Ordering Custom Covers:
Cat's Pyjamas creates custom designs with the art of photo-manipulation. All designs use fully licensed stock photos from Depositphotos and/or licensed renders from a variety of indie artists.
For Ebooks and paperbacks you will receive 2-3 design proposals for you to choose from. After making your selection, a final price will be quoted. Prices depend on the complexity of the design, and the number of images used.
A 50% deposit is due after the proposal selection and licenses for the images are purchased by the Cat's Pyjamas. Up to three revisions are included in the price. The remaining balance is due after final proof copies are sent. On receipt of final payment, paperbacks are sized and files are delivered.
Custom packages start at $100 with a paperback add-on of $30. This includes up to 2 blended licensed images and typography. Additional charges are added on per extra image to allow for cost of licensing and extra time needed to work them into the design.
Series designs can be created to give a cohesive and branded look to a series. Covers are priced as for individual cover design, but a discount is provided
when a full series is ordered together.
Audiobook Cover Design:
Using images already used in covers designed by me, 2D front face $50
Using images already used in covers from someone else’s design, $70
Creating new image to fit theme or if no design exists, $80
What Your Design does not include:
Open PSD files: These are not provided due to copyright.
Exclusive stock images: All images used in the design are bought and licensed from Depositphotos.com and as such cannot be obtained exclusively. However, Angela Stevens customizes these images in many ways. She does guarantee that she will only sell a cover design once, and she makes it a policy of only using a stock image once in her designs.
Need updates to your design in the future?
Future alterations can be provided at my pro-rata hourly rate, $30.

Please email Angela Stevens at with a brief description of your project. She will send you a customer questionnaire and a free Zoom consultation can take place prior to the design if you require it.
