Large image of multiple covers

To view more examples, go to http://bookcoversale.com

The turnover rate is dependent on each individual author, however, I can guarantee that the first mock will be sent within 1-5 days, dependent on my design schedule.

Each custom order includes:
-2 mock concepts
-Unlimited amount of revisions, including change of stock images at no additional charge
-High res stock images from shutterstock.com

To order, mail a query to [email protected] or drop me a message at the 'contact' tab of my website.

Below are my rates:

Custom ebook cover (1600x2400pixels): $50
Premade ebook cover (1600x2400pixels): $35
Full print cover (300dpi, size of your choosing): $85

For ebook covers, sizes below 2000x3000pixels can also be requested since I make all my covers at that size before making them smaller.

Upon request, I will also provide a free facebook or website banner.
In a worst case scenario, a full refund will be provided if I am unable to meet your cover needs.​

Please be sure to read the Art and Design posting guidelines.

Images should not be more than about 400 pixels by 400 pixels, and one should not upload entire galleries, which means please keep the number of images sensible.

There have been a number of nice images which have had to be replaced with links. They can return if resized and in some cases reduced in number.

Do you have any samples? You'd probably get more replies that way.

Wow, loads of awesome talent on here!

Hellooo all!

I'm a professional artist/designer. I've worked for Walter Foster, Hachette Group, and Luminis Books.

You can see samples of my work on my website:

http://www.rachelannemarks.com

Or my DeviantArt page:

http://thepix.deviantart.com

The Bottom Line: I charge from $50 for basic text layout on pre-purchased stock, to $150 for photo-manipulations with text design or basic character design, and $500 for original paintings/renderings. Pricing is negotiable depending on work involved. If preferred I charge $25 an hour.

My contract asks for 10% of the money up front--non refundable--and if work is not satisfactory in the end there is no need to pay me.

I work on a customer-lead basis, that means that my job is to make your vision become a reality--or maybe help you catch your vision, if it's alluding you.

*As an aside, for self published writers: I'm also a writer and have worked with, and critiqued, several Nebula winners as well as Hugo winners. I've been mentored in story and all its elements by Orson Scott Card and can spot character troubles from miles away. I offer overall book advice on a manuscript for $150 and line-by-line critique for $350. You can red my writing here: http://www.rachelannemarks.com/#!rachelmarksbooks/c1x9v

I do freelance website and graphic design under AngstyG, and I'm always looking for cover work!

Pricing:


  • $100 for ebook covers (750x1000px, @ 72 DPI) with up to 2 stock photos included in this price.
  • $250 for a full-spread print cover (sized based on printer specs and amount of pages). Includes front, spine, and back.

I have a lot of experience with Createspace cover specs, and I'm sometimes contracted for cover work with Dreamspinner Press. I have one in my portfolio, but I sadly do not offer illustrations. However, I am great at manipulations, which are quoted on a per stock fee basis!

Most of my stuff is romance, paranormal/fantasy, and M/M, but I'm 190% open to putting some variation into my portfolio.

I require 50% down payment. You can view my portfolio here. Some samples of my work are below.

Custom ebook covers for $75.

I have four years of experience working with authors, and the same amount preparing and manipulating stock images into original content for marketing campaigns.

I can only work with a handful of authors, so I'll only be contracting for the next month. Contact me at gale.haut.art(at)gmail(dot)com for a free consultation about your cover.

Hi all--

I've been designing covers for small presses and self-publishing clients for a number of years. I have experience designing for a wide range of genres: thriller, erotica, LGBT, non-fiction, memoir, children's books, etc. I do both photo-manipulation and illustration, so if you're looking for something unique for your book, please get in touch!

My clients include Dystel & Goderich, Lethe Press, and a number of other indie publishers.
Front covers start at $300, and full covers at $450. You will be provided with both print-ready and ebook file sizes.

More examples of my work can be found on my site.

Hi everyone! I'm Brigid, and I'm a college student studying creative writing and the visual arts. I'm interested in graphic design and illustration, and I'm always happy to use my artistic skills to assist fellow writers. This past year I designed the cover for Tabitha Suzuma's novel HURT, published by Definitions (an imprint of Random House Children's Publishing UK). I have also worked with several self-published authors to create book covers and illustrations.

You can get more information and see samples of my work on my website.

Since I'm just starting out and I use royalty-free or original artwork, my prices are fairly low right now. At the moment I am charging $75 per cover/illustration. If you're looking for something simple and affordable, my work is something you may be interested in. Please see my website (linked above) for my contact information. Thank you!

Hello you lovely People out there!

My Name is Isabelle and i recently started a Cover Design Business at http.//www.coverglory.com.

I work with Royalty Free High Resolution Pictures (included in Price) and Photo Manipulation, where needed.

What i like the most in the Process of creating a Cover is to get to know the Author's Vision and then melt it into something, that transports the Essence of the Book at first Glance.

I'd love to do the same for your written Words! So if my Post speaks to you, please get in Contact with me over my Contact Form at http://www.coverglory.com/contact/ and let's talk!

Since i am fairly new in this, i still haven't a polished and extensive Pricing List. But if you let me know, what you are in need of, i can calculate Effort and Price accordingly.

As a rought Guideline i'd say: A custom Cover with mild Photo Manipulation around $97 Dollars.

Of Course i offer matching FB Covers, Banners ect. Just let me know, what you are in need of!

Oh, and not to forget:

This Weekend i am running a Labor Day Special on my Fanpage for a Custom Cover for $69 . One of the four Spots is already gone, a second one maybe. So if you are on the Fence, now is the Time to grab the Deal!

And everyone else, that comes after the four Spots are gone and still wants a Custom Cover, will get either a 3D Cover or a Facebook Timeline Cover for free. How's that?

I also offer premade Covers and love to do that! But my Collection is still very small, since i was busy all the time since starting my Site. But for you to have something to see, please have a look here. If you'd ask me to describe my Style, i'd say that i prefer the clean, clear Look. In my Opinion a Cover does not necessarily need to have a lot going on there. It is not about the Quantity, but the Quality and the Placement of the visual Ingredients. And more often then not less is more. But that does not mean, that i don't like Colours, Flowers, Swirls and the Likes. They too have their Place. ;)

Demo-Covers-2.jpg
Demo-Covers-1.jpg



Oh Genres! I am open to every genre except very explicit Erotica (in doubt just contact me and i will tell you if it's out of my Comfort Zone ;) ) and Horror (if it involves me having to stare on chopped of heads, decaying bodies and similar things for hours in photoshop. Same here, in doubt just ask). Sorry, it just gives me bad moods, and my Kids deserve a happy Mom.

But rest assured that if i take on a Project, i pour my heart into it.

Thanks for reading this Post and i look forward to any Project you might throw in my Direction! :)

Hi everyone,

My name's Debbie and I run The Cover Collection. We have ebook cover designs in most genres. All our pre-made covers are £30 (we have a sale section where all designs are £20) There are over 250 pre-made ebook covers on the website at the moment and more are added every few days.

You receive several initial design draft options to choose from to enable us to get your cover exactly how you want it. Turnaround once design elements have been agreed is usually the same day. We also offer unlimited revisions until you're 100% happy.

Here are some examples of our recent designs that are currently available on the website:
