Frequently Asked Questions

Does this mean my entire cover will be designed?

No. The Personalised Back Cover is for authors who want the personalisation of a portrait or other artwork, but do not need an entire cover design. If you do need your entire cover designed, you should review the Exclusive Cover Design option.

What if I want to digitally submit my own artwork for the Personalised Back Cover?

For the best results, we recommend submitting an image that is at least 300 dpi.
