What we do

Avon DataSet are traditional Typesetters. We still accept manuscripts of all types, hand written or typed, and we re-key them. We don’t use OCR as we have had poor results in all our tests – even of the latest software currently available.

Our keying team can easily turn most manuscripts around in just a few days before we start to process the text and, if required, illustrations etc. into pages of all designs as specified by you, the customer.

Whether keyed in or supplied as a Word document our skilled staff use our own in-house, specially developed, methods to ensure every aspect of the publication is set to exacting standards.

Having produced samples for you to approve, together with a ‘cast off’ for extent we then put the finishing touches to the pages before we proof out. Proofs can either be delivered electronically as a PDF or traditionally printed and sent by our couriers to the customers address, or both of course.

Following proof reading any corrections are taken in and again we can proof out for final checking. On approval we supply a finished, fully print ready High Resolution PDF for your printers.

To compliment our typesetting and epub services, we also offer scanning, using our own high-resolution scanner up to A3 size. We scan to a variety of formats and can just scan and supply if that is all you need.

We integrate, charts, graphs, illustrations or all kinds in to any page design you want – with or without bleed etc.
