Book Cover Design

This part of the process can be done at any stage, some even create their cover before they've started writing - it certainly acts as a good incentive to put pen to paper.

Others come to us for their book cover design when everything is written, as if subconsciously binding everything together.

Whatever stage you're at it'll be a pleasure to get your cover created and ready for print.

We proud of our bespoke design service - we don't use templates.

Self published book cover design service UK

Book cover designer UKGetting the right cover for your project is crucial if you want your book to stand out and get attention. I've seen a rise in the 'do it yourself' type applications, but unless you know what you're doing, your book will scream 'self-published' as most authors don't know the elements required on a book jacket.

We offer book cover design at an affordable price and have lots of experience with getting the files ready for various publishing platforms, like KDP, Kindle and Ingram. (These companies require specific PDF output, and if you don't have the right tools and programmes, you'll struggle.)

Take a look at our Recent Projects on the home screen to see the many different types of jackets we have designed. We pride ourselves on making sure you get the right look for your book.

Our book cover design service includes:

  • 20-minute call to discuss your book cover ideas / plans or help with them if you're stuck so we can start creating your unique cover

Here's what past Book Cover Design clients said:

Alexa and the Book Refinery were recommended to me by a writer friend when I needed help with designing a book cover for my dual timeline romantic mystery novel. Alexa took my idea to the next level and her vision transformed a basic concept into a beautiful contemporary E-book cover and book jacket which totally reflected the feel and theme of my story. I was delighted with the result which was way beyond my expectations.

As well as going over and above in the completion and creation of my cover design, Alexa also provided assistance and tips on other aspects of self-publishing which made the whole journey very much smoother.
Alexa truly was the consummate professional, excellent in her communication skills and always responding promptly to my many questions, whilst being patient and efficient at all times.

I was extremely impressed with the her expertise and would totally recommend Alexa and The Book Refinery. I hope to work with her again in the future.
