About Our Services

Marshall Cavendish provides a comprehensive publishing solution from initial conception all the way to print and delivery, ensuring your book is produced to the highest possible standard – on time and on budget. A dedicated in-house project manager will coordinate the process from start to finish, so you only need to be involved when you want to be.

1. Concept development

Our highly experienced team will work with you to develop the editorial and design concepts for your book, taking on board your objectives for publishing and the audience for the book. We will also suggest appropriate production specifications to complement your book’s content to optimal effect. Mock-up designs will ensure the creative direction of the book is visualized at the earliest possible stage.

2. Manuscript and content creation

As a globally-renowned publisher, our author and contributor base is international. Wherever needed, we will suggest and commission suitable authors, photographers, illustrators, researchers and indexers of the highest standard.

3. Editing, design and layout

Our in-house editing and design team is comprised of experienced and talented creative minds who combine meticulous manuscript editing and proofreading with cutting edge design motifs and layout. In our closely collaborative workflow, client feedback and corrections are welcomed during the proofing process.

4. Press-check, printing and delivery

We will source for the best printer for each particular project, weighing up the production considerations and cost factors. Colour proofs and ozalids are closely checked and verified before final print so that ultimate accuracy is ensured, whilst we commit to having every project judiciously press-checked by a member of our team. Once printing is complete, we will arrange efficient delivery to your doorstep, even if international shipping is required.

5. Distribution

For appropriate titles, we will produce a ‘trade edition’ of your book, absorbing the warehousing, marketing and distribution costs, as well as the cost of extra printed copies. This trade edition will then be marketed and sold through our international distribution market to give clients maximum exposure and publicity.

6. Digital options

Finally, Marshall Cavendish has a constantly-evolving e-book publishing programme and various e-publishing options are available for custom-published books.
