Producing Print-Ready PDFs with Affinity 


A 4-week Course with R J Mirabal

  • 1:30 – 3:30 pm MT (NOTE: November 12, time: 2:30 – 4:30 pm MT)
  • Platform: IN PERSON CLASS at the SWW Offices

This month-long class consists of four meetings to train authors how to format the text portion of their books for professional printing. High-end PDFs required by printers and most author services such as IngramSpark, Lulu, and others are usually restricted to expensive graphic arts programs that cost hundreds of dollars in yearly subscriptions.

This training will use Affinity Publisher, available for purchase ($55), not subscription, (free 30-day trial available in November). The class is different from other formatting classes because it takes you to the final production of a print-ready document. You will have the option to list your printed book on Amazon and the major book catalogs, especially Ingram. Also, all book printing services including print-on-demand services such as Lightning Source; and all online outlets like Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Apple Books, etc. Most full-service printers can also print books from these PDFs
