Book Layout and Website Design
We offer self-published authors and churches (and small businesses - anyone actually) affordable design, layout and web services. It's that simple. We've included some samples with the pricing and service descriptions below.
The Basics - How We Bid
Every job is different and we will give you a quote based on your book's/website's size, requirements, and your vision for the look and feel of the project as you describe it to us. The prices listed below represent our minimum charges based on the following assumptions:
Once the job has exceeded these expectations, additional costs will be incurred. As always, there is no extra cost for correcting errors on our part, and within reason, we will correct your errors for no extra cost as well.
We understand that your book is very important to you and we also realize many authors have never been though the publishing process before. We will do our best to accommodate your needs and desires. However, we have found that without set limits, projects can drag on without enhancing or advancing the finished product. We will, however, continue to work with you until you are happy with the product, but we cannot do this without compensation.

Need a more complex website?
The fine print:
Website price includes up to five pages, graphic optimization, text review and placement, search engine optimization (SEO). Price does not include writing/creating content for web pages, media kit, etc. Prices also do not include expenses - i.e. original art, stock photos, web hosting, domain name. Client may supply art or purchase/commission original art from an outside source or one recommended by us.
Yeah, we do those, too. We tend to work cheap for churches, especially if they stay with us for their site maintenance. Drop me an email and we can talk price, which will be based on complexity (mostly number of pages) and what will need to be updated regularly.
Here's some examples of sites we built and still maintain.
Bethany Evangelical Lutheran Church - Ishpeming, MI (BethanyIshpeming.org)
Eden Evangelical Lutheran Church - Munising, MI (EdenOnTheBay.org)
Winds of the Prairie Ministries - Southwestern MN (WindsOfThePrairie.org)
We will maintain your website as long as you'd like, no contract, no commitment. Half-hour minimum.
Larry started designing ads for his college newspaper in 1988, to be close to his wife who was an editor at the time. He's stuck with it, designing and writing print- and web-based materials ever since. Since graduating in 1995, he's been on staff at organizations ranging in size from 40 offices world-wide to a Lutheran Church with seven employees. He's done freelance work throughout that time, creating websites, brochures, etc. for friends, family and small businesses.
His background is fairly diverse. He was a welder once upon a time. But he's spent a lot of time writing, editing and tinkering with computers since then. He is comfortable with a wide range of programs and enjoys creating visually appealing and practical websites, books and promotional materials. We've included a synopsis of his resume and some layout samples below.
