Custom Design

PressBooks is driven by customizable templates: build a template once, and export as many times as you want in every format (EPUB, MOBI, PDF), and books/documents will come out with the correct design specs. Correct your document once, re- export in all formats. We offer free templates for users, and design custom templates for clients.
