You've put all your effort and care into writing your book, making sure it is properly edited by someone who is trained in the art of copy editing, put your marketing plan together, and are ready to put it all together with a nice layout and cover. This is not where you should cut corners. Investing in a quality book layout and cover design by a professional cover designer and layout artist is paramount to the quality of your end result. However, you don't have to pay an arm and a leg to acheive that look with DocUmeant Designs custom book cover design services.

However, to make surer you know the difference between a designer's book cover and a professional book cover designer's cover we offer the following example.
