Adobe Digital Editions

There are a variety of options for publishers who want to create digital editions. Some vendors provide a high service model, where publishers can simply send a pdf and detailed instructions to their vendor. The vendor then creates the digital edition from scratch and provides a high quality product the publisher can offer its readers. Unfortunately, high service comes at a high price. This kind of vendor is ideal for a company with a big budget and no time to get involved in creating a digital edition.
