Typesetters and Designers

helping you share your words

About us

About Us

Unlimited amendments

We want your finished project to be as perfect as humanly possible. So we do not limit the number of changes you ask us to make until the project is signed off.

Electronic proofs

We believe it reducing waste and avoid unnecessary printing and postage. So we provide only electronic proofs during production to help with costs and the environment.

Print-ready PDFs

We want you to have it all. So we provide you with print-ready PDF proofs on completion, as well as designs in a variety of formats including screen-ready PDFs, JPGs, PNGs and SVGs.

In-house style

We want everything to be consistent. So we work to match your in-house style and branding or can help you establish a brand if you're just starting out.

Straightforward fee

We have simple fee structure. So you know the maximum cost of a project from the beginning to help you budget. A set fee or hourly rate will apply depending on the project.

Family run

We are not your nine-to-five. So we work odd hours and complete projects alongside other commitments but always try and accommodate your deadlines.

Passing the Story Down the Line

Having previously found Narrator to be extremely efficient and professional, I was delighted to hear they would be typesetting my collection again. It's very reassuring to have almost daily contact, and to receive such thorough and skilled attention. Many thanks for your promptness, your understanding, your ideas and (not least) your patience.

The "proof" has arrived, in the form of what appears to be a beautiful finished copy. It looks wonderful! I'm so grateful to you. The fine design of this book is now wholly apparent. I am most grateful to you and your team for creating the handsome onject that is lying by my laptop as I write.

I’ve never had such a good set of proofs! I'm really pleased with the generous spacing of the text too ... I must say this has been one of the easiest and pleasantest publishing experiences I’ve ever had – many thanks for that!
