Design absolutely matters.

It’s said that design can make or break a title. It’s not a joke.

Process

  • 2-4 design drafts submitted to clients after project begins, following schedule established at outset.
  • Unlimited revisions. You read that correctly; it’s impossible to limit revisions to one or two rounds. We’ll work together to get it perfect.
  • Proofs delivered to client in PDF form; printed proofs available at an extra charge.
  • Final files burned to CD, DVD, or flash drive and sent to client. (Files usually uploaded to printer from here.)

Rates

  • Covers start at $500. That’s a 6×9 trade paperback, with all imagery and a clear design direction supplied.
  • Covers plus start at $750. Like above, but with assistance in finding the best image and/or design direction.
  • Jackets start at $750. That’s a 6×9 hardcover jacket, with all imagery and a clear design direction supplied.
  • Jackets plus start at $1000. Like above, but with assistance in finding the best image and/or design direction.
  • Interior design depends entirely on the project; rates range from $500 for novels to $5000+ for long and/or complicated projects.
    (A World Without Reality, pictured above, was in this latter category — see more.)
  • All projects include press-ready output files optimized for your printer.

Optional Extras

  • Custom photography. Take your project to the next level with custom photography for cover, jacket or interior. Prices vary.
  • Marketing materials. Need print ads or online banners? Available for a low, per-item fee.
  • Author or publisher branding. Especially useful for self-publishers, this allows you to present professionally. Available items include logos, brochures, advertisements, and much more. Prices vary.
