How It Works
You will complete an online Design Profile where you’ll be guided to provide your cover design preferences that best reflect your book’s genre. A professional designer will create a cover based on your Design Profile, and you’ll be sent a digital cover proof through your CreateSpace account. Here’s how the process works:
- Complete your online Design Profile
- Upload the image you want featured on your book cover or we’ll choose one of the many photos available in our stock photo catalog based on your input.
- Select, or allow the designer to choose, font options for your book title, author name and back cover text.
- Review your cover design, created by our experienced book cover designer, and provide any feedback. Your custom cover will include a single image, a custom layout and background colors, and your font choice.
- Approve your final custom book cover design. We’ll add your new cover to your final book files for publication.
Some design and text changes may incur additional fees; see our Changes Policy for details.
IMPORTANT: We cannot complete your cover until we have your book’s final page count, as the number of pages determines your book’s spine width.
