Book Cover Design Services 

Inspire your readers through the use of your images, our partnership with Getty Images, or through a custom illustrated cover designed by one of our in-house illustrators. Palmetto Publishing handles all the necessary details as well. Included in our book design services are the back cover text crafted expertly via our marketing team, the ISBN, and the barcode. 

Here’s an overview of the process.

Palmetto Publishing will consult with you to grasp your requirements and understand your story to reflect on the book cover.

2. Analyze your genre

We research typography, layouts, and color themes common to your genre to ensure that your book cover design will fit the market.

3. Provide you with the first look

You get the first concept in just ten business days.

4. Implement your revisions

Upon your review, we can begin rounds of revisions until your revisions are just as you like.
