Service Details for External Authors

Don't judge a book by it's cover.

If only the old saying were true! The reality is that for many readers browsing to buy in either traditional or online bookstores, they will only be attracted to picking up or clicking on a book, based on the strength of the book cover, and what it conveys to them visually, and emotionally.

The importance of a creative, professionally-crafted book cover design cannot be underestimated, and unfortunately good books with poor covers will often be dismissed by readers as substandard without much second thought.

Schiel & Denver can provide expert book designers for your project, with competitive rates - a standard design fee of $799 for perfect bound (soft cover) and $899 for dust jackets. Our designers focus in considerable detail on the quality of artwork produced, and will tailor your bookcover to your exact vision. If you want to see a portfolio of some of our books, please visit our bookstore!

Book Cover Services includes:

  • Free ISBN bar code placed on backcover (your book's price can be added as an option)

  • You retain complete copyright to the cover

  • Two passes of artwork for your author corrections

  • Digital cover thumbnails for web marketing, eBook promotion and press media pack etc

  • Professional print-ready PDF files of Book cover artwork or pre press files including front, back, and spine delivered ready-to-print as digital files.

  • All fonts will be embedded, and in CMYK format compatible with most printers.

What else do I need to know?

  1. Please ensure the total page count of your book is finalized before ordering the service, as changes in page count affect spine width and thus require extensive design alterations to revise or correct.

  2. Schiel & Denver can create your cover to any specification. Please make sure you have your book's exact dimensions available in both inches and millimetres, so your designer can calculate print bleeds and markings for you.
