Book cover type
Other color requirements
blue, black, white and yellow
Would prefer book is blue color like our website. Ive also found that white background pops tend to blend into the amazon listings page and dont look good. if you use in an image in the cover please don't make it corny. attached is a book cover we like.
What to avoid
we want this to be clean and professional as if it was being published by a larger publishing company. Your expected cover size is 12.552x9.250. Your cover file should be a PDF sized sized with bleed and no surrounding white space or crop marks. If the file is sized at dimensions other than those expected, Print Previewer will note the discrepancy and prevent approval. To correct this issue, check the following: Set the width and height of your file to full cover size according to our File Size Calculator. There should be no white space around the edges of the cover file or it may fail for bleed. All images or backgrounds meant to reach all the way to the edge of the page, must extend 0.125” (3.2 mm) beyond the trim line. If it does not, it will be rejected. Images or graphics that shouldn’t reach all the way to the edge of the page must fit within the safe zone, which is represented by the dashed red lines in Previewer. All text must fit within the safe zone. For more information about common cover size errors, please see the Cover and spine text section.

aksaramantra did a fine job from the beginning of the contest to the end. The cover was clean, crisp, and attractive. We asked for a lot of changes and refinements, and they were made quickly without complaint. I would be delighted to work with aksaramantra on another cover.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
