Graphic Design is what separates your book from everyone else’s on the market, whether it is on the internet or in a traditional bookstore. By the use of innovative technology, digital photography, or illustration, your cover will stand out and represent your book well. Art Director Mark Costa has spent years studying the art of book design and has over twelve years of graphic design experience. Whether you desire a modern, cutting edge design or a classic look, we can create a book design you will be proud of.
Skilled photography or illustration greatly enhances the content of your book. We work with selected artists and photographers to produce work specifically for you. We do not use clipart and can not reproduce copyrighted artwork without the artist’s written permission.
Our process involves three stages: initial concepts are discussed, rough prototypes developed, and, with your approval, a final mock-up is sent to the printer. We keep you in the loop at all times. Use of the internet greatly speeds this decision-making process.
We can produce both hardback and softback (paperback) books. While hardback books are prestigious, they are generally four to five times more expensive to produce than softbacks. By using modern printing facilities, books can now be produced one at a time, as the order is placed. This ensures a new book for every order, and eliminates the cost and worry of long-term book storage. Books are then shipped directly from the printer to the customer or bookstore, freeing you to concentrate on your writing.
You can also order as many books as you need for signings and other events, at a substantial discount over list price.
