If you have any questions not answered here, please let me know – I’ll add on to it. Thank you!
Do you take requests on premades?
I do not. I work in different genres when the inspiration hits. Check back often if you don’t find your genre or a cover that you like. I try to upload new work every week. (usually in ‘genre batches’)
I see a cover I like, but I don’t have funds available- can you save it for me until payday?
My premades are sold on a first-come, first-served basis – this includes my regular clients and my author friends. I don’t think it’s fair otherwise and I don’t believe in putting up my work for ‘bidding’ (which occurs in Facebook groups)
Can I make payment plans on a commissioned cover?
I do not accept payment plans, and I do not predate invoices.
Do you ever re-use any of the stock photos for other projects?
No. Once I use a stock image (including pre-mades) I place the image(s) I use, into that particular project folder.
I just bought a pre-made. Can I have all of the original files in layers?
Premades are already “flattened”. The only layer is a temporary title and author name, which can be adjustment to suit your taste prior to the delivery of your final file.
Can I have just the art as a PSD file, then? And do the typography myself?
Why do I need to agree? Don’t I own the cover and can do whatever I want with it?
You own the right to use the cover for its intended purpose – as a book cover. The stock images are under copyright to the photographer, and my copyright designs of the cover is a derivative work. Unless you pay for, or own the stock images – you never really own the copyrights.
I have photos (or artwork) that I would like to be made into a cover. Can I mail you the images?
I’m sorry, but I cannot. The post office is not always reliable, and I don’t want to be responsible for your work being either lost, or damaged in transit. I do accept scanned images via e-mail, and a release form stating you own the copyrights to the images is a requirement.
Are your premades available for front-facing print?
Yes. All premades are suitable for printing prior to being offered for sale.
