"Layouting" is not "new." It has a long history of use in the print industry.

Your best argument against using it would probably be that it's obscure and outdated jargon that will give the reader the impression that your company is mired in the 19th century. You can support this with a Google search that will show one or two results for "layouting services" vs dozens for "layout services."
