Front Cover Design Guidelines

Graphic options to create your own book cover

  • You may submit your own ideas and graphics with the submission of your manuscript.

  • You may submit complete cover designs that you will like our design team to use in designing your book cover

  • You may choose a graphic or design from our library of stock photos (These do not include regular designs)

Our Special Design Service can create a professional book cover design for you at an additional cost. Our design service ensures that your book stands out in the market as a book that you can be proud of.

When we design your book cover, we will include the book title, author name(s) and any marketing copy designs, and all graphics that are needed.

Please ensure that cover graphics that you submit to us meet the following guidelines:

  • TIFF (.tif) file format

  • CMYK colorspace

  • 300-dpi resolution

  • Match the dimension of the final trim size, plus an 1/8" bleed on the top, right and bottom sides (i.e., a cover for a 6" x 9" book would need to be submitted at 6.125" x 9.25")

  • Copyright permission from the creator (artist, photographer, etc.) to use the work on your book cover

  • Sample graphics and other illustrations created by you that will only be used as ideas or guidelines for the design team can be submitted in any format.
