As a book maker, you're crafting a product that's been perfected over centuries, and technology shouldn't get in your way.
Hederis is a ground-breaking platform that gives you the speed of automation, combined with the quality of traditional book layout. From preparing your manuscript for layout, building a design template, making sure your pages are balanced and lines are breaking in the right places, and fine-tuning all the details that reflect your professional standards, Hederis can help.
Hederis gives you book production and design tools to create high-quality print-ready PDFs and ebook files, ready for distribution, in a fraction of the time it takes with traditional book-production processes.
Hederis Is Made for Books
Our tools are built by publishing professionals for real book-making workflows. Switch between print and ebook previews or tighten a line with a click of a single button, change your page dimensions or the text of your running headers all in the same window, drag-and-drop to adjust your file order and choose which sections to include in the print book vs. the ebook. We understand how and why you work the way you do, and we're working every day to make it easier for you to focus on the tasks you enjoy.
Hederis Is Made for Teams
It takes a lot of people to make a book, which usually translates to a lot of waiting.
Hederis gives you a suite of intuitive tools centralized in one place, so that each person can do their job and instantly share their work with the other members of their book-making team.
Hederis Is Made for People
No need to become a computer programmer or learn a whole new set of terminology! Our tools reflect our dozens of years of publishing experience, so that you can start making books fast.
