Tikaldpink Pre-Press is a home-based computer service in Gorham, New Hampshire. It started when I began converting my own work from Word to eBook format.  Those early eBooking experiences gave way to preparing PDF files for whoever had a book to publish but lacked the skill set and tools to put it into a publisher-ready format.

My tools are a MacBook Pro 2.5 GHz i7 with 16 GB of memory, two ViewSonic monitors, an Epson Stylus NX230 scanner, and a wireless keyboard and mouse. I can bring my equipment to your home, or if you live too far away, you can send your analog materials to me via USPS and I'll return them to you with a flash drive containing the publisher-ready PDF file(s). If you have an internet connection, we can collaborate online.

I use Image Capture to scan, Adobe Bridge, Lightroom, & Photoshop, to correct, adjust, sort and store images, Microsoft Word, AutoCrit, and Online OCR to input and edit text, and iStudio Publisher to lay it all out in the required size and format. My final product is a file ready for submission to the publisher via flash drive or electronically. Books I produced are shown below. 

If you have a book but need help with the finishing touches, call me, (603) 915-6182, or email me, aldenter@gmail.com. I'll be happy to discuss your project and my going rate.
