Mission Point Press can help large or small institutional clients publish their own commemorative books. We understand that publishing a book, especially within a complicated organization, is no small undertaking. We have deep experience in helping to facilitate the planning and process of pulling a book’s content together into a coffee-table-style book or other form.


Specifically, we can:


  • Meet with your organization’s coordinating committee or key players to help develop a concept for the book, a page plan and a production schedule.
  • Provide ideas on how to specifically structure the editorial content and look of your book given your target audience and other goals of publication.
  • Create some or all of your book’s content:  Do you need a writer?  A co-author?  Photography?  Illustrations?
  • Provide editing services, so your book not only flows but is error-free as well.
  • Provide design services, so your book is visually striking and well organized.
  • Print your book.
  • Convert your book to an e-book.
  • Consult on marketing and distributing the finished book.
