Book Cover Design (starting at $399)

A great book cover is one of your best sales tools, instantly conveying the key thoughts, messages, and images that sum up your book. On those crowded book shelves, it’s essential for you to stand out from everyone else. A beautiful book cover created by the BookBaby Design Studio will ensure you make a professional impression.

  • Basic Cover Design focuses on one central image. This graphic will be designed to both grab the reader’s attention and convey the subject of the book.
  • Deluxe Cover Design offers more complex imagery than our Basic Design option by combining graphic elements, textures, and photo blending to create a scene evocative of your book’s content.

A great book cover design is your best sales tool. A professionally designed cover will instantly (and attractively) convey the essence of what your book is about.

How BookBaby Cover Design Works

Using our online order interface, it’s easy to create a project quote for your book. Simply select your book’s trim size, cover style, book binding style, cover finish, print type, paper stock, as well as your design preferences in the add-ons section.

After you select the design options that are right for you and save your quote, you will be asked to complete a short design questionnaire. This will give you the opportunity to share your vision for your book cover. You can request that our designers find images for you, or you can upload images of your own for us to work with.

BookBaby designers will combine your input with their own design expertise to create a custom designed book cover that you’ll be proud to show off.

“Your book cover is the first thing readers see, making it your most important selling tool. And with more and more self-published titles lining up on bookshelves every year, grabbing attention can be a challenge. But that’s why we don’t use templates. Ever. Your book cover is custom-designed to professionally present your book’s themes and who you are as an author.

All of our designers have years of experience turning a book’s ideas into a compelling showcase that stops readers in their tracks. And your book is guaranteed to get the same treatment right here from our Philadelphia area headquarters."
