YOUR CUSTOM BOOK COVER DESIGN 

For custom book cover design please contact us to provide us with: your name, author/editor(s) names, your address, email, and your contact information. Please also provide us with the the book's size, title/subtitle, and/or tagline if any, the number of pages (this helps with calculating the spine size) and your copyright-free images. Please visit this link to be sure you understand the difference between copyright-free and royalty-free, as we will assume no usage risk for the images you provide. If you're planning to use a specific idea that's your own or need us to explore cover ideas, please let us know when you contact us. We will also need images of the author(s) with their bio(s), and any other text that you will need on the back cover. Most independent authors and book publishers use either 5.5ʺ × 8.5ʺ or 6ʺ × 9ʺ for novels or nonfiction books. These are good, reliable trim sizes that present a good reading experience for both novels and non-fiction.
