Book Cover Design

You’ve done it. After sculpting the story over a series of often painful drafts and redrafts, your book is complete. But, like all of us, this story has been birthed entirely naked. You need to wrap it up in something before you show it to the world.

Why You Need A Great Book Cover

While your Grandmother might’ve suggested that you avoid judging books by their covers, the fact is that everyone does. Your cover needs to make an impact. It needs to pique the interest of a potential reader to the degree that they pick it up or click on it. It’s your book’s first impression, and one that is pivotal to the novel’s success.

Choosing the Right Designer

The experienced book cover design team at Damonza boast over 35 years of combined experience, and have designed thousands of covers for a variety of authors – from self-published debuts to New York Times bestsellers. We’d like to think that we bring as much passion to the design of your book’s cover as you brought to writing it. And we have the knowledge and expertise to know exactly what will speak to your audience, and get your book flying off the shelves.

By choosing Damonza, you’ll receive at least two book cover design drafts within 10 business days of placing your order with our standard package, unless you select the optional “rush service”, in which case we’ll fire up the really expensive computers and have your first drafts ready within 7 days. Alternatively, our premium service comes with four first drafts within 7 business days, or our budget package provides one first draft within two weeks.

For all our packages, once any required changes are completed and we’ve received your final approval, we’ll provide you with the print-ready files or high-resolution JPEG for upload, as well as a rendered 3D version for marketing. Our book cover designers have access to over 100 million royalty-free images, so you’ll never have to worry about image licensing or royalty costs. And if you go with our premium package or rights-managed image add-on, there are even more image possibilities available.

Our Guarantee

At Damonza we’re so confident that you’ll love the initial draft designs (or at least have something to move forward with – the “love” will come later) that we offer a 120% deposit-back guarantee. If you’re not completely satisfied with your cover, not only will we refund you your deposit, we’ll pay you an extra 20% of the cover design deposit just for giving us the opportunity!

All packages include the complete transfer of the rights to the author, subject to the stock library’s (e.g. Shutterstock) standard image licensing terms. Simply complete the order form with the specifics regarding your book and provide some other information to help with the design. After completing the briefing or order forms you will be directed to pay a 50% deposit via credit card, powered by Stripe.
