User Manuals Frequently Asked Questions

What is a user manual?

A user manual is a document that demonstrates how to use a product or service.

You can choose to give your users a quick-start guide or a full manual, depending on your product and budget.

What types of user manuals do you produce?

Red Robot produces documentation for hardware and software. We publish user manuals online, in Word, as a PDF, and in other formats. We can also work in Adobe InDesign.

How much does a simple user manual cost?

Unfortunately, we can’t give you a simple answer since every user manual is different.

We take many things into account when developing a quote for user manuals, including:

  • the product or service
  • the complexity or level of experience your users have
  • the format(s) you want to produce
  • how complicated your layout or branding will be.

If you send us a quick message with an outline of your requirements, we should be able to get a quote to you a couple of days.

Do you offer graphic design for user manuals?

We can apply your branding to your user guide, but we don’t offer graphic design services. If you need tweaks to your logo or branding, it’s best to get that done first.
