We do print covers for $79, but discounted by $20 when we do the ebook cover too.
This particular cover illustrates an issue with which designers sometimes have to contend. Do we occasionally sacrifice good design for the client’s wishes? The title and author name are too small to read, but that’s what he wanted. We showed him a proof with larger text, but he didn’t like it. So… we did this, got paid and sent him the cover. Everybody’s happy, right?

“Thanks so much Cal. Your are a real champion and very talented designer. I love Proof 9 a lot. Keep it 100%” – Allen Davies
A recent ebook cover design for Rebecca Bauer available on Amazon. At Caligraphics we design ebook covers for Smashwords and Amazon. We also do print covers for CreateSpace, Lulu and other publishers.
There’s no charge for proofs at Caligraphics, and we’ll put them up on a private web page for your consideration. We’ll make as many changes as you need to get a cover you like. These are currently out on approval.
I get a lot of photos from https://stock.adobe.com/ They’re usually pretty reliable, with a lot of good quality photos to choose from. I download free comps to work with and when the client approves the design – typically a book cover – I’ll get the hi-rez version and do the final. But this latest one was quite at variance with the comp that I showed the client, and I had to run curves on it, reduce the contrast and blur it to get it to look like the proof.
“Mr. Cal Sharp has asked me to write a short note recommending his company, Caligraphics, and it is my pleasure to do so. I chose the ebook company Smashwords to publish and distribute my new ebook, and they recommended a number of cover artist and document formatters to contact and work with. After reviewing each service provider in the list, Cal’s cover art impressed me the most. And since he offered both cover design and manuscript formatting to Smashwords specs, it was an easy decision. The cover art proof process and selection was quick and the final design was liked by all. The manuscript formatting was perfect and it uploaded flawlessly to Smashwords. I highly recommend Cal and his company Caligraphics for your next ebook cover and formatting.”

Lions are gorgeous, don’t you think? A cover we did for an audible book soon to be published. We also did the ebook cover.
