Project Started

Once all materials have been received Design by Kage will start designing your cover. During the week Design by Kage will be in communication if any questions arise, or if there are any files to review.

Our design process

We know cover design can be daunting, especially if this is your first time. To try and simplify the process for authors we have a detailed timeline of what you can expect when you book a cover design service through Design by Kage. We are here to make this an exciting and rewarding experience for you, and if there is anything we can do to make this process easier please get in contact with us.


Once contact has been made Design by Kage will work with you to confirm availability and agree upon a deadline for the project.


For work to commence Design by Kage require all materials be delivered via email one week prior to the agreed deadline (unless discussed prior). This could include the book cover submission form, client provided images, and/or information for the promotional materials.


Either prior to, or upon reaching the agreed upon deadline, Design by Kage will send files for you to review. At this time, you will have a chance to look over the cover designs and provide your feedback.


If there are revisions required, they will be made within 24-48 hours of receiving the feedback from you. This process will be repeated until the final design is approved.


Once the files have been approved, final payment is due.


Once payment has been received, Design by Kage will send the official final files.
