How we work (premade)

There is only 1 cover per buyer.
This means you will receive a unique & mind-blowing book cover, made in my own style of art!

HOW I WORK

Credit

Please give credit to me as an artist, but also to the stock providers. You will receive a list with all stocks used at the end. Please mention the following for giving credit:

Stocks used for your projects

All stocks that are used in our designs were purchased from legitimate and respectable stock sites (all under a basic license). We are proud to say that we do NOT use stocks from Pixabay, Google, Pinterest or any other free websites. 

Stock basic license

As a basic license is purchased for all stocks used in our premade designs, means that you can not sell merchandising of your books, including but not limited to art prints, bookmarks, buttons, calendars, etc... It is possible though if you purchase an extended license yourself (see below).

Want to sell merchandising of your book or are you exceeding the amount of 500.000 printed copies?

You will receive the numbers of the stock, so you can easily find them and can purchase an extended license if needed. If you have bought an extended license, just go ahead and print your merchandises (you don't need our approval).

If you have purchased a premade cover or trilogy from us, please fill in the questionnaire here.

All premade covers in our shop only include the price for an ebook cover. A traditional full wrap can be designed for you for an additional fee. Please see our packages with current pricing here.

WANT A SMALL CHANGE TO A PREMADE?

e.g. eye color change or remove a small item.

  1. Contact us via e-mail prior to buying a premade from our shop or Facebook-group for possibilities.
     

  2. Small changes are possible but depending on the change and complexity, an extra fee might be charged (some changes will be free, depending on what you need, so please contact us prior to buying!). 

WANT A COMPLEX CHANGE?

e.g. a head swap, remove or add certain big elements, etc...

  1. We do not make complex changes to premade covers. Thanks for your understanding. Instead you have the option to choose for a custom made cover here.

WANT A CUSTOM MADE COVER?

When buying a book cover (premade or custom), you are purchasing the right to "use" the artwork, not the copyright on the design itself. The copyright remains my own, unless stated otherwise. If you want to obtain full copyright, please contact me and I am sure we can find an arrangement & price.

You have my full approval to use the design of the ebook cover to make your own marketing materials such as: banners, profile pictures, headers for various social media platforms and your own website, visuals for Instagram/Facebook, etc ... I can help you with this, just let me know ;-)

IMPORTANT

  1. You are not allowed to make changes to the cover design and texts yourself.

  2. You are not allowed to copy/paste pieces from the design and create your own artwork.

  3. You are not allowed to use my designs to make series continuations yourself.

Add-ons

Paperback or dust jacket needed?

 

You need a full wrap for your ebook? Please visit our premade shop here to see the available possibilities for add-ons. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask via email, chat, ... Please let us know the timeframe you will need this full wrap, so we can inform you about possibilities.

Title treatment

Title treatment is included in the price when buying a premade cover or premade trilogy. For extra revisions needed, you will have to pay an extra fee per revision. If you need a text change after approval, this also comes with an extra fee. See my current prices at the booking page.

When will I receive my final book cover?

 

Estimated turnaround for premade ebook covers will be 3 to 5 working days for premades. If you want a full wrap, this can take 5 to 10 working days. If the timeframe is not possible (due to other bookings/ projects), we will inform you in advance.

Fonts used for the mock-up

 

The font on the premade book cover was used for the mock-up. This can be changed to a font to your preference (included in the price if we have the font in our database). Please let us know which type of font you would like to display on your cover. Make sure you chose a font that can be used for commercial purposes!! If we need to purchase a new font, an extra fee will be charged, so please contact us prior!

Blank artwork (flattened without texts)

 

Please be aware that we never give a PSD layered file to our clients. If you want the blank artwork without any texts, you can receive a flattened version for an extra fee (see available packages and add-ons here). You can use this blank artwork under a basic license only for marketing purposes. If you want to use this for merchandising, please first buy an extended license of the stocks used yourself (you will receive a list at the end of the project).

Important:

Purchasing the blank artwork does not mean a transfer of copyright. If you want to obtain full copyright, please contact us and we can find an arrangement & price.

You are welcome at any time to contact me via chat, email or have a look on the FAQ-page. This page is subject to change anytime, so please check this page frequently.
