Custom Covers - We Offer Custom Covers at No Charge

Below is detailed information to assist you in creating a cover. The most important issue is to use high quality photographs and/or graphics at 300 resolution. No images downloaded from the internet can be used. Our Graphic Arts Staff is happy to help you with your artwork. There is an additional artwork fee if we create the cover for you. However, we will try our best to guide you and to answer all questions to help you avoid paying any additional fees.
