Services

We convert your word processor document to EPUB format. Conversion my sound like a simple task that could be accomplished by a program; however, it’s not that simple.

An EPUB file is, essentially, a set of related HTML, XML, image and other resource files in a single-file (zip) format. Each file has a specific format and is written mainly in strict HTML5 and XML code.

“We construct an EPUB based on your Word document” would better reflect the service we provide.

The following are price guidelines. Documents must be submitted for review in order to assess the formatting condition and complexity for a price quote:
