Say goodbye to:

Font copyright issues

No copyrighted fonts are used in the process even though we preserve the original appearance of the printed products. There is no font obfuscation necessary.

Source files

All work is done from PDF; no InDesign or source files are required.

Excessive review time

For Fixed Layout, 100% correspondence to PDF is guaranteed.

Math and table problems

Where these are present in the PDF as vectors/text, they will be delivered as HTML coded text, enhancing clarity and functionality.

Vendor hassles

Fixed layout ePub files can be uploaded to all major vendors.

Language issues

The process is language-agnostic. Right to left languages are easily converted.

Every book title available for distribution on desLibris has been rendered in HTML5 from a print or other PDF supplied by the publisher. Fixed layout ePUBs are simply “packaged” HTML. So the book that you see on desLibris is an exact rendering of the Fixed layout ePUB you will receive. The Reflowable ePUB version will be different only with respect to page layout, which is what makes it “reflowable.”
