web team to provide advanced web typography for publishers making websites from their books.

High-end typesetting requires computing power to process many pages. We use a powerful client-server computing system with Mac OS and Windows running on fast dual-processor machines. This enables us to provide extremely specialised typesetting services, including legal setting, dictionary setting (see also our section on web typography), educational books, university text books, complex hardware manuals, directories, religious publishing, dual-stream narrative (such as multi-language typesetting), project setting, thesis and coffee-table picture books.
