We will help you to decide which is the right Kindle format to convert to based on your overall goal for the digital availability of your book.  We convert the EPUB to the MOBI format for additional quality checks prior to sending the file back to you. The MOBI file is tested on all Kindle devices before you receive it.

ePUB Conversion

ePUB Conversion

As ePUB is an open source file format, it is very important to format the file in such a way that it works seamlessly on all platforms. Send us your book so we can decide which is the right file format (epub2, epub3, children’s graphic books) for your manuscript. We offer fast and affordable ePUB conversion services.

Fixed Layout

For files that are very heavy on graphics, formatting is important to maintain the layout. When this is the case, we recommend fixed layout formats. For example, Children graphic books would need to use Fixed Layout.
