Typesetting

The founders of Set & Match were typesetters and compositors by training. Things moved on from the hot metal days; and we moved ahead of them. We were early adopters of computerised page layout and provided that service to printers in Birmingham and beyond. We maintained that lead and today use the most current software and hardware.
The old page layout skills are still valid, on screen and on paper. They are available to you as a freelance typesetting bureau. Send us your projects and free up your time whilst we give your words the stage that they deserve.

Make your story a page turner.

Successful layout of text on a page is a balance of art and science.
Polished, professional prose looks better than just good. It needs to work for your reader, keeping them engaged and communicating your message.
We will typeset your copy to work best in your chosen publication, be it magazine, annual report, technical catalogue or book.
You are the queen (or king) of content, so we won’t edit, just polish. We can work to your design template or advise on fonts, pagination or layout. You will get to review and amend a proof before finalising your file.
