Assisted Cover Design

Assisted cover design is ideal for authors who already have an idea of what they want on their covers. Maybe you have all of the "pieces" but not the necessary software or time to design your cover. Or maybe you just want the designer to help with the technical details. Assisted covers feature simple designs, focused around a single element or concept.

Assisted Cover Design is priced at $199.

Custom Cover Design

At this level, we work one-on-one with you to design a completely unique cover from scratch. Gorham Printing's designers utilize their years to experience to craft a design that will compete with books from the large publishing houses. We handle all of the subtle book-industry design standards to deliver a professional, polished cover you're sure to love.

Custom Cover Design is priced at $599.
