Your Full-Service Publishing Company
In the world of book production, especially high-quality, short-run publishing and family history publishing, the number of true equipment-owning publishers is far exceeded by the number of companies and individuals offering only book design services.
Soup to nuts.
Womb to tomb.
Design through delivery.
The whole enchilada.
Those are just four simplified ways of describing the publishing services offered by Creative Continuum.
Creative Continuum is a full-service design and publishing house that differs from companies and individuals offering only book design. From editing, scanning and design to delivering beautifully-printed and bound finsihed books, we handle, manage and are in control of the entire publishing process for you. After we design your book, we never leave you stranded to find a printer or bindery.
Having direct access to our in-house digital presses allows us to design your book to maximize the printing process. Where many designers stick with a more simplified design, we create your book with the end result in mind. A few of the design elements we utilize on a regular basis include...
- full-bleed design
- fold-out pages and charts
- dust jackets
- printed or stylized end sheets
- more vibrant and color-accurate full-color printing
- blind debossing and other unique cover stamping
In addition to having written the book on scanning and photo retouching, owning and operating the entire production environment, especially the digital press, provides opportunities to reproduce your treasured photographs in a more true-to-life manner. Because they don’t know where your book will print, most designers can only provide a fraction of our targeted design quality.
You will only produce your book once. Trust Creative Continuum to deliver the best-in-class product that creates a book that will be treasured for generations.
