1106 Design is pleased to announce that it is now a recommended resource for IngramSpark, the company that provides “Big House Publishing for Indie Publishers,” and has been “digitally certified” by IngramSpark as being a book design company that formats books to their specifications for printing and distribution.

IngramSpark “delivers fully integrated print and digital distribution services to the book industry.” Translated, this means that through print-on-demand, IngramSpark makes it possible (and easier) for authors to share their books with the world. IngramSpark prints the book and provides the tools to manage distribution on both print and e-book titles in one place. Print-on-demand means that books are printed as they are ordered, and by using IngramSpark, authors have access to 39,000 booksellers, online retailers (Amazon.com, etc.), and libraries around the world. These amazing services are available to authors once their books are finished and formatted.

That’s where 1106 Design comes in. As an IngramSpark “digitally certified” service provider, 1106 Design delivers “Big Publisher Services for Indie Authors” to finish and format books for independent publishers to IngramSpark’s specifications. Our services include:

  • Cover design
  • Interior page design
  • Editorial evaluations
  • Editing and proofreading
  • Page layout (typesetting)
  • eBook covers and formatting

Most importantly, 1106 Design provides “hand holding” via great customer service. We help authors to sort through the avalanche of conflicting information online, ensuring that the end product is a beautiful and easy-to-read book that can easily be uploaded to IngramSpark for printing and distribution, and that will be positioned to compete in the competitive book marketplace.

What does this mean to you, the author? The combination of IngramSpark and 1106 Design as a recommended resource is great news for the author who wants:

  • To eliminate the stress of finding and working with your own providers. 1106 Design is an experienced, pre-qualified team that has helped bring thousands of books to life.
  • Excellent customer service
  • A beautiful book crafted to exacting specifications
  • The best chance of competing in a crowded marketplace
  • A hassle-free print and distribution experience
