To order a cover:
- Send me the name and category of the cover, as well as all the text details you want on the cover – title, author name and sub-title (if any) to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- I will send a sample cover. The sample is watermarked and in a small size. I will also provide my Paypal payment details.
- Once you approve of the sample you can pay by Paypal. I will then send you two larger sizes of the cover –
File Type and Size: I provide a JPEG format, and my size is made to the proportions of 6 x 9, 3200 x 4800 width. This accommodates the new bigger Amazon cover size as of June 2014. I also provide a smaller cover of 1600 x 2400 pixels for upload to platforms that require a smaller size – Barnes & Noble, Smashwords and Kobo. Please read my full article on ebook cover sizes here for more information.The 3200 x 4800 size can also be used with Createspace’s online Cover Creator, though the text elements may have to be moved to avoid bleedspace. I will do this at your request for a fee of $12. For a full ready-to-upload paperback cover version, please refer to this page.
Note: Font changes are free but all changes to the image itself are $12 – 30 extra, depending on complexity. If any changes to the image are required, full payment must be made BEFORE I will work on the changes, as it takes valuable design time to make image changes. Changes involve things such as changing eye colour or dress colour, if possible in that particular image. I do not change whole backgrounds or characters, as images are merged and not on separate layers that can just be swapped out. Changes often affect the whole composition in terms of colour and balance and texture, so I may not agree to make any changes at all, depending on the image.
A premade cover is sold only once. It is yours exclusively. It is not a template. Source images are legally purchased from stock image sites. Most of my premades are composite covers made from several stock images, or if made from a single image it is altered and combined with a distinctive text layout so it becomes unique. Source stock images however are not exclusive – they are bought with a standard image license.
