Frequently Asked Questions
Just add a cover to your cart either Ebook or Ebook and full jacket. Full payment is due upon purchase., price vary per design. Continue the checkout process via PayPal. All Ebook covers are sized to 2650px x 1500px.
I will contact you via email within 24-48 hours to discuss with you any changes you need for your cover: font changes, minimal color changes, addition of author & book title and tagline. Three changes are included in the price listed. If you are requesting a full jacket I will ask for your page count for spine and book size as well as any back cover text.
Once you approve the final cover I will send you a high res jpeg, PNG and PDF for your use. If you purchased a full jacket it will be print ready with crop marks.
Process CUSTOM COVERS
Once you have contacted me I will get back to you within 24-48 hours. All communication will be done via phone or email. If you have specific ideas for your cover or you need some help coming up with imagery we can work together on a plan.
I will ask you sign a contract for work and place you on the schedule. Once the signed contract has been received and I have a clear understanding of your vision, I will begin the brainstorming process.
From there it will generally take me 1-2 weeks to complete a proof. Depending on the amount of revisions the entire process through completion
can take about a month.
How many cover options are included in the price?
Generally I create one cover design per book, unless you have specifically requested more than one up front.
Per book cover/artwork I offer 3 sets of revisions. If additional revisions are requested,
a nominal fee will be assessed.
Can I use my own photo/artwork?
If you own the photo/artwork then yes you can, I just ask that the imagery is 300dpi and licensed for commercial use. I would suggest you read the licensing terms from your stock imagery company and make sure you have the obtained the correct rights prior to design commencing.
How do I credit you in my book?
Credit must be included in front of book.

What if I change my mind or want to change direction after work has begun?
Understandably if you have changed your mind about your vision we can discuss moving forward with the new ideas. This will impact my work schedule for other clients so I just suggest if you do want additional changes not included in your contracted agreement you let me know ASAP. Additional fees will apply.
How do you handle payment?
After a contract for services is signed, all payments are done through PayPal with 50% down prior to any design beginning.
Drop me a line and we can discuss your needs. In addition to custom artwork, if you have an existing logo or book cover and need an author banner, t-shirts, book marks etc, I can help you with promotion and advertising as well as getting you ready for your launch.
