will go on amazon kindle. Please see their site for pixel count, suggestion for medium-gray border. Hands + Title + Author must be dark enough to show against light background. The hands were from google images "hands reaching for each other" must be in JPG format. Kindle Direct Publishing accepts two types of files for cover images: JPEG, or .jpeg TIFF, or .tif(f) KDP applies additional compression to images when displaying them on its website. For best results, images should be uploaded with minimal compression. Dimensions Requirements for the size of your cover art have an ideal height/width ratio of 1.6, this means: • A minimum of 625 pixels on the shortest side and 1000 pixels on the longest side • For best quality, your image would be 1563 pixels on the shortest side and 2500 pixels on the longest side Color Product images display on the Amazon website using RGB (red, green, blue) color mode. RGB is the color mode native to the web and many color screen displays, as these three colors displayed at varying levels of intensity create over 16 million colors. Use color images whenever possible and relevant. The Kindle reading device has a black and white screen today but Kindle applications for other devices, such as iPhone or PC, take advantage of color fonts and images. Borders for White Cover Art Cover art with white or very light backgrounds can seem to disappear against the white background. Adding a very narrow (3-4 pixel) border in medium gray will define the boundaries of the cover.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Book cover starts at €269.
Full copyright with production-ready files for digital and/or print.
It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
jimteaches collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.

And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
