I’ve put together this list of some of the people I’ve worked with directly, heard about, or discovered online. I believe I’ve vetted this list to make sure the quality of samples was up to par, but make sure to do some research and ask for samples. Prices vary.

Also, if you know someone else who provides excellent service and quality, please recommend them so they can be added to this list.

Seedlings – great for contemporary or literary

EnvelUp – Great quality designs

Book Indexing Services

John Babb is an expert at indexing, which can be really time consuming – he’s agreed to offer the service for $5 per page, which I think is a good deal. You can reach him at: [email protected]

 

I also find some great quality on Elance, you might want to set up a project and see who bids.

Here are a couple I like:

Need a very specific photo or photo shoot? It may be pricy, but it it’s worth getting right.
