Cover design

People shouldn't
judge a book by its cover,
but they do...

About the design process

At BEAUTeBOOK, we are a team of professional graphic designers; your project will be assigned to one of us, and you will get to interact personally with that responsible designer, by email, Skype (BEAUTeBOOK) or phone.

Sometimes, authors come to us with an idea already in mind; although we will listen to that, we encourage you to summarize your book plot highlighting its key components, and to leave in our hands the cover concept and design resources. You will be impressed by the results!

We think communication is key, so you are welcome to ask as many questions as you need, and to send us all directions as detailed as you can. Also, if you are busy and wish to delegate the whole process to us, that's OK too, we will adapt to whatever works best for you.

About the ordering process

These are the steps to place an order:

  1. Fill out the order form for the selected product here.
  2. You will get an email with:
    • The estimate of how long it will take for you to get the first drafts (usually a couple of days)
    • A PayPal payment request for the deposit (50% of the price).
  3. Once deposit payment is confirmed, we get to work.
  4. We send you at least two drafts for you to choose, and we continue working upon your feedback and interacting with you until you are 100% satisfied with the final result.
  5. We send you the PayPal invoice for you to complete the payment, and the full size final cover afterwards.

If you have a non-standard request, like a very specific character creation for your cover, or a format layout for a book with more than 500 pages and/or more than 10 images, then please request a Special Quote.

...and these are your options:

eBook Cover Design

Choose this option if you are only publishing a digital edition for your book.

The design service fee is $275 and it consists on:

  • At least two drafts, based on the information provided at the Order Form.
  • Changes, until you're 100% happy!
  • A final JPEG (1563px X 2500px) at 72dpi, ready to upload (optimal measures for Kindle Covers).
  • A money-back guarantee: If you feel we are not meeting your expectations at anytime of the process, you may cancel your order and get your deposit back.

Print Cover Design

Choose this option if you are publishing a print edition for your book. The service fee is $375 and the conditions are the same as with the eBook Cover Design, but in addition to the eBook Cover, you get:

  • A custom spine and back-cover
  • A final PDF in 300 dpi resolution ready to upload in the selected platform and size (for example, CreateSpace 6x9")

In this case you get two different files, one for eBook and the second for print.

We work with all major publishing platforms, like CreateSpace, Lighting Source, iUniverse, etc.

A word about copyright

Usually we work with our own images, but if your book requires a very specific scene, we may get them from image databases like Shutterstock. In such cases, there might be a restriction to publish/sell up to 250,000 copies in some cases (this restriction depends on our image provider's user agreements; usually you can waive it for an additional fee of $150 later on).

Also very often we work with photographs that are free for commercial use as long as we credit the owner; in these cases you will be required to add a line in your Copyright section crediting the Original Photograph.
