Cover Design Pricing

We offer two cover design options, custom and assisted. Which option is for you? The information below will help with that decision. Also check our cover design portfolio for additional info.

I would like a CUSTOM Cover Design because:

  • Gorham Printing has the creative ideas and skills to make a cover design that will compete with those from the big publishers
  • Having a beautifully designed cover is important whether my books are to be sold or simply for my own use.
  • Gorham Printing will take care of the book-industry standards so I don't have to

I would like Gorham Printing to ASSIST with my cover layout because:

  • I already know what I want on my cover, I just need someone to do it
  • I have all of the "pieces," but not the necessary software or time to design my cover
  • I need a designer's help with the technical details
