How the process works

1. Once you’ve decided which cover package you’d like, or if you need help deciding, click the green quote button to submit your enquiry and we’ll be in touch to confirm your project quote and start date.

2. Once a quote and start date are confirmed, you’ll receive a project form to complete and your project invoice. You have the option to make payment via credit card, PayPal or bank transfer(AU only) with this invoice. All payments for a single cover design service are required upfront for cover design packages.

3. We’ll then discuss with you any ideas you may have. This is a great time to provide us with any examples of covers you particularly like, which will give us a starting point. If you don’t have any initial ideas, that’s no problem because our designers have created many professional designs and know exactly what makes an effective cover.

4. Your cover designer will create variations of your book cover design and email drafts to you for review. You can select which variation you like and provide feedback to your designer. This is a collaborative process: you work with your designer to fine-tune your cover design.

5. Within 5 to 7 business days (normal time) or 7 to 10 days (during peak time) you will receive a first-round draft PDF of your cover designs for review.

6. After final revisions are made, your final high-resolution print cover design will be completed to meet your printer’s specifications, whether this is Createspace, Lightning Source, Lulu, or an offset printer. For eBook covers you’ll receive an optimised file of your front cover.

7. You’ll then receive your bonuses that are included in your package.

Book cover design services FAQs

Q. What type of payment do you accept?

A. All payments for cover design packages are required upfront via secure PayPal, which accepts all major credit cards. Don’t worry; you don’t need a PayPal account to pay.

Q. How long does a book cover design take?

A. It takes between 5-7 business days to receive your first cover design drafts for review, or 7-10 business days during peak times. Then if you are quick reviewing your drafts and provide prompt feedback, your cover design can be completely finalised just 2 or 3 days later.

Q. Do you accept deposits?

A. Our clients agree that we have the best value book cover design packages available, but to keep our prices low, all payments for standalone book cover design projects are required upfront.

Q. Are there any privacy or non-disclosure agreements to sign?

A. No documents to sign. Though, during the order process you will be required to confirm you have read the book cover design terms and conditions page before finalising your order.

Q. Do you do custom cover illustrations or paintings?

A. Yes. We can chat with you about any ideas. Then an artist will be assigned to your cover design project. This is only available with the premium cover package, due to the time required.

Q. What information do I need before ordering?

A. Before completing the order form make sure you have your details ready such as; book size, ISBN, author name, website URL, book description, genre, word count and other details you have available.

Q. Can you create a publishing imprint logo design?

A. Yes certainly. Publishing imprint logos are simple in design as they’re only seen as a very small graphic on the book spine. Logos are best in simple B&W so they don’t look noisy and print well on all cover designs. Be sure to let us know with a comment on the order form.

Q. Do I add a credit for Book Cover Cafe on my book’s copyright page?

A. Yes, please do, that would be most appreciated. Simply add this line: ‘Cover Design by’.
