Music and Typesetting Services
A-R Editions provides the complete range of production services for books, journals, and music. For over 50 years, we have produced high-quality publications, and would be delighted to assist you with your publication big or small. Here are the things we can help you with:
Our engraving staff and font-creation specialists have customized Finale to accommodate the notation style of any time period, achieving the highest quality and a great look for your project.
We can typeset your publications from your Microsoft Word files. We run Mac-based QuarkXpress with all the extensions to handle your project or we can work in Adobe InDesign if that’s what you need. We are experienced in text-and-music integration and adept in foreign languages. Output is delivered as 600-dpi page proofs and 1200-dpi final output PDFs. The digital files are yours to keep.
Our production staff has copyediting experience in music, of course, but also in a range of subject areas, including the humanities and social sciences, as well as trade books and fiction. We’re experts in using The Chicago Manual of Style and other style guides. All our work is thoroughly proofread. That’s a step that many are cutting out to save a buck. Not us.
Printing and Distribution
Take advantage of low Midwest printing costs. We provide affordable, high-quality work for short or long runs, one or multi-color printing, and a variety of binding options. We can also manage the distribution and storage of your publications.
We are a publisher and we know book making and print production. Put our experienced project managers to work on your project. They can help you understand all the steps involved and keep you on schedule and within budget.
