The Benefits of Using an eBook Cover Template

The Benefits of Using an eBook Cover Template

Designing the cover of your book all by yourself may seem like a mission impossible, especially if you don’t consider yourself a designer. There are a lot of freelance designers who specialize in book covers that may work for you, but if you feel you are the type of person who wants to take matters into your own hands then designing the cover of your eBook yourself may be the smartest thing to do.

After all there are so many cover eBook templates to help you through the process and make things easier for you. So if you are amateur or even a professional, here’s why you should use a cover eBook template when designing an eBook cover.

1. The right dimensions

Cover templates come with preset dimensions. So when your publisher gives you the dimensions you need to make your cover in, you can just find and download the right cover eBook template for you and off you go. You won’t have to worry if your design undergoes some changes if you mix up the dimensions.

Once you are sure you have the right template you can go on and design. It’s always more fun to focus on the creative part rather than the technical. And there are different sizes you can choose from depending on the site you plan to sell your eBook on. You can even download different sizes and make the same cover to fit for different publishers.

2. Pre-set elements

Some templates may even have pre-set elements this way it will give you an idea of what you need to have on your eBook cover. They are just like instructions for designing. They guide you through the process. But even if you have pre-set elements you still have complete freedom to choose each and every one.

You can place your own image and choose your own font, choose size and add elements of your own as well. The options are limitless really, but the process is made all the more simple. There is no doubt that using a cover eBook template is really the easiest choice when designing a cover.

3. You can choose your design software

Cover eBook templates can come in different formats for different design software. This gives you the freedom to choose which software you are more comfortable with and which software can help you achieve the best results. Rather than using a design site, with a template you are free to use a software that you are already familiar with.

It is really easy, you just find the right template for you, download it, open it in the desired software and start creating. Sometimes you will find that the same format can be opened with more than just one software, this will give you the option to switch programs when working.

Best eBook Covers we Saw in 2016

Best eBook Covers we Saw in 2016

There are all kinds of ebook covers that you can find on the Internet, regarding the fact that ebooks have become extremely popular in the past year. We have prepared a small but intriguing list of the best ebook covers that impressed us in the past year.

The first one was submitted by Damon Freeman, an ebook cover for Keith Soares’ latest book.

This is truly a dramatic, mystic and a very exciting cover. It even won the award for best cover in 2016 in the non-fiction category. There is a backlit guy on the cover, you cannot really see his face, and that is the one thing that gives this cover a different edge.

The second cover on our list was submitted by Teddi Black, for the book Coffee cherry Cocoa Pod.

It is a very vintage-looking cover with a brilliant and subtle choice of layout, details and simple yet effective fonts. There is a small illustration that makes it a bit more eclectic, but all in all, this cover is truly the winner for us. A vintage, nostalgic cover and a very tempting non-fictional subject to read about.

The third cover on our list was submitter by the writer, Aidan Read. Read’s new book, Spectrum, is a sci-fi book with thriller motives. The cover is perfect for the topic of the book. It is simple, but it has depth in it. The eye is beautiful and the spectrum of colors that is used for the cover gives the cover an ethereal touch.

Clarissa Yeo is the designer of the Inspired by Frost cover. This is a bold cover, with strong yet effective colors on it. It has some intensity to it, and it is quite different from the other covers we have come across.

Alisa Kester’s cover for her new novel is perfectly themed for the novel’s story. This is novel based on time traveling and ghost hunting, so the whole concept of the cover goes perfectly with the story that you are just about to read. The colors are subtle and the cover is simple, but it will definitely impress anyone who has a thing for gothic art. We have one thing to add, though – the font used for the author’s name looks a bit unprofessional and kind of takes away from the entire concept of the picture.

Amelia Smith designed the cover for her latest book. It kind of reminds us of the “A song of ice and fire” series by George R. R. Martin, so we are not fully impressed by it. The concept is good, though, but there is lack in color. The colors are too blank, so the picture seems easily forgettable.

Andrew Buckley’s cover seems like the perfect modern cover for a fiction novel in the 21st century. The colors are super good, and the font is perfect. All in all – it looks like a professional cover that will definitely make you feel like reading the story.
