What output formats does DocAlign support?

How long does the publication process take?

The actual typesetting is the quickest part of the process. Careful preliminary work and accurate specifications are the key to ensuring optimum speed and efficiency – so well-prepared data minimizes the time it takes to process a publication. 

Your finished publication will usually be ready within a few days. Your first project will typically take about 5 days. Subsequent publications of the same type have a turnaround time of a maximum of 4 hours, depending on the complexity and volume of data. 

What format should my source documents be in?

Documents to be typeset must be a DOC, DOCX, or ODT file. You should use styles in your document, so that the import process can run fully automated.

Image data and graphics can either be integrated in the text or delivered separately. If images are delivered separately, a reference to each image is required in the text. The image quality should correspond with the quality requirements for the output channel (DPI, color profile, intended output and size). Images can be in many formats (jpg, tiff, gif, svg, ai, eps or png).
