We transform ordinary looking documents into stunning, professional looking documents

Document formatting is one our most popular services we provide to our clients.

You might be submitting a proposal next week and needs it to look extra sharp to impress your client. Perhaps you are trying to score a new job but your resume looks like it was created in 1995. Or your employees are using 10 different versions of the same document and now the formatting has gone all squiff and no one can seem to fix it.

These are just some of the reasons businesses seek our help.

Simply put, we bring documents to life. And we should… we have over 23 years experience of designing and formatting a huge range of documents for various types of industries. Check out our portfolio and see why we’re the experts in document formatting.

Our clients say…

“Karen was absolutely great in the creation of our proposal. The design and formatting is amazing, and very detail oriented.

We’re fast and we’re good

Our typical turnaround times for document formatting is within 3-4 business days.

We provide each client with a timeframe for each project as they can vary dependent upon the number of pages the document has and the amount of formatting required.

We also offer a rush service for short deadlines. Just let us know when you need it by and we will work with you.

All documents are kept private and confidential

All documents sent to us are treated as private and confidential. We never disclose documents to third parties without the author’s written approval. If required, we are always happy to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA).

Unless otherwise agreed with the client, That’s Creative! may use a low resolution copy of the document design as an example in our portfolio.

Ensure your document is “final” ready

To ensure we can design and format your document efficiently, all content must be supplied in FINAL format as delays and additional fees may apply.

Hire a professional proofreader or have one of your colleagues read through your document to ensure it flows well and punctuation and grammar is correct.

You can’t ignore the benefits

Whether you have an ebook or a proposal, our premium service adds considerable value to your document and it shows your readers you are serious about presenting a professional, polished-looking document.

If your document has a large amount of text, consider using call-out boxes to highlight important text or stock images to break up the “heaviness” of the page.

Custom icons can be used to illustrate tips, and drop caps can be used consistently at the start of each section or chapter.

At That’s Creative!, we don’t do “boring”. We transform documents.
