Book Cover Design

The Paper House’s award-winning designers have extensive experience designing books that are eye-catching, interesting, and attractive. The design process begins with the cover design and then progresses to the page design and composition. ​

Custom-Made Cover Design

A great book cover consists of a clear title and subtitle, strong composition, and an intriguing focal point. After a market analysis of your genre is done by The Paper House, we will create an attention grabbing cover that conveys the genre and brands you as the author. We accommodate the indie author regardless of their budget or design needs. You own 100% creative rights to your cover as well.

Illustrated Cover

The illustrated cover option is a fully customized design created by one of our in-house artists. An illustrated cover design makes your cover unique, very detailed, and essentially a piece of art that. Illustrated covers are typically best for children’s books, sci-fi, and fantasy genres. Although, we can create illustrated covers for any genre.

Custom-Made Cover Designs

We create visually stunning custom cover designs ready to be judged by potential readers. 

Outside The Book

Our authors have the option of publishing and printing their book in paperback, hardcover, and ebook formats once the layout design is created. Both layout design and formatting are worked on together as part of our publishing packages. Your book will be available for sale through our global distribution network to online retailers, bookstores, and libraries. Contact us to learn more about our distribution partners.
