With over 30 years of typesetting knowledge we have helped create a proverbial ‘mountain’ of books, building a reputation for accuracy and high-quality work with a friendly outlook, and always at very competitive rates. We have worked with some of the world’s most prestigious publishing houses and set titles for many household names … Terry Pratchett, Ben Elton, Monica Ali, Bill Bryson … the list is long.
More recent work includes the smash hits The Unmumsy Mum, The Girl on the Train and Their Finest, the latter two have been turned into major Hollywood films. Please have a look through our case studies at the foot of this page to find out more.
With our experience in the typesetting business we unashamedly think we are the best about, and with thousands of book and magazine titles to our name and working relationships dating back to the time we started, our customers obviously agree:
‘Through increasingly hectic times, Falcon has remained the friendly voice of calm, always delivering good work to schedule. Their level of service is simply unbeatable.’
‘We have been working with Falcon for over 35 years, and through many 100s, if not 1000s, of books, they have remained a most reliable and invaluable supplier.’
We want using Falcon to feel as close as it can be to having your own in-house typesetting and design department. We understand you will have your own way of working and we will make that our way of working, hitting your schedules and making your working life as easy as possible. We ensure our technology and methods are always up to date, so your files will have no compatibility issues if you need to supply them to a customer or in-house department.
These days most titles are made up from a supplied text document, but at Falcon we have a complete keying service if required, or we can copy edit your text from marked corrections or produce a text file from hard copy using Optical Character Recognition technology (OCR).
We have a team of highly experienced copy editors available to work through your book. They not only correct and make consistent any spelling issues but also check syntax and grammar to ensure your book reads and flows well. They work closely with the typesetting team to ensure the correct layout of headings, figures, tables and references in your book.Book design
As well as novels our back catalogue includes many more complicated layouts. We have a full in-house design team that will take your material and produced a beautifully finished book, ranging from simple page layout to complex page design and cover work. Over the years we have set many children’s titles, including a large number of the Horrible Science series, a host of monthly puzzle magazines, many instructional books including titles for the RYA and some beautifully designed full colour historical novels.
From the smallest piece of line art up to full colour images. We have a full in-house scanning service that can cater for your needs.Indexing
