Work With 2D Fruit

The following is a list of a la carte products that 2D Fruit offers. Please read each description carefully. These are custom products that are created through a carefully designed process. 2D Fruit is not a service company where you can have undivided access to a graphic designer with unlimited revisions. We have carefully defined requirements and a process to complete each offering. You will receive files that will help you move your book through the publishing process. You, the author, are still responsible for the progress of final published work.


Ebook - Front Cover Only Design

The front cover is all that is required when producing an ebook, like for Kindle. Typical Kindle covers measure 2813px x 4500px. If you require something else, please specify. A good ebook cover design is easy to read as a thumbnail. The tone and concept of the book should be implied in the design.

If you want a photo incorporated, this must be provided. If you provide stock photos, they must be free of watermarks and you must send evidence that you have obtained the license to use the image. You may provide photos that you took or commissioned yourself.

Please send links or screen captures to at least three similar, existing covers as a reference for what you like.

The text on the cover of an ebook should be limited to:

  • Title
  • Subtitle, if needed
  • Author's name, as you want it displayed. Please be clear how you want capitalization and if you want initial abbreviations or additional details like pedigree (jr, esq, iii, etc.) or educational achievements.

You will receive a mockup that roughs in all the design elements and details for a pre-approval. The final cleaned-up art can have one revision within the product price. Additional revisions are $50 each.

View this option on Fiverr. The range of options cost $300-500.

Print Book Cover (includes eBook cover file)

A print book cover is more complicated than an ebook cover. The book's internal content layout must be complete so that the final page count and book dimensions are established.

If you want a photo incorporated, this must be provided. If you provide stock photos, they must be free of watermarks and you must send evidence that you have obtained the license to use the image. You may provide photos that you took or commissioned yourself.

ISBN and Barcode: $80

If you only plan to sell your book as an Amazon Kindle book, you can begin without an ISBN. To sell in print and on multiple bookstore websites, you will need to register your book and get an ISBN number.

Print book layout: $5 per page.

You provide the digital text version of your manuscript. 2D Fruit will create the internal layout of the book. This is what determines the number of pages in your book.

If you have photos, illustrations, diagrams, maps or other graphical elements, you should include them at this stage. They can be added into the layout for no additional cost. If you need graphic support to create these items, we can help produce them. Contact us for an estimate.
