The Edition One Books workflow
Step 1 – Place Your Order
You contact us via the Project Request Form, filling out the details of your book. After reviewing your submission, one of our staff members will contact you with instructions for uploading your print-ready PDF files and submitting payment.
Step 2 – Proofing
After we receive your deposit, we print a full, unbound hard proof of your book’s contents and send it to you. This is the time for you to approve image quality, check for typos, and make any necessary changes before final printing. If you need to make edits, you can submit new files. Additional proofs can be purchased if needed.
Step 3 – Production
Orders are put into full production after you approve final printing and we receive the final versions of all necessary digital files. Most softcover book orders will be shipped within two weeks of final approval, whereas hardcover books will take three weeks or less. Very large orders or orders with custom material requirements can take up to 5 weeks. Please see our FAQs page for information on shipping.
