Hire the best typesetters in the United States


Typesetting, also known as book or page layout design, is an aspect of book design relating to the interior of a book. It uses many of the skills and knowledge needed in graphic design to assemble pages that work as an aesthetically beautiful and functional composition. For graphically complex book genres across fiction and nonfiction (think cookbooks, children’s books featuring several illustrations, textbooks, or poetry books), a typesetter will carefully consider their client’s requirements to synthesize a design that balances beauty with ease of reading.


When first approaching a typesetter for hire to discuss your manuscript’s layout needs, it’s important to clearly communicate your ideas. Include practical information like whether you’ll be printing your project or not, whether you already have a cover design that the interior’s typography should align with, as well as minor details relating to your book’s front matter, for example what your publisher’s logo looks like. If you’re looking for a print layout, also make sure to discuss materials and different types of paper with your designer.


On Reedsy’s marketplace, we’ve got some of the best typesetters for hire in the United States and beyond. We hand pick just 3% of applicants who can demonstrate they’ve got the experience, skills, and passion needed to guide authors to success, so you can expect to work with a qualified typesetter.
