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.

Man you people are the best! Honestly! You are one of the most professional and customer service conscious companies I’ve ever dealt with. I’ll be happy to refer anyone your way for book editing and editing or serve as a reference if anyone else asks for a reference.
Thank you very much for clearing up the areas of concern. This will allow me to compile the needed sources and address the issues. You have done an outstanding job and will be getting chapters 4 and 5 of my dissertation when the time comes. Terry
Dissertation defense on March 17... Will keep you posted! I will refer your company to others. You were a God-send!!! Traci (Traci passed her dissertation defense with flying colors)
Quick turnaround! You made it easy knowing I don’t have to worry about errors. I’ve hired you twice and you will do all of my book editing from now on.
I can’t believe how much time I saved having you proofread my manuscript. I am very pleased with the book editing and will be sending you more in the future.
Writing a manuscript can be time consuming and tedious. WordSharp made the book editing process easy. Having a manuscript editor and corrector with professional knowledge in business proofreading made a big difference. Additionally, everyone there was always professional.
