CUSTOM EBOOK COVER DESIGN | KINDLE BOOK COVERS
If the book cover design can be created with photography, we can create it!
Custom ebook design is a great place to start whether your book is complete or you want the book cover design for writing inspiration. Ebooks are the front cover of your book and are the first impression your readers will get of your story. Books are an emotional and personal investment for writers and a professional Kindle book cover should reflect the passion that went into the story.
We also offer NEW, custom Kindle Vella square designs. Usually created without titles or author names, this new kindle format caters to serial covers under a new platform introduced by Amazon. This allows authors to release just a few chapters at a time. These files are saved as JPG, 1600x1600 pixels in size.
We know that ebook cover designs will be viewed on small devices and as thumbnails. Attention needs to be paid to font sizes, coloring, and contrasts when designing for small sizes. There also needs to be consideration for the ebook design on printed swag, banners, print design, and graphics. Low resolution photography or graphics will not work for printing and should not be used on an ebook cover design. Even if printed books are not planned, swag printing usually will be needed at some point.
How to Get Started on Your Custom Ebook Design!
Our getting started page goes through the process of starting custom book cover design step-by-step. We also offer premade book cover designs as well. Ordering custom ebook cover design is as simple as emailing with your interest and we will reply within 1-2 business days. All of our book cover design work is done on a first come, first served basis. We do not schedule work or reserve time.
Requirements to Start
We will need all of the final text for the ebook cover design including the title and author name. For ebook cover design we do not need formatting finished; in fact, the book does not even need to be written yet! All we need to begin is a brief description and basic design preferences. For non-fiction book cover design including memoirs and self help books we may need significant direction in order to create the book cover design due to the expertise of the subject matter and/or personal nature of the book. We do not need a copy of the book in full or part to begin design.
Custom Ebook File Package
Ebook or Kindle book cover designs are not designed for book printing and do not include bleed or safety margins. If special margins are needed please request this before ordering. Changes based on new layout requests can cause redesign and incur additional fees.
Our files are suitable for publishing on all major online retailers and promotional purposes. One of the biggest places that our book cover designs are used is on Amazon as Kindle book covers. Completed ebook cover design files are provided in flattened, JPG format. All of our designs are created with industry standard book cover dimensions. Ebook covers are designed as high resolution 6x9 inch files (1800 x 2700 pixels). Kindle Vella designs are 1600x1600 pixels in size. If you need a size other than 6x9, please request the custom size prior to ordering, this includes reference book sizing for non-fiction. Many reference books have the book cover dimension of 6.75x9 inches or 2025x2700 pixels. Special size requests made after the design work has started may incur additional fees. Finished files are flattened and are not editable. Editable files are not available for our cover designs.
