Although at BookNZ we offer a full service from manuscript to print, we recognise that there may be occasions when you already have a concept in mind or are satisfied with your existing designer but would like to reduce your typesetting and production costs.

Most countries’ favourable exchange rate with the New Zealand dollar and our fast, accurate typesetting and production services mean that you can save both time and money and still achieve a professional, quality result.

This is what we believe really sets us apart from others in graphic design. Accuracy is critical in typography and we take great care to ensure consistency in text, spacing, graphics and page layout, giving your project a consistent, appealing look throughout.

We will refine a supplied design if necessary, making changes for example to keep page baselines consistent or to aid readability. We will always do this in close contact with you, sending PDF files for you to approve before making final changes.

Website design and production by BookNZ

Supplied files: We are able to read most file formats from different platforms and can liaise with your designer or author to organise an efficient workflow. We will adapt supplied graphics if necessary to make them consistent with the other elements of the design. Supplied text files are always cleaned up to remove double spacing, unnecessary tabs and other common word-processing errors.

Prepress troubleshooting: We will identify and suggest solutions to any elements which may cause problems during printing.

Preflight: Before our files are sent to a printer or bureau, they are thoroughly checked using sophisticated preflight software. All supplied files are accompanied by a feedback form so that bureaux and printers can define their exact requirements, further streamlining the typesetting and production process.
