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: Cover art by Evelyne Paniez, www.secretdartiste.be

 

Stocks used for your projects

The stocks (photographs that we have used to create your book cover) were purchased from either Shutterstock, Gumroad, Depositphotos, fantasybackgroundstore, creative market, DAZ3D, etc ... (all under a basic license). We sometimes use stocks from Deviantart from time to time (purchased or where commercial use is allowed and approval was given by the stock provider to use their resources for commercial use). Please credit these resources in your book if possible.

 

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 the stocks used in our premade covers designs, which means 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 (see below).

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

 

Please buy an extended license yourself. 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 after receiving our written permission to do so.

 

You can read the full terms of use on Shutterstock or on Depositphotos (depending on the stocks we used).

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 really, really 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 and 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 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 based upon my designs (that would be copyright infringement).

  4. You are not allowed to make text changes to the covers yourself.

Questions about this? Please do not hesitate to contact me via email.

Fonts

 

The font on the premade book cover was used for the mock-up. This can be changed to a font to your preference. 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 to buying a premade cover.

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.

Paperback or dust jacket needed?

 

In need for an additional full wrap for your ebook? Please visit our packages here to see the available possibilities. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me via email, chat, ... Please let us know the timeframe you will need this full wrap, so we can inform you about possibilities.

Revisions

2 revisions are included in the price (when buying a trilogy, 2 revisions per book are included). For extra revisions needed, you will have to pay an extra fee of $15 per revision. If you need a text change after approval, this also has a fee of $15.

When will I receive my final book cover?

 

Estimated turnaround for premade ebook covers will be 3 to 5 working days. 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.
