Q: How much is *insert name of* service?
A: You can see my pricing here: LINK
Q: Why are premade covers cheaper than custom covers?
A: Custom covers are made to your specifications, and they require additional work. Premade covers are ideas I have floating around, and they require minimal changes upon purchase.
Q: Will you work with *insert name* photography company for a custom photo shoot?
Q: On the premades it says there is web stock and exclusive stock. What’s the difference?
A: Web stock is purchased from a stock site like Deposit Photos or Shutterstock. This means that while the design is unique to SOTS there is a possibility someone else might use the same image. Exclusive stock is purchased directly from a photographer I know, and that photo will never be used on anything other than that cover.
Q: How do I credit you, the photographer, etc?
A: Easy peasy. On your copyright page, “Cover Design by Sprinkles On Top Studios LLC. Photo courtesy of…” and just insert the stock site / photographer /model (if known).
Q: What is your typical turnaround time on book covers?
A: It’s typically 1-2 weeks depending on the complexity of the cover and specifications.
Q: What is your typical turnaround time on swag design?
A: It’s typically under a week depending on the volume of work.
Q: We already started a book cover design; however, I no longer want to continue. Do you offer refunds?
A: There is a 50% non-refundable retainer to begin work on any project. If work has begun on a project, the retainer is non-refundable.
Q: Can I purchase a premade cover and edit it later?
A: Yes, that’s not a problem at all!
