How are pricing and taxes handled for different regions?

United States and Other Non-EU/Non-UK Countries: For our customers in the United States, which is our primary market, and other countries outside the EU and UK, the price you see is the price you pay. There are no additional taxes charged by us.

European Union (EU) Members: For customers within the European Union, the prices displayed are inclusive of Value Added Tax (VAT). This means that the price you see is the final price, with VAT clearly detailed and included.

United Kingdom (UK): Similarly, for our customers in the UK, the prices include all applicable taxes, including VAT. The total amount visible at checkout is what you pay with no hidden fees.

We aim to provide transparent and straightforward pricing across all regions, ensuring that you can easily understand and anticipate the total cost of your purchase without any surprises. If you have any further questions about how pricing works or how taxes are handled, please reach out to us for more information.

What information do I need to provide in the design brief form?

The form asks for details about your book, such as genre, themes, synopsis, visual preferences, and any specific ideas or requirements you have for your cover. You can see the form on the Book Cover Services Page

How long does it take to receive the initial concept designs?

Typically, it takes about 5 working days to receive the initial concepts, depending on the complexity and specifics of the request.

Can I request a specific style or theme for my book cover?

Absolutely! We encourage you to share any specific styles, themes, or ideas you have in mind during the concept phase.

What if I'm not satisfied with the initial concepts?

Before committing, you can view our previous work on our website to ensure our design style aligns with your vision. Providing detailed information about your book and vision in the initial form greatly contributes to the success of the design. With our 100% Happy Guarantee, you only pay once you have approved the final design. This risk-free approach allows you to evaluate the initial concepts without any financial commitment, ensuring you are completely satisfied before making any payment.

How many revisions are included in my package?

Our comprehensive questionnaire captures all the essential details a designer needs, which is why most clients are happy with the first or second design concept. But we offer unlimited revisions to ensure you are completely satisfied with your book cover. Once you are happy with the overall design, you can make small adjustments as we progress. For more details, see our step-by-step guide. This approach guarantees that you have the freedom to perfect your book cover without any additional costs, balancing cost-efficiency with the flexibility to refine your design to your heart’s content.

What file formats will I receive for my book cover?

You will receive your cover in various file formats suitable for e-books, print, and marketing purposes, including JPG, PNG, and PDF.

Can I use my own images or illustrations for the cover design?

Yes, you can provide your own images or illustrations for the cover, as long as you have the rights to use them.

Do you offer pre-designed 'Stock' covers? How does that work?

Yes, we offer a selection of pre-designed 'Stock' covers that cater to a variety of genres and styles. See stock covers on the Premade Covers page. These covers are ready-made designs where we can swiftly adjust the author name, title, and any other specific text to suit your book. Choosing a 'Stock' cover is an excellent and cost-effective option for authors looking for high-quality designs with a quicker turnaround time. This option simplifies the design process while still providing a professional and visually appealing book cover.

How do you create the images and illustrations for the book covers?

We create stunning cover art using AI-generated imagery, primarily utilizing tools like Midjourney and Adobe Firefly. This innovative approach allows us to produce amazing, high-quality cover art very quickly, significantly reducing the turnaround time. Additionally, leveraging AI technology enables us to offer these exceptional designs at a very affordable price point. This method ensures that each cover is not only visually captivating but also unique and tailored to your book's theme and style.

What is your policy on copyright and image usage?

Alongside client-provided images, we primarily utilize AI-generated imagery from advanced platforms such as MidJourney and Adobe Firefly. Just like traditional stock photos, where purchasing an image generally grants non-exclusive usage rights, the same applies to the AI-generated images we use. While you obtain the right to use these images as part of your book cover, the copyright of the AI-generated imagery itself remains with the AI providers.

We diligently adhere to the usage policies of these platforms to ensure that every book cover we design is not only unique but also fully compliant with legal standards. This approach allows us to provide high-quality, affordable, and legally sound book cover designs that effectively meet your publishing needs without the need for exclusive image rights, which can significantly increase costs. Our goal is to deliver a visually captivating book cover that aligns perfectly with your vision while ensuring that all usage rights are clear and respected.

Who owns the rights to the final cover design?

Upon completion and full payment, the rights to the final cover design are transferred to you. You have full usage rights for publishing and marketing purposes.

What about sales tax and VAT?

There is no sales tax added to prices in the US. For the EU and UK, the prices include VAT. The final prices are as you see on the website.
