* These rates are for singular projects, not for signed composers. Once signed, there are no engraving fees for composers who publish with us.

** FDPublications employs qualified individuals with experience in music and music technology. With a combined eleven years of engraving experience, we are quick and concise – our time is extremely valuable, so why should your time and money be any less important?


FDPublications is able to produce music of all reasonable sizes.

Composers who publish with us may choose from coil or staple binding for any of their size and part preferences.

Composers have an active say in the design of their covers. Works default to a textured solid color background with white lettering, however, if the composer desires something unique we are more than happy to create a design.

Composers who sign with us are given first say in publication design and are an active part of the initial production process. Once the basics of engraving, cover design, and binding preferences are finalized, FDPublications take care of the rest from there. You need not worry about how your music is appearing out in the world, because you help decide. FDPublications believes strongly in collaboration foremost, and wants to do the greatest justice to your music.
