Pricing

Pricing is based on the amount of time it takes to find your image(s), format to size, edit and tweak, select a font and apply any special effects. I format your eBook cover based on the industry size standard. If you need a different size, please let me know the exact dimensions you need. I don’t charge a difference for non-standard book sizes.

Pre-made eBook: $75

Any of my sample image covers are available for $75, for e-books only. Finished dimensions are 2400 x 1600 pixels at high resolution and turnaround is 24 hours or less for the initial proof. No image changes made on pre-made covers except where expressly noted. Font substitutions or other text-related changes are fine.


Custom eBook: $125

Finished dimensions are 2400 x 1600 pixels at high resolution. Price includes a Skype or messenger consultation, where we’ll cooperatively select your images. If your cover needs to merge three or more images, add $25 per added image to the cost. Turnaround generally 24-48 hours for the initial proof.


Custom Print: $250

As with custom eBook covers, print includes a Skype or messenger consultation and selection of your images. Also as with eBook, if you want to merge three or more images, add $25 per added image to the cost. For print, it’s imperative that I have the EXACT print dimensions, including the number of finished pages. If you’ll be publishing through any other outlet than CreateSpace, please check and provide that company’s spine calculation formula. Please also let me know if you’re using something other than white paper for a CreateSpace book, as non-white pages are calculated differently.

 

You will need to provide your summary text, plus any author or other details you want included on the back cover. Please be aware that approximately 20% of the back page is reserved for the ISBN and bar code. Turnaround generally 3 to 5 days, depending on complexity, for initial proof.


Website Banners $100

This assumes a combination of at least two images plus text. Includes a Skype or messenger consultation and selection of your images. For additional images add $25 per image. Turnaround generally the same as a custom eBook cover. Banners are assumed to be no larger than 1250px x 450px; for full page design or larger custom sizes, please request a special quote, including your desired dimensions.

Combination package: Custom eBook and Print cover: $325

Finished dimensions for eBook are 2400 x 1600 pixels at high resolution. Price includes a Skype or messenger consultation, where we’ll cooperatively select your images. If your cover needs to merge three or more images, add $25 per added image to the cost. The combination package assumes the SAME image set(s) used for both print and eBook. If the books will have different cover images altogether, they will need to be purchased separately.

 

For print, it’s imperative that I have the exact print dimensions, including the number of finished pages. If you’ll be publishing through any other outlet than CreateSpace, please check and provide that company’s spine calculation formula. I will also need to know if you will be publishing using anything other than the standard white paper to publish. Ivory pages are a different thickness and impact how your spine is calculated.
