Cost

Swensonia provides bespoke, custom design and conversion services. We prefer to work with artists and eclectics who are seeking premium services and concierge-style service throughout the process. Our staff view e-Book production as a craft — not a commodity service. For us, conversion is a secondary process; design comes first. All fees are established on a case-by-case basis. Fees include the assumption of iterative reviews, quality control checks, requirements discovery and clarification and interim communications (phone, email, WebEx, Adobe Connect, GoToMeeting or live video conference). Whenever possible we prefer to provide project fees so that neither party is encumbered by “watching the clock” but hourly or per-page fees can be established for high-risk projects or projects involving “known unknowns” that require extra patience and flexibility. Our goal is your satisfaction and to acquire future business! Sample price ranges: Art and Photograph Books: start at $500 (any/all formats) Enhanced eBooks: start at $3,000 Kindle: starting at $250 (fiction) $300 (non-fiction) EPUB starting at $250 (fiction) $300 (non-fiction) Smashwords starting at $175 (fiction) $200 (non-fiction) FastPencil: starting at $150 Additional Fees: – Rush fees: start at $500 payable in advance – Cover Design: this is a bespoke service; we do not supply “canned” cover prices with a fixed limit of iterations, developed with mundane stock imagery. There are plenty of vendors who do that if you are on a tight time frame and are working within a limited budget. We perform a careful needs analysis, deliver a creative brief prior to production, and treat each design with concentrated dedication. World-class graphic designers are contracted specifically for this work. – Footnote, endnote and complex tables of contents – Indices ($0.25 – $0.75 per link, depending on the complexity and integrity of the source file, the integrity of the taxonomy for performing the manual and automated labor involved) – OCR and subsequent quality control, document comparison and retyping or reformatting – Information design and image-to-table (or other infographic) conversion when applicable — as well as the reverse! – PDF-to-Word extraction (prices begin at $75)
