Compare Custom Covers vs. Standard Covers

We'll be the first to admit, our free standard covers are nothing to sneeze at. In fact, in many cases, they look like the "custom covers" you would get anywhere else. But take a look at the three comparisons below (the custom cover is the left version in each comparison) and we think you'll agree, nothing holds a candle to the professional custom cover designs available to you by publishing your book with Outskirts Press. Did you know your designer will design TWO different designs to select from at no additional charge?

Here's some more great news: If your professional cover designer creates two covers that are both so good that you just can't decide which to use, we even offer an option where you can solicit the opinion of over 35,000 readers and writers about which version they like the most (and many will provide you with additional comments, feedback, suggestions, and encouragement). Talk about a great way to build buzz for your book in advance AND get some invaluable feedback about one of the most important elements of your publication - your professionally designed custom cover.

Compare the Competition and Save with Outskirts Press

We've analyzed the competition so you don't have to. Here are prices from four of our largest competitors for their professional custom cover design services, although Competitor C and Competitor X do not offer two different custom cover design concepts to choose from. We do. Just another reason Outskirts Press is rated #1.

*Competitor X offers single-concept custom cover design at its "Custom Package" level ($1,899). The difference between that package cost and our Ultimate ($1,799) is the approximate cost of their custom cover service (about the same as ours, although with Outskirts Press you receive two concepts rather than one).

A word from two authors about our custom cover design services

You know, all Indie Publishers have different packages and different price groups. For me and Outskirts Press though, it has always boiled down to the people. People who make it happen and make your book look great when someone holds it in their hands or reads the Ebook on a screen - Front Cover Design, Back Cover Copy, and Interior Formatting. You guys always, always, nail it. And that... enables me to win.

I was very impressed with the speed in which my first book was published (just 8-1/2 weeks from submission to publication). The additional charge for expedited service was a sound investment. Even more amazing was the quality of the books themselves and the imaginative custom cover design! I will definitely choose Outskirts Press to publish my second book this spring.
