Appropriate manuscripts for this service include, but are not limited to, those that include many images, charts, tables, figures or other special formatting. Images will need to be sent separately from the text in JPEG, TIFF or GIF format. The images can be resized and compressed and will be inserted into the manuscript where indicated by the author. This service does not include the creation of artwork or securing the rights to artwork or images, but it does include resizing and positioning them to obtain the best overall design. The service includes providing the best layout for picture captions, sidebars, and any information outside the main body of the text.
The service also includes the insertion and formatting of a table of contents, footnotes or endnotes should they be required and conversion to PDF.
The cost of this service depends upon the size of the manuscript, the quantity of images and/or graphics to be included, and effort necessary to design and create the final ready-to-print manuscript. Please contact us for a free, no-obligation quote.
WordSharp and its agents accept no liability for insertion of any images you do not own or have permission to use.

I’m really glad I let you help me. Without your help my book was going nowhere. I can’t believe what a first rate job in such a short period of time and at a low price. Wow, professional service with a blazing fast turnaround time. I really appreciate what you did for me.
You did an excellent job proofreading my dissertation quickly and carefully. You surpassed all of my expectations and made my dissertation publishable. You even fixed the tables! I thought that was well beyond what I could expect from a copyeditor at your rates. You made my work with a quite lengthy dissertation much easier. Your company is a lifesaver.
Let me express the sincerest appreciation for your efforts. You had really good suggestions that helped my book. The work was finished within a few days at a super rate. Your communication was always fast, courteous and personal. I would like to use the same editor for future novels. Best regards,
I have a lot of respect for you and your team. There is nothing worse for me than having to proofread my own stuff. Great job. My 249-page book was just sent to the publisher. My books receive the best reviews. I will use your services for a long time. You have a client for life.
My expectations were very high yet they were exceeded. Your work was extremely efficient. All of the comments are clear and easy to understand. Your turnaround time was unbelievable. You are worth every penny. I wish I could shake your hand. I definitely have and continue to recommend your services.
Approximately 15 files were copyedited over a seven-month period. There was a great deal to work through. I did not know what to expect. I wish I had found them sooner. My book sounds a lot better and flows really well. They came through for me.
Now I realize how essential it is to have a trained pair of eyes examine my work. You did a very expert and effective job of proofreading word usage, sentence structure, and grammar. These guys are prompt, professional, and their rates are good. I happily recommend them to anyone.
These pros left a permanent impression on me. I had never used an editing service before. You did extensive work. Especially good is your very low price. Now I’m confident to put my book on Amazon. I’ll certainly recommend you to my friends.
I just wanted to let you know you are terrific. Plainly, my book is of substantially higher quality because of your dedication, hard work, experience, and expertise. You didn’t even charge me for the extra work you put in! That really showed me your professionalism and integrity. You are an efficient and hardworking team. Excellent job. I’ll continue to use your service for post-grad work.
