Outsourcing provider Bluepen Publishing Solutions has recently expanded its editorial staff to meet the growing needs of its clients. Bluepen has added to its roster a number of experienced editors, many with specialties in fiction, non-fiction, and academic texts. The company’s list of editorial services include copyediting, proofreading, and indexing.
“With two of our clients increasing their editorial requirements, it was high time to increase our editor staff to meet their needs,” says Bluepen CEO Rocky Teodoro. The Philippines-based company maintains a mix of full-time and freelance editors in order to be flexible in meeting the highs and lows of each of its clients’ workloads.
In a related development, Bluepen may soon expand its services to include book cover design. “We have had several inquiries about book cover design,” says Teodoro. “We have typesetters who also have experience designing book covers, so it will be easy to begin offering this service.”
To date, the company’s customers all have positive reviews of their service. The managing editor of a Manhattan-based publisher client said that “Bluepen has been doing a great job on our copyediting, proofreading, and indexing tasks.” According to Teodoro, the customer satisfaction of the company’s customers is due to the stringent selection process for editors and the country’s natural inclination for English proficiency.
Bluepen Publishing Solutions (bluepenps.com) is located in Ortigas, a major business district in Metro Manila Philippines. Publishers and other companies looking to outsource editorial and other services can E: or call.
