Publicious Basic Cover Samples


For the want of a better word we call our affordable book cover designs basic, but as you can see by the samples below, this is far from basic Book Design.

Below are samples of the kind of designs you can expect when purchasing packages 1,2,3,4 or 5. These will include: front, spine and back cover (text content supplied by client), choice of font styles for title and headers, up to two stock images and an ISBN barcode. Stock images can be blended and layered to achieve eye-catching and original designs, plus you'll have the peace of mind that all the legal copyright licenses and regulations will be in place. Clients are also free to supply as many images/illustrations of their own to be included at no extra cost. All the necessary bleeds and crops will be applied and a high resolution, print ready PDF/X file will be created (front ebook cover only for Package 5).

Read Our Testimonials

I am very grateful and honoured to have found Publicious. As a first time author, there was SO MUCH to learn, figure out and understand. I know that without the help and support of the Publicious team, I would not have achieved my dream. I contacted a few places last year regarding publishing, but I connected only with Andy, and that's why I chose to engage his services. It turned out to be an exceptional choice, pat myself on the back for that :-)

I asked media personality Ray Weeks about 'Publico'. He thought I was talking about 'Publicious' and said he had heard good reports. That's how I came to meet Andy McDermott. The spectacular cover design was a Publicious masterpiece, my sketches had been redrawn to illustration quality and my photographs inserted. Blitz was launched in good time for the February 19th 2012 Bombing of Darwin Day celebrations.
