Custom Series Covers

Conceptualized for cohesive branding across your series

You’ve spent hours, days, weeks, months, maybe even years building your story world, developing your characters, tweaking your plot and ensuring the story keeps readers coming back for more. Don’t settle for a cover solution that doesn’t continue where you left off. Our custom covers designed for series are conceptualized from the spine up with the boxed set in mind.  

You will be given the option to put a $50 nonrefundable deposit down toward the purchase of your custom covers.  Once your deposit is complete we will reach out to you to start the brief process. 

For a set of covers to qualify for the series saver discounts and bundled extras an author must commission three covers, in the same series, or more.

If you are certain you plan to publish a series, purchase the series saver now and we will reserve design time for your future covers.  You must pay in full to receive your first cover.  All bundled extras will be delivered upon payment in full and approval of the final cover. 

In short, buy today and get covers as you finish your books. 

This depends.

If you’ve finished at least three books in your series and commission covers for three or more books in your series, you’ll qualify for the series saver discount and bundled extras.  

For additional covers beyond what is currently published, or in need of a cover, we will work with you to determine the volume needed and a discount will be extended for additional single covers matching your series branding/look and feel.

You will not qualify for additional bonus items/bundled extras. 

No.  Each cover is sold only once.  

Absolutely! We can use your supplied ISBN and barcode, or generate a barcode with your ISBN.  We will ensure it is placed according to your printer’s specifications. 

This depends on our current workload.  For custom covers please allow up to four (4) weeks for delivery.  For premade cover adjustments please allow up to a week for delivery.  These estimates are based on our standard workload.  During times of high demand these timelines may be extended without notice.  Please accept our sincere apologies if your cover is taking longer than expected. 

If you’re concerned about our current turnaround time please contact us for a current timeline.  Additionally, you may purchase our In a Hurry Package to move your cover to the front of the line. 

We do not provide illustration services at this time.  However, we do offer custom hand lettered typography. 

Generally speaking, yes.  We require proof of license to work with known stock images.  Additionally, we require the appropriate releases to work with custom photography.  This may include, but is not limited to: model release, photograph release, copyright transfer or release, and etc. 

If you’ve hired an illustrator for your cover and are looking for typography only check out our typography package. 

For eBook covers we provide a high-resolution JPEG.  For print covers we provide high-resolution JPEG and PDF files. 

We typically use a Createspace 5×8 (inch) cover template set up for a 250 page spine width.  This is a template and may need to be adjusted based on the needs of your book.  Some premade designs may not support ultra thin spines.  Additionally, we’re happy to adjust elements based on your chosen printer’s specifications, for example the placement and dimension of the ISBN barcode. 

We are aware of Amazon’s intention to move away from Createspace.  We are currently able to support templates from KDP Print, Ingram Spark, and others.

For custom covers we will design your full print wrap to your book’s specifications.  We understand that you may purchase a cover in advance. In that case, we will use a standard template based on your print size (i.e. 5×8, 6×9, etc) and wait to design the spine until your final page count is determined. 

Currently none of our stock image providers require copyright attribution. It is your responsibility upon transfer of the stock image license to periodically check the license terms of the stock images in your cover and update your book’s/books’ copyright page as per the attribution required by the stock image provider.

We would appreciate, but do not require, the following attribution: Cover design by ABC Designs
