Hi everyone! I'm Katie, I'm a cover designer and I've been around for about 5 or 6 years now. I own Broken Arrow Designs, and I do book covers, websites, logos and basically everything else (including 'swag') authors need. You can see my work HERE.

My prices for Print On Demand books start at $90 for eBook, $110 for paperback. I've done covers in almost every genre, but YA, fantasy, epic fantasy, Paranormal and anything close to that are my strong points! Contact me at [email protected] for more info :)

Hi all!

I'm Jamie, The Noble ArtistI'm a cover artist working mainly in fantasy, sci-fi and horror. I have also worked in the thriller, romance, non-fiction and comedy genres.
I also create maps, character profiles and other interior artwork (and a lot of work for board games too!). You can follow what I'm working on, on Facebook where I post my work in progress.

Every piece of work I illustrate is a bespoke "from scratch design" based on the needs of the author. I'm highly communicative, friendly (some people might even laugh at my jokes from time to time) and have a lot of experience in self-publishing. If you would like some testimonials you can see what loads of authors and other clients have been saying about me over on Linkedin. My rates fall between $600USD- $1000USD depending on the complexity of the design. I do my very best to accommodate the budget of my client, so never be afraid to ask. Contact me at [email protected]

I hope to work with you soon!

I haven't used this forum for a long time, as I've been especially busy.

The reason I've been so busy is because I've been undergoing a re-brand. This kind of information is really inconsequential, however, a result of this re-brand is that Geoffrey Bunting Graphic Design is now offering ready-to-publish book covers for the first time in its history (either as The Ugly Tree Graphic Design or Geoffrey Bunting Graphic Design).

It upsets me that so many independent authors that cannot afford tailored covers have to turn to the kind services that proliferate this part of the industry; services that take advantage of these low budgets to sell sub-par work. Cheap doesn't have to mean bad. So Geoffrey Bunting Graphic Design offers genuinely professionally-made covers at prices ranging from $110 to $150. We use an email system to make sure our customers get the same service they would if they were commissioning a bespoke cover. Head over to the site to check it all out.

Hello! I'm Aimee, or as I usually go by, Lyn. I've made book covers for myself for upcoming books I am writing, but have decided to offer my services.
Most of the premade covers are fairly simple for the most part, but custom covers are always a lot more detailed with more images and effects if wanted.

Premade covers will always be $100 or less. Custom covers will vary depending on what you need and I will be more than happy to give you a quote and I will do my best to work on the budget you have!

I am still working on uploading more images of covers for sale and examples.

You can look at my Facebook or my Website

Cover Illustrations for you

Hi all,

I recently turned my attention to illustrating for book covers, having been involved in computer graphics (2D/3D) and other computer imaging related malarkey. My main themes are in sci-fi and horror, as I build up my collection I'll turn my hand to others such as thriller and action. My styles range from 'grungey' (ideal for horror) to vibrant and crisp planetscapes and spacecraft.
I'd like to build up some partnerships with indie authors in particular, and hopefully have such authors consider my designs further down the line.

I'm aiming to start prices at $50 for the grungey and abstract style covers rising to around $100 for the more detailed images. Something I'd like to offer for the higher price range is a degree of customisation, if it's possible then I'll integrate a character type, object or environment for example to make it relevant to the story. Single supplied image will be sized as requested for E-Book or print resolution.

Still building my gallery, here's a small taster of my work, along with more (some pre-mades and some in progress) at https://jagged-edge.weebly.com/

Hope this may be of interest to you.

Original Hand-drawn and Digital Illustrated Book Covers

Hi everyone,

I'm a writer and professional illustrator (see www.garethsouthwell.com). I've been working in illustration for about 15 years, mostly for magazine and book publishing. I'm currently trying to do more cover design, so for a limited time I'm offering a discount price for self-published authors. For the first 3 customers a single cover (not wrap around) will be $150 (approx. £100). Prices will rise gradually after that (for the next 3, $200; the next 3, $250 - and so on), until we reach the going rate.

Below are some examples of my work - check out my website for more. I also run The Illustrated Book Club, where I discuss cover design and illustrate classic texts, which has more stuff. As I say, these are a combination of hand-drawn and digital art - there are plenty of excellent designers who use stock photography and photoshop for very professional results. But if you want something a little different, with a more distinctive look - perhaps for children's books, non-fiction, or something with an element of humour - then please get in touch to discuss things.

