Book Cover Design Only

Basic Book Cover Design (self-publishers): £99.00
Premium Book Cover Design (self-publishers): £250.00

Book Cover Design (commercial publishers): £350.00

What we require from the author :

  • The book size (height & width of page)
  • Barcode or ISBN (we can generate the barcode from an ISBN)
  • Back page blurb and any other information required for the back and flaps.
  • The spine width if available. You can get this from your printer, but only if you know the final number of pages of your book – otherwise, this can be arranged later.
  • Any images you wish to use on the cover. These should be high enough publication quality.

See samples of our book cover design here (it may take a short time for the page to load the high resolution images).


Book Typesetting Only (interior page layout/design)

The following are prices per page (not the manuscript page, but the typeset pages of the actual finished book), and are based on books that have 90 pages or more.

To estimate how many pages your manuscript might come to, it’s recommended you divide the total word count by 300 words – this will give you an estimate final page count (depending of course on the style of your book and final page design).​

£1.00 a page for text only books, with standard heading structure, inclusive of 10 image inserts.

£2.00 a page for books between 11-50 photographs or other illustrations, or with complex typographical hierarchy.

£2.50 a page for books with text and more than 50 photographs or other illustrations, or with complex typographical hierarchy.

£10.00 a page, or more, for advanced colour page composition and designs.

Final pricing will be evaluated once we have seen the manuscript – for simple projects, we may be able to reduce the rate. We highly recommend your manuscript is edited before being typeset.


Where a higher level of bespoke design work is required on a book, contact us for a custom quote.

See samples of our typesetting here (it may take a short time for the page to load the high resolution images).

The following is required with manuscripts sent for typesetting:

We only work from a final carefully edited manuscript, which is preferably a Word document

  • The book format/size (dimensions)
  • The title and subtitle
  • Endorsements
  • Author name
