ORDERING A BOOK COVER

Third-Party Image Licenses:

Client agrees to abide to the terms of any license agreement for any images purchased by FARAH EVERS DESIGNS through a third-party image provider for use in Client’s Book Cover Design. Information on the third-party provider and their license terms will be provided to Client by FARAH EVERS DESIGNS before image is purchased. Client may not extract the image from the Book Cover Design to use for other purposes. In order to use the image for other purposes Client will need to purchase their own additional license for the image directly from the third-party image provider. If Client cancels the Book Cover Design Service the image license shall be kept by FARAH EVERS DESIGNS and Client will have no rights to use image in any manner and Client agrees to destroy any mockups or other completed work sent to Client by FARAH EVERS DESIGNS that contains the purchased image in any form.

Responsibilities:

Client is fully responsible for proofing the Book Cover Design provided by the FARAH EVERS DESIGNS and it is strongly suggested that Client requests a proof from the printer before publishing or ordering any copies of the book. At no time will FARAH EVERS DESIGNS be held financially or legally responsible for any problems, costs, fees or expenses incurred by Client as a result of using the Book Cover Design provided by FARAH EVERS DESIGNS. FARAH EVERS DESIGNS is not responsible for any usage of fonts, stock images, or illustrations provided or chosen by the client. After the client has accepted a design, liability is transferred accordingly. While FARAH EVERS DESIGNS will do their best to fix any problems that may arise with the Book Cover Design they cannot be held responsible for any costs, fees or expenses due to any problems with the Book Cover Design even if the problem was a result of an error by FARAH EVERS DESIGNS. For example, if Client submits the Book Cover Design created by FARAH EVERS DESIGNS to a printer, has 50 copies of the book printed then realizes that FARAH EVERS DESIGNS made a mistake on the cover; FARAH EVERS DESIGNS will not be responsible for any cost incurred by Client to print or reprint those books or any other fees or expenses resulting due to error.


Ebooks

* Industry standards apply to all covers, whether fiction or non fiction. I will not change font size or location, unless I deem it acceptable from a professional standpoint. If you would like full and "wrongful" control over your cover, I am not the right designer for you. I take my craft very seriously, therefore, please understand that it is my thorough research as well my marketing tricks that drive my designs.

* First revision is always free, after that every change you would like made to the cover will cost you an extra $5.

* Image or full concept swaps charges are between $15-$25 per revision.

* If you accept an ebook cover, you may NOT change, alter, edit, or turn it into a PRINT cover without FED's express consent, as well as the standard issued FED stamp. You should never print an ebook cover. Print has its own color and quality conversions. If you don't know what the conversions are, always consult with a professional.

* If you refuse a finished design cover, you may NOT use it or parts of it in any way. Should you accept a design, you may NOT alter it unless with FED's express permissions. You pay for exclusive rights license to use the design as it is delivered, and the original copyright is well protected as my intellectual property.

Disclaimer: Farah Evers Designs provides all the art work, stock photographs, and every license used on the cover. Farah Evers Designs does not hold responsibility for any materials submitted by a client, or enforced by the client.

 

Print Books

For a print cover, you will need to find the correct print house in advance. Companies like CreateSpace will supply you with the proper measurements for your book cover by filling some of their forms. Otherwise, if you're working with an independent printer, you need to ask them for the PDF that meets the thickness/size of your intended book cover. Please, try to include your barcode and ISBN in your printer issued PDF, if the printer won't be inserting it themselves.
If you are printing via CreateSpace, please follow this link to download the required PDF. This one will not include the actual barcode. CreateSpace will offer to insert the barcode as a final step.

Your blurb will not be read/edited for you. It is your responsibility to make sure the blurb you enter does not have any mistakes. The blurb will be copy/pasted straight from the form on to your book cover. You may request paragraph break revisions, however, extra charges will incur should you request text or grammatical revisions.

* Industry standards apply to all covers, whether fiction or non fiction. I will not change font size or location, unless I deem it acceptable from a professional standpoint. If you would like full and "wrongful" control over your cover, I am not the right designer for you. I take my craft very seriously, therefore, please understand that it is my thorough research as well my marketing tricks that drive my designs.

*All Print material, including covers, posters, flyers, or anything other prtinables will automatically be delivered with a Farah Evers Designs rectangular stamp on the back or front. It's standard. The stamp is small and unobtrusive. 

* You may NOT use a design or parts of it in any way, whether you've accepted or refused a cover. Should you accept a design, you pay for exclusive rights license to use the design, and the original copyright is well protected as my intellectual property.

* First revision is always free, after that every change you would like made to the cover will cost you an extra $5.


Do not, please, I repeat, do NOT send me attachments such as pictues, fonts, or diagrams, unless it's for showing a concept. I only utilize my own resources. Just "TELL" me whatever it is you think I must know to create your cover if the points mentioned below don't cover that.

Disclaimer: Farah Evers Designs provides all the art work, stock photographs, and every license used on the cover. Farah Evers Designs does not hold responsibility for any materials submitted by a client, or enforced by the client.

 

Other Printables:

* Client may use book covers on T-shirts and other Swag items, so long as the design is intact, provided the swag is non profit.

* Symbols and custom art that is sold seperately with a cover design requires a separate paid license for independent distribution. (for example, custom fleurons, characters... etc)

Should the client sell above 10,000 copies of any design, a new license agreement ensues, and FARAH EVERS DESIGNS will have the right to enforce a new royalty fee upon contract.
