Digital only covers are included in the initial price. These are supplied in various resolutions suitable for use in your ebook and for uploading to any online services.
If you are looking to get hard copies of your book printed, then select the PDF option. As well as the digital copy of your cover, we'll also provide a print-ready copy for printing. Simply let us know which service you'll be using, and the number of pages in your book, and we'll put together a wrap-around cover that fits just right.
To make sure our pre-made ebook covers are affordable for everyone we offer them on an exclusive or non-exclusive basis.
If you are simply looking for a cover for your book, at the best possible price, then maybe a non-exclusive cover is the choice for you.
We limit sales of each cover to five different books. These could range from novels that you are self-publishing for family and friends to part of a series you're offering for sale online. With the versatility of our pre-mades it's unlikely you'll share shelf-space with another in the same genre.
If you want to make sure that no one else will have the same cover as you then opt for an Exclusive cover. As well as the exclusivity, you'll also receive a few extras.
Yes you can. Simply go through the process of buying it on our site. We’ll email you to find out about your book and when you think you’ll be ready with all the necessary details to put together your great ebook cover.
You can change the title, subtitle, and author name.
In most cases we believe we’ve chosen the best possible typeface for the design, but if you have a specific font in mind we might also be able to change it if you tell us specifically what you require and we have the appropriate licenses.
We will also tweak the author name to suit or if you have specific branding.
No. For that you will need to exclusively license the photography which is incredibly expensive, or hire your own photographer. Instead, we use stock and open source imagery to create your cover which will also be available to other authors. Most bespoke covers we create are composites, made of different images to create one great overall cover, meaning the finished product will be unique anyway.
In some instances, yes. In order to give everyone the opportunity to have a great looking front cover for their book, we keep our prices low by using stock and open source photography. Sometimes a photographer will require a credit in order to use their work. This can be achieved with a simple attribution paragraph on your copyright page, edition notice, or colophon.
If you can’t find something from our pre-made ebook cover library, a bespoke cover might be for you. You simply give us a brief for your book, and some guidelines on what you think you might like and we will put together a cover especially for you.
We don’t produce a number of covers. Instead, we carefully discuss what you are looking for and coupled with your book brief will produce the cover that we believe will be best. This can then be tweaked and styled to suit.
Unfortunately not. We do not supply or sell the original files as this would break various licensing agreements for imagery and typefaces as we can’t supply these individually for use in a template.
Novels and fictional books are generally easier due to their simple format. Non-fiction books can involve extra imagery, sidebars, quotes, and other extra formatting not seen in novels.
It’s recommended that you get in contact before choosing ‘text-book’ so that we can be sure it’s the right choice for you.
We supply your book in both .ePub and .Mobi formats which are usable by most ebook devices, and will allow you to upload your book to all eBook retailers including Amazon and iBooks.
You tell us! Various on-demand printing companies such as Clearspace and Smashwords have a selection of preset sizes. Tell us what dimensions you’d like and we’ll format your book to suit, taking into account margin and gutter sizes, and any headers footers and page numbers.
Absolutely. Just click on BOOKS and download one of our ‘Classics’. These classic books have been specifically chosen to show off what Jelzoo can do for you.
An ISBN is recommended but not required for any ebook you publish through most online stores. An ISBN uniquely identifies the book and its current edition, and helps you to ensure that you are marketing the right book.
An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an ebook, a paperback, and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN.
An ISBN will be required for reporting your book’s sales to industry reporting agencies and charting organisations.
We will be listed as the publisher on record although assignment of an ISBN has no implications for rights ownership.
Yes, if you already have one.
Remember, each edition or version of your work will need its own ISBN, so as long as your ISBN matches the work to be published let us know the ISBN number and we'll use it in your book and generate the barcode if necessary.
Yes, of course. We will build the site on our own development servers, then once everything is finalised and signed off we can either provide you the necessary details or move it across ourselves.
No. In our various offerings we are only supplying a print-ready file that you can send to the printer of your own choice. We do not print anything ourselves, we only provide the design.
