DESIGN

Just select one of the design packages or services and click on the order button to make a 50% deposit.

All my design services come with unlimited (common sense) revisions. I am happy when you are happy otherwise you’ll get a refund. It’s simple as that.

I am specialized in creating high-end compositions with heavy photo manipulation. I usually take own photos or use stock sites to license third-party images. I then extract certain parts of several images and blend them together to create something new and unique.

Depending on the package you selected you’ll either get a 72dpi graphic in PDF and JPEG format or a high-resolution 300dpi version for print. eBook covers have a size of 1600×2560 pixel, which is the standard kindle size. The size of a print cover depends on your book format.

Of course, just make sure that any photo, logo or artwork comes in 300dpi high-resolution suitable for print. Keep in mind that you must have the legal right to use the photo, logo or artwork!

You can provide images in any file format but prefferably as JPEG or PNG.

Once I have designed your book cover and/or promo graphics, I’ll send you the finished files as download link via eMail or messenger. Whatever you prefer.

Sure, just get in touch with me when you want to publish a printed book.

After I have received the project details, I will start with the design process.
Typically I will have a first cover draft ready for you to review within 2-3 days.

I always do my best to work directly with you to ensure that I fully understood your requirements. However, if you are not completely satisfied with the draft I’ll create another one for you. If you are still not happy with the second draft we can end the project and you’ll get a full refund.

Of course. In this case I need to adjust the size of the spine once you provide the page count. After this I will send you a print-ready cover.

Just contact me if you need any changes. Minor adjustments are free but if major changes are required, additional charges might apply.

Some packages don’t include the editable source files but you can anytime get them for an additional fee.

Payment

You can make payment via Paypal or any major credit card. Wire transfers are possible on request.

A deposit of 50% is required in advance. Upon delivery of the finished cover you can make the final payment. If you are not happy with the cover your deposit will be refunded.

You don’t have to pay anything extra unless you want me to license a specified image with exclusive rights. Keep in mind that normal stock images come with a non-exclusive license. In some rare cases where the design requires any one-off commissioned photo or artwork, there may be additional charges. I may also use rights-managed stock sites. Sometimes it’s simply not possible to find a suitable royalty-free image. Prices vary, but if this is required you will be informed by me.

Yes, I offer a 30% discount for orders of 3 or more books in a series. Discounts only apply to book cover packages and not promo graphics, banners, websites etc. All covers must be ordered at the same time.

GENERAL

I will create a unique website for you with up to 5 pages (Home, Books, About Me, Contact etc.) This website can be used to promote your books and to brand yourself as an author. It’s a great way to connect with your readers. You can fully administrate the site and easily add and modify the contents yourself.

Yes, you need a hosting account and own domain name. For an additional fee I can care about everything and register the domain and host the site on my own server. Please contact me to discuss further details.

Royalty-free means that you don’t have to pay additional fees for the images and photos.
