About Generic Compositors

The objective of Generic Compositors is quality development of books for academic, college, professional, reference, and trade markets published by university presses and commercial houses.
     While our traditional strength has been in typesetting, many of our clients also take advantage of other specialized services like editing and full service.
     The links to the right introduce you to Generic policies and capabilities. Broad concerns (who we are and what we feel about quality, price, and schedule) are covered first, followed by links to more specific areas of editing, composition, and full service.

For further information, please email us, including your name, affiliation, and areas of interest, and we will get back to you quickly.
