Morton CustomLab Program

About Morton CustomLab

Morton's CustomLab program provides full-service custom publishing with the same high-quality product, personal customer service, and affordable pricing that you have come to expect with our best-selling line of lab manuals, photographic atlases, ad dissection guides. Choose the option that best sutis your needs, and we will work with you to create your ideal lab manual. We strive to make the customization process as smooth as possible for you.

Through our robust CustomLab program, you can customize one of our existing manuals, custom publish your own material, or create a manual combining your material with ours, including access to our lab exercises and image library to provide more visual support for your manual.

It is our goal to earn your business and to ensure that you are happy with your custom lab manual. All Morton titles are delivered three-hole drilled, loose-leaf, and shrink-wrapped to allow students to incorporate other class materials into their lab manual. Morton believes our customers should be happy with their CustomLab manual. We print our CustomLab manuals on demand so there is no contractual obligation.

Enrollment minimums apply. For more information please contact our CustomLab Editor

Custom Services

Project Management services

Project Management

We have a dedicated Custom Editor, Adam Jones, who will oversee your custom project from the beginning to end. He will answer your questions, collect your manuscript, manage it through the production process, provide a price quote, create an ISBN, and ensure the project is printed and delivered on time.

Typesetting

For annual enrollments of 300 students or more, we can typeset your custom manual. "Typesetting" is the process of taking your manuscript (e.g. Microsoft Word document) and putting it into a design so that it has a professional layout. By using our typesetting service, it allows you to spend more time on the content and less time on the formatting.

Image Library

We have thousands of beautiful photographs and professionally drawn illustrations in our image library. You may include these photographs and illustrations in your custom lab manual.

Printing and Fulfillment

Morton can print and deliver your custom manual to the bookstore. Custom books are "print on demand" meaning that the book is printed when an order is received, with a typical turnaround of just a few days.
