We will place your cover on an IngramSpark, Barnes & Noble, or KDP or template, implement any small changes necessary to make sure it fits properly on the template, and create a final PDF/x-1a-2001 cover file for your book. In addition, for Barnes & Noble Press book covers (and very dark IngramSpark covers) we will adjust the cover file to meet their 240% ink saturation limits.* Your final file is guaranteed to meet all submission requirements. Payment is only due when you are certain you are happy with your file.
1) Please be certain your cover is 300 dpi. File types accepted include: .tiff, .jpg, .png, or .pdf format.
2) Generate the original IngramSpark, Barnes & Noble, or KDP template for your book in PDF format.

$35 for Barnes & Noble Press cover file
$ 5 combo price to add an interior book PDF/x-1a:2001 file to your book cover conversion
$20 extra charge if the cover does not fit the template, and custom adjustments must be made.
Payment is via Paypal. You do not need an account; they accept credit cards.
* Please note that applying 240% ink saturation limits to a cover will produce a color change (usually dulled colors). To prevent this from happening, please submit cover files for Barnes & Noble that meet the 240% ink requirements. If this is not possible, please know that we do our very best, using Photoshop adjustments, to keep your image as close to the original colors as possible. We will send you several sample cover covers, with colors adjusted, to choose from, before completing your final file. Satisfaction is guaranteed before payment is due.
We are looking forward to helping you with your project. Please contact us and tell us a little about it:
