Choose Ready-Set-Go Covers—scroll down for catalog—or Custom Designed.
Thinking you can do-it-yourself? Here’s why you need a professional design:
- Yes, you can design your book cover but unless you’re a graphic artist, no one recommends it. (If you don’t believe us, read this article: I Made a Lousy Book Cover Once by Steve Saus.)
- The best book in the world can be left collecting dust if the cover doesn’t measure up. (What could possibly go wrong with a DIY cover? Check this out: Lousy Book Covers.)
- Covers do matter, from the quality of the art to the words—even font choices and colors. If readers are turned off by the cover, why would they look inside? Poor quality (or outright ugly) on the outside, says poor quality on the inside.
- Just because you love that sketch from ninth-grade art class doesn’t mean it makes a good cover. Really. It doesn’t. Nor does your child’s drawing or the digital pseudo-human in leather you just made online.
