Book Typesetting

After months, or even years, of strategizing, writing, rewriting, and editing your content, you’ll now want to ensure that your words are perfectly formatted to provide your audience with the best possible reading experience. That means finding a book typesetter with an impeccable attention to detail—down to every line break, hyphenation, and chapter heading. At Mayfly, we offer professional book formatting and typesetting services that prioritize even the smallest details. All of which can greatly impact the overall appearance, readability, and professional impression of your book.


Our Book Formatting and Typesetting Services

At Mayfly, we take the utmost pride in our book formatting and typesetting services. As professional book designers for nearly two decades, we know that the interior page design of your book, including its typesetting and formatting, is just as important as your book’s cover design. While the cover draws readers in, your interior pages can make or break their decision to continue reading. This is particularly true in the case of books filled with lots of images, charts, tables, and other figures.

We cater to authors looking for:

  • Help creating & formatting basic charts, tables, figures
  • Personalized customer service
  • A responsive, dedicated team
  • A high-end, professional reader experience

Our designers take care, page-by-page and line-by-line, to quality check the flow of your content, providing your readers with an optimal reading experience.

Customer Reviews

As a first-time author, I found Mayfly to be the perfect partner for designing my book and preparing it for publishing. They took the time to understand exactly what services I required and provided a clear and detailed work proposal, then led me through the Mayfly process, which was reliable, complete, and collaborative. By executing the process step-by-step, Mayfly gave me complete confidence that every single detail was being managed correctly. The service was superbly professional and top-notch in every way, and my project was completed on time and within budget. I could not be more delighted with the final result!

—Elizabeth Parker, author of An Introduction to The Infinite Way Message of Joel S. Goldsmith

I highly recommend Mayfly. Ryan was professional, timely, efficient, and very creative. Ryan helped in many aspects of completing the book, including the book cover design, formatting the contents within the book, and completing the registration process. I am very grateful for his expertise. I know that I will hire him again and again as the need arises.

—Jeanine Heath-McGlinn, co-author of Loving the Hell Out of Ourselves (and Others)
