Original cover design means the designer will use pre-existing photos/graphics, supplied by the designer or the author, and will put those together with the verbiage that will appear on the cover, all to the printer’s specs. Please contact Angela if you’d like a referral to a freelance illustrator/artist. Cover design does not include manual, original illustrations or artwork, or photo manipulation/touch-up. The cover designer’s fees including incorporating the artwork into the cover design, and formatting/designing the cover (back, spine, front, images, text, barcode, etc.) all to the printer’s specs.
Original paperback cover design is $250 if purchased separately from a package but only $200 if part of a publishing package. Original cover design is included in all packages except D.I.Y.
