Book Cover Design Services from £300.00

Let’s face it – many people judge a book by its cover. It’s the first thing we see, it’s our initial thoughts and sets the tone almost instantaneously. After all the hard work you have just done, hours upon hours of research and writing, it has now come to the crunch – you need to find a suitable professional book cover designer in the UK to frame its contents.

Regardless of the copy and how well it’s written, a front book cover design needs to grab attention and entice a potential reader amongst all the other books out there. Your book should be given the best chance of succeeding so it needs to grab attention. Let’s face it unfortunately, people DO judge a book by its cover which is why a well-designed thoughtful book cover will increase your chances of achieving higher sales.

A well designed cover telegraphs the content, theme and depicts the author in the correct tone and manner of its content. We have seen countless books fail in their marketing attempts due to an absence of design professionalism and not the author’s aptitude. It’s very simple – If you stand out, you sell more. For this reason, as part of our book cover design services we offer affordable packages even for those on lower budgets. Not just this, we design custom made book covers with unlimited revisions until the point that you are completely satisfied.

At 717 Graphic Design we are one of the leading book cover companies in the UK. We have a small hand picked team of creative custom book cover designers in the UK who have worked with many small and large publishers and authors for over 10 years.

Designing a book cover is an art which not many book cover design companies or publishers can achieve. Any freelance book designer can design artwork but creating one which effectively depicts the tone of the book and the target audience takes skill to master. You have a few critical seconds for someone to look at your book cover, read the title and author and make a decision to consider the book further. This small window of opportunity needs to be seized, and an eye-catching cover design will quickly convince your audience.

Professional book cover designers UK – The Essentials

Every professional book cover designer or ebook cover designers must undergo a fundamental process to achieve the best book cover design. Whether you have a small budget or one which runs into thousands, the design process stays the same. At 717 Graphic Design, we have a five-stage book design process for custom book covers and indeed ebook cover designs too.

See exactly what we do below:

Consultation – We need you to summarise in a single sentence what do you want a potential reader to gather from your book’s cover? You book cover page designer will liaise with you step by step to gather a firm understanding about the topic of the book and the merits which will eventually sell it.

Fonts, Colours, Imagery – There is never one book cover which is the same as another. We will discuss an appropriate font scheme with you. Fonts have a drastic effect on the feel of an artwork. Likewise, colour schemes need to work with the tone of the book and the pictures must emphasise to a reader what they can expect from the text inside. All of the stock images or fonts used will be high quality and copyright-free.

Book Cover Ideas – From this initial discussion we will have decided between ourselves a path route to take the design down. We will present our 1-3 initial book cover ideas and 3d Mock Ups for visualisation.

Revision – Whether it be a pictorial book cover, or a text-based book cover, we will revise accordingly depending upon your feedback – and we will keep modifying until you have the exact book design you have been looking for.

Design Approval – Once you have approved the final design, we’ll deliver the book cover design to you in a PDF format suitable for your printers. If you are looking for an e-book design of the artwork we will provide this to you too.