Hello and welcome to the forums, agrikoo. I’ve moved your post to the dedicated thread we have for cover artists seeking work.

As per the Art & Design posting guidelines sticky, please reduce the size of your images to an area roughly 400x400 pixels each. Thank you.

EDIT: As it has been more than a week, I have changed the images to links to the images. Please abide by our size requirements in future.

Hello, illustrator, graphic designer (web and print), 3D generalist (a bunch of areas, almost all) and comic artist (penciller, inker, colorist, not letterist but can do) here.

Having worked before in other fields, looking forward to making some very nice book covers here. :)

Reading the rules, I guess I totally fit in the "Bargain-basement ($50 - $200)" category. :D . I'm quite experienced as a professional, but starting in the writing community/field. So, is kind of fair.

- Price per illustrated cover : 150 $ design/text included. Or 200 $ when asked a wrap around, also all design/text included.
- Styles: Can do many, but I particularly love realism/digital painting. Can do children book style, cartoon, stylized comic, etc.
- Genres : A bit unsure, yet. I know for sure I'd quite fit in mostly in Fantasy, Sci-Fi, historic, current times realism. The rest, I'm not sure, but probably quite a few more.
- Due to theme/genre, or theme treatment, I might not go for just every project. Also, my illustration production is not as fast as my photo retouch ability, so I'll have to choose somehow, anyway.
- I am quite able (has been my profession for many years) to do all with photo retouch and graphic design instead of illustration and painting. But is not my purpose, or not for the majority of the covers.
- In the distant past I have done covers for other types of product, or for books many years ago, my take, my recommendation for it is to focus in one aspect of the book, a significant one, instead of trying to cram the cover with elements. But I will adapt to whichever the author's requirements.
- All usage rights to you, the person buying it, no limits (other than not using as resell as cover or stock art). Limitless for your book to be published.
- The images will be unique, custom made, and only used for your book (my only use will be to show them as my portfolio, the usual thing).
- I might upload a reduced sample to my website and/or social media for promotion.
- I don't claim for royalties, either, of any kind.
- No temporary license, is for ever, and
- I get no right to sell that cover illustration for anything. Never.
- I am not in this as a fast mass producer (I might become way faster if petitions pile up, as then I can balance the load of my other work, dedicate more time to this).
- Initially, my covers will mean a time frame of 3 weeks - 1 month (so, great for people planning, not with an urgent need), done with a lot of care (and passion).
- Could sign a contract or NDA contracts (within reasonable conditions), so that you get peace of mind about usage rights, image exclusivity, etc, if you need it/require it.
- It will be a 300 dpi, ready for print cover, but I'm new to the writing field, I can adapt to any print specs (quite some experience with offset and POD print companies), I just need to be pointed out to the format wished, I'll dig whatever the specs (AMS Kindle, specific size, etc, is something I can deal with once knowing the link for those specs. No hassle for you. I have already those matters a bit located)

I might change these conditions at some point (/s) but never ever during a started and agreed upon project, of course.

For this or other works/petitions, I can do illustration, graphic design (ie, logos, banners, etc) /photo retouch, comics (for themselves or as a vehicle of a novel's promotion) and 3D. And/or any combination of all that (3D stuff would make all more expensive).

As I say, I will start small and slow, testing the waters carefully. :).

The 3D might have sense to show here, as I don't see it crazy to use very realistic renders instead of photos : I can model whatever and do a render. But it might get expensive. Preferring not to set a fixed price for it, as it can vary a lot per circumstances and details. And the main activity, anyway, is illustration. (have done recently board game covers using solely 3D, though :) )

I preferred not to embed here any graphics, as is not too good for the forum board bandwidth. Also, as I believe for my specific kind of images, is better to put a link than 400x400 images. (it's quite fine with me :) ) :

Some of my portfolio samples

Cheers,

Hi there! I can make book covers, social media ads, and swag (stickers, poster, etc). My prices range from $80 to $400, and that all depends on the project. I mostly work with stock photos, but I do create my own fonts, to cut down on costs (unless you already have a font you'd like to use). I can make physical covers, but you MUST have the total page count and ISBN number ready for me, in order for me to make you a nice, official cover.

You can see more of my work on my Behance and/or my site. The best way to get in touch is by email: [email protected]. Send me a message, and we'll work together to make your dream cover!
