An additional charge may ensue if your backlist is over 25 books due to the amount of time it takes to create all the pages.
Please be aware that Winterheart Design is not responsible for creating/writing your site’s content. Each client is responsible for writing the text to be placed on their site. We are also not responsible for searching out all the badges you want to display for various organizations, downloading all your book covers and seeking out your book buy links. This is all material you need to provide for placement on your site.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
All pre-made covers and logos are sold on a first come, first serve basis. Each design is only sold once.
Payment in full is due in advance of the work unless you have made other arrangements with me in writing via email. Payment can be made via PayPal to email@example.com. If you need an invoice for tax purposes please me know via email and provide your PayPal address. If you prefer to pay via Venmo or Facebook please let me know. In addition, I do have PayPal buttons set up on the sidebar at rottnroll.com.
A reasonable number of updates/changes to custom covers is allowed. This can range from 3 to 8. Excessive changes beyond this will incur an additional charge because of the time involved. You deserve to be paid for your time working and so do I.
Information required for Print Wrap: Blurb and any other back matter (ie website, social media, etc.) If you do not provide the Amazon template, you must provide the book size (5×8, 6×9, etc), the number of print formatted pages (which is not the same as the number of ebook pages), and the page color (white or cream.)
When payment and order is complete you will receive:
Covers: a High Resolution copy (1800×2700 at 300 dpi), and high res medium sized copy (432×648), and a promo sized copy (200×300) all in JPG format unless requested otherwise in advance. These will be watermark free.
Print wrap: One JPG 1000 pixels wide at 300 dpi and one Amazon ready PDF in RGB without layers. If a CMYK version of the print cover is needed please let us know at the time of the order.
All cover art is licensed exclusively to the author for the life of that version of the book. The designer owns the copyright to the image, not the author. As such, the author MUST include on their copyright page the following information: “Cover art © [year] by Winterheart Design, winterheart.com.”
The author/client does not have the right to alter the completed cover art in any way shape or form. By purchasing from us, the author/client agrees to not alter the completed artwork.
Winterheart Design does not at any time provide Photoshop PSD files with layers to the author/client or any other entity requesting it on behalf of the author. These files are owned wholly by Winterheart Design.
All images used in the creation of graphics, covers, logos and websites are purchased from reputable stock image houses and creative element marketplaces. All fonts are licensed for commercial use. If the author/client wishes to use an image or font other than what we provide, they may be asked to pay for the purchase of the image or the font license or if they are providing the font or image, they will be asked to provide proof of purchase for the image or font.
Your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. The only information requested of you is what is needed for communication and billing purposes aside from the information needed to complete the work. Your information will never be given or sold to any third party.
If you have questions about pricing, services, or anything else, please feel free to email me at lex at lexvalentine dot com or use the contact form. I’m happy to discuss your project with you and appreciate the opportunity!
