PRINT DESIGN OF PAPERBACK BOOK COVERS AND HARD COVER DESIGN

We offer paperback book covers as well as hard cover design or book wrappers!

We offer book cover print design for new designs as well as designs from existing ebooks. Book cover print design is available for hardcover wraps and paperback book covers. Print designs can also be made from our premade ebook cover designs.

Details Matter

We design paperback book covers and do hard cover design with printing compatibility in mind. With more than 15 years of design-for-print experience, we can foresee problematic areas with book cover designs and make appropriate adjustments so your printed book cover will print as expected. This includes cover formatting, color consistency, bleed, banding correction and overall image scrutiny. We take the time to ensure that your book cover design will always have consistent results when reproduced or printed.

Title Page Design

Match your title page to your cover design! Custom title page designs can include title, author name, graphics and more! Please visit our graphic design page for more information.

How to Get Started!

Our getting started page goes through the process of starting custom design step-by-step. Ordering a print design is as simple as emailing with your interest and we will reply within 1-2 business days. All of our cover design work is done on a first come, first served basis. We do not schedule work or reserve time.

Requirements to Start

For all book cover print design projects we require the final PDF print template from your printer.  The template should be generated with the correct spine size based on the final page count and show bleed. The template should include the front cover, spine, and back cover. This template should not be created until all interior formatting is complete. If adjustments are needed later due to new sizing, additional fees and service time would apply. All printers have their own unique templates.

For non-fiction book cover design we may need significant direction in order to create the cover design due to the expertise of the subject matter and/or personal nature of the book. We do not need a copy of the book in full or part to begin design.

Print Design File Package

Print designs are created and precisely sized using the PDF print template provided. Completed print cover design files are provided as a flattened PDF print ready file and in JPG format for online promotion. Ebook cover files for new designs are created from the front of the print design. The size of the ebook file is determined by the size of the print template. For example: A 5.25x8 print book cover will have the a 5.25x8 ebook design. Common fiction print book cover dimension trim sizes include 5x8, 5.25x8, 5.5x8.5, and 6x9. Size edits or new formatting based on a print template change after the design work has started may incur additional fees. 

Ebook files are included with NEW print designs only, they are not included with print design from existing ebook covers. Finished files are flattened and are not editable. Editable files are not available for our cover designs.
