What is eBook formatting?
eBook formatting is a standard design process that turns your eBook’s text and images into an attractive layout for readers to enjoy. It’s similar to printed book interior design and formatting, but focuses solely on your book in the digital space. Standard formatting for eBooks (ePub and .mobi) feature a dynamic, re-flowable layout for text and images to make sure your eBook looks great when viewed on every size and shape eReader, mobile device and tablet.
Today's readers hold their eBooks to the same standards as printed books, making it more important than ever to showcase a professionalism with your eBook that translates across any popular mobile device or eReader, like the Kindle, Nook, or iPad.
BookBaby's expert designers will help you deliver the best possible reading experience with a custom format complete with an inviting page hierarchy and clear typeface designed to keep your readers engaged.
Professional formatting is an essential part of any eBook design. A clear hierarchy and readable typeface helps create a layout that is inviting to your reader. After you've selected your design options and saved your quote, you’ll be asked to complete a short design questionnaire. It will give you the opportunity to share your ideas about the mood of your eBook or the style of your pages.
Every section you include in your manuscript (foreword, dedication, chapters, etc.) will be custom formatted to create a polished eBook layout. You will also have an opportunity to upload images of your own for us to work with. Our designers will combine your input with their years of expertise to create a custom-designed book that readers will dive into. We will then send you an EPUB proof of your eBook for your approval.
