Ready-made book cover design Frequently Asked Questions

Will you sell the ready-made cover design I purchase to someone else?

Absolutely not. Ready-made covers are offered as a one-time purchase only.

Once you purchase a ready-made cover design, that particular design is no longer available and is then removed from our inventory.

Why do the ready-made covers already have titles and author's names?

Rather than use “Your Title Here” we like to use a made up title to see how a real title will fit into the overall cover design.

All ready-made cover designs are original designs and have never been used before.

What is the turnaround time for a ready-made cover after purchase?

Once you make your purchase, and after you send us your book information (title, tagline, back cover information, etc.) we will begin work on your cover customization on the next business day.

Purchases made on Saturday or Sunday will not be processed until the following Monday. The turnaround time is as follows:

  • Ebook cover option – 2 business days
  • PRINT COMBO option – 3 to 5 business days
  • THE WORKS option – 3 to 5 business days

We also offer a rush service which is available for an additional fee.

I found a ready-made cover design in the Elegant Book Design inventory, but I want to change the design slightly–is this possible?

Yes, we can make design changes, but there will be an additional charge based on how much time is needed and/or how complex the change will be. PhotoShop work can be very time consuming.

After you purchase your ready-made book cover design, we can discuss with you what will be needed and what the cost will be for the changes.

What if I don't see a ready-made cover design that I like?

We offer a custom book cover design service that starts at $199. With a custom designed cover, we will first have an in-depth consultation then we will create multiple cover design concepts for you to choose from.

Go to the Custom Book Covers page for more information.

Do you offer a rush service? I need my cover artwork right away.

Yes. We offer a rush service, which is an additional fee.

  • Ebook service is normally 1 to 2 business days. Rush service fee would apply for a turnaround of less than 24 hours.
  • PRINT COMBO service is normally 3 to 5 business days. Rush service fee would apply for a turnaround of less than 3 days. Same day service is subject to availability and time of purchase.
  • THE WORKS service is normally 3 to 5 business days. Rush service fee would apply for a turnaround of less than 3 days. Same day service is subject to availability and time of purchase.

During checkout you may add the rush service fee to your order if needed.

I will be publishing my ebook on several platforms. Can you provide the cover artwork in different sizes?

Yes. After you make your purchase, you will be sent a link to a book information form page where you can indicate what platforms you are using and you may tell us what specific sizes your artwork needs to be.

If you are having your book printed, we will need printing specifications from your printing company.

How do I find out what size my book cover artwork needs to be?

If you tell us what ebook publishing platforms you are using, we can determine the exact size it needs to be.

If you are publishing a print book, you will need to contact your publishing company for exact trim size and printing file specifications.

What is stock photography?

It can be expensive to hire a photographer and a model, then stage a set for a book cover. Stock photography is a reasonably priced alternative. These are images that photographers (and illustrators) create on their own, then sell multiple times, through stock agencies services known as stock agencies such as Shutterstock, Adobe Stock and others.

The advantage is that the rights to use stock photographs and illustrations can be purchased for a fraction of the cost of hiring a photographer or illustration and purchasing exclusive rights to the image. The disadvantage is that stock images may be purchased and used by different graphic designers.

When Elegant Book Design purchases stock photography, we are purchasing the right to use the image with some restrictions. For example, a standard license for ebook use is limited to under 250,000 sales by authors and print books are limited to under 500,000.

For books that exceed those numbers in sales, an extended rights fee is charged by the stock agency, which is $79.00 for Shutterstock and Adobe Stock.

Elegant Book Design includes the standard license image purchase in all the cover design services in this website, and the author is responsible for the extended license fee.

Are ready-made cover designs just for ebooks?

No. If you need a print version of your cover design, we can add a spine and back cover.

We offer three different ready-made cover design packages so you can choose exactly what artwork you need.

Do I own the rights to the ready-made cover design after it is purchased?

Yes. You will have full rights to use the cover artwork as you would like.
