Hi, I am looking to make a children's book for my 4 year old son as a birthday present. It is just for personal use and I'll just be making one copy and so I am looking to keep the cost down as much as possible. I have written the story. There will be a front cover, 18 pages of text and pictures and then a back cover.
I am looking for the images and layout etc. to be very simple and straightforward. I am thinking something like the Mr Men style with simple blocks of colour and black font (example picture here: [login to view URL]).
Also, to keep the costs down, I will keep edits to an absolute minimum. The text is finalised already and won't change. Once I see one example of the picture pages, then we can proceed with all. I will be getting the book printed and so will need the file to be printer ready with bleed etc. I will look to have it as A5 size to keep the print costs down.
I am more focussed on cost than time right now so please let me know what the best price is that you can do, an approximate turnaround time and also an example of your work as well please.
Please only contact by email.
Thanks very much
