How many revisions do I get?
Infinite revisions. I want you to be completely satisfied with your new cover.
What if I do not like your designs?
In this case you will get your money back. But don't worry I never had to give up so far.
What do I get?
1 - A printer-ready, complete cover based on your specifications: front, spine and back. If your book has a dust jacket, I will provide flaps as well.
2 - An eBook version and a 3D mock-up for marketing purposes as bonuses.
What information do you need to begin?
1 - Book title.
2 - Author name.
3 - A short synopsis. And please understand I can't read a whole book or a whole chapter.
4 - Book size: front, spine and back. If you are going to publish your book through a POD service such as Amazon Createspace or Lulu, all I need is the book size and the page count. I will have the site generate a template for me.
I still do not have a back cover synopsis and maybe I will change the title. Are you willing to add it for me later?
Yes. Small edits are included.
Is it safe to pay you?
Absolutely. I accept payments only through Paypal, the safest online payment method on earth.
I do not have a Paypal account. How can I pay you?
You can pay me via credit card. Just let me know and I will send you the details.
Your covers are gorgeous and I fear you are too expensive. May I ask you a quote?
Of course! My rates are very reasonable, because I am a one-man-company and I believe independent authors and small publishing houses must have the chance to get professional covers on a low budget.
Are you experienced?
I have over 20 years of experience in graphic design.
How do you design your covers?
Most of my covers are photomanipulations, pictures made using lots of different photos seamlessly merged to create a new image.
Do I have to pay for stock images you use?
Absolutely not! The price you pay includes all stock photos I purchase for your cover. No extra or hidden fees. If you want a specific or very expensive photo, we can discuss it.
After my cover is done I need extra designs to promote my book. Can you help me?
Yes. I can help you with any additional graphics you need: business cards, bookmarks, posters, Facebook covers, postcards, flyers, banners, logos... just ask.
Can I contact people who have used your services before?
Yes. With their permission I can put you in touch with my clients.
I already own a photo I want to use on my cover. Can you do this?
Yes. I can incorporate anything into your cover's design: photos, drawings, sketches, paintings.
Do you want to be credited?
It's up to you. I usually add this line to the back cover: "cover design by ivanzanchetta.com" but I can remove it if you want. Obviously I would appreciate it if you credit me on your copyright's page.
Where are you based?
I'm based in Padua, Italy, a nice town near Venice. I work with clients from all over the world from USA to UK, from Australia to Germany. No matter where you are from, I promise I'll design the cover you have always dreamed of.
