Cover made by Alhexz Design Studio
MAKE IT A HOBBY TO READ
What is CMYK and will it make a difference to my design?
—THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DESIGNS SEEN ONT THE SCREEN AND ON PAPER(PRINTED) because screen colours cannot be reproduce by printer colours. Many book publishers and printers will produce your book using the CMYK colour model (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black), this is where four plates with those colours are used to print your book.
In addition, some printers will also require that any design uses a maximum of 240% ink levels (not applies in createspace), this can also shift the colour further.
Can I pay by credit card or in any other way, instead of using PayPal for the extra fees?
—No, I only accept payment via Paypal.
How can I credit you for the service?
—-Crediting is not required but greatly appreciated. You can include in your ebook ”Cover design by Alhexz Design Studio” OR ”https://thebookcoverdesigner.com/designers/alhexz-design-studio/”
IMPORTANT REMINDERS BEFORE BUYING: (Licensing, Rules and Usage)
Please be informed, some stock images are mine, others come from stock sites and others are free(CCO). Those license stock images comes with “STANDARD LICENSE” which means there are limitations that the client must be aware of. Free(CC0) comes from pixabay.com’s amazing artist. Most of the license stock image comes in depositphotos.com (you can read this Depositphotos License Comparison ) if you want to use the cover in any other way ( to print on mugs or T-shirts,etc).
ALSO MEANS, if you exceed total sales of 500,000 books (solo or series), it becomes necessary for the AUTHOR to purchase an ”EXTENDED LICENSE” for each photo filling a major role on the cover (approx. $89 per photo). But I usually have one stock photo included in my design and the rest are my works or public domain.
Please also note, extended license may be purchase by me (no charge to author) if and only if the same design use in the series and be done by me.Example: You want the design for the next 5 books, changing only the color of the design to fit the series. Or same design (with the stock image) with some minor modifications.
OR you want to modify the design yourself, yes, it is possible. You can ask the PSD file.
There are 2 options to choose:
—You can request PSD file where TEXT layers are editable, but, ART layers are flattened (non-editable). The price is $99.
—You can request PSD file where both TEXT and ART layers are editable. The price is $199.
FOR ASKING PSD FILES YOU ALSO AGREE THAT ALL IMAGE AND FONT THAT UNDER A LICENSE MUST BE PURCHASE BY YOU.
If you have any questions, please message me at email@example.com. I will reply in your email within 24 hrs.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE: As of the moment I don’t make custom cover due to my schedule.
When buying Ebook and Print covers:
1. What size are the Ebook and Print covers?
—-The ebook covers will be emailed to you as 1600 pixels wide by 2560 pixels high, RGB, JPG in 300 dpi. These are the specifications for Kindle, but there’s shouldn’t have any problem using it in another ebook service.
—-The standard size of my print covers is 6×9“. But still, it will depend on your chosen size though.
—-If you have a completed book and you know the number of pages, you can create the template via createspace or ingramspark. Where you can choose your desired size, paper color etc. Then you can send me the template and I can start for the full wraps for paperbacks.
—-Or I can do it for you as long as I have the exact number of pages of your book.(the final numbers of pages) and what color of paper you will use. But I only do cover for Createspace. You may send me template for ingramspark/lightning source since they will be asking many details about the book that the author only knows.

2. How much it cost for making print book covers?
—-The price you will see in the site is for EBOOK ONLY.
—-FULL WRAP COVER, including spine and back are available for an extra charge which amounting of $80 (unless I change it. Max is $70, minimun $20 which is depends). Why $80? Because the design for spine and back cover will or either be stretch or near same design of the front cover.
(You can see the full wraps of the cover in the product description. And if there’s no sample image of the full cover, it means, the cover only available for ebook.)
—-But if you don’t want to be billed $80 you can choose the PLAIN COLOR for spine and back, charge will be at $20.
