What size do you send the file?
1563 pixels wide by 2500 pixels high. If you need any other sized please get in touch with me at email@example.com.
What format do you send the file?
KDP likes JPEG - so that's what I send.
Is the cover I buy unique?
Of course I only sell a cover once. Once it sold I mark it sold and then removed it from the site.
Can I have less or more text on the cover?
Yes I will fit the design to whatever the amount of text you want on there. You might not have a tagline on the example but you really want on on there - just tell me and I'll add it.
I want to change the design (different fonts, colours, different elements on there), can you help?
Yes, I can makes changes to the covers: font are easily changed, say if you like the font from a different cover jsut tell me the number of that cover and I'll swap it out, font colours are easily changed, if it's a background colour that might be a little harder - so might incure a charge. If you are unsure always email before hand.
Can I use one cover for multiple books in a series with different titles?
More than that we can make them look distinctly different as well. Some examples here. So what would you charge for this extra work? Well, say if you find one cover you like and want to use it for five covers I charge the price for five covers - so you would buy five pack for a single cover and then I make that look different for your different parts of the series.
Can I have my file in a different format / size?
Of course, just ask - I'm a helpful, friendly chap. This does not include the Photoshop - simply because I don't design in Photoshop.
I've approved my design but months later I want to change my pen name or title, what can you do?
For initial changes obviously I don't charge extra, but if you came back to be me weeks or months later after you've approved the design I charge $10 per cover to makes text changes. Alternatively, you can make the changes yourself. If you want the file to play with yourself - I can send through the origination file - which is in Xara Design Pro X (you can download a trail version here) and I'll send you the names of the fonts I've used that you will have to go buy them, and you can play to your heart's content. I do now work in Photoshop so can't supply PSDs.
Are the stock photo images licenced?
Of course - they are indeed. You can sell upto 250,000 books with the image without a problem.
Do I have to pay for the stock image as well?
Nope, that's included in the price.
Do you sell the cover more than once?
No, once you buy a cover it's taken off my site and not sold to anyone else.
What if I want a cover but don't have the title yet?
No problem - go ahead and buy it - I'll keep it on file for you. Then no one else can get it. And just come back to me when you're ready with your title.
What if I want a ten pack of covers but can only find eight I like?
Then you will need to buy a 3 pack and a 5 pack. If you buy a 5 or 10 pack it represents that you know the 5 or 10 covers that you want and you will need to supply the cover numbers within 48 hours so I can allocate them to you.
Do you have a mailing list I can join so I don't have to keep checking back?
Indeed I do. If you want to be added to it - just give me a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org. Everytime I put new covers on the site I will email you all.
Do you turn covers around within 24 hours even on weekends and holidays?
No, as I do have a life but sometimes I will do if I get a spare hour or so. I try my best to keep people happy.
Can you do a CreateSpace wrap-around print design from a cover I buy?
Of course - the price for this is $65.
