How it Works: An Outline of the Process

How it Works: PreMade Flowchart Step 1
How it Works: PreMade Flowchart Step 2
How it Works: PreMade Flowchart Step 3

How it Works: PreMade Covers

 Step One: Initial Contact

Search the PreMade Shop
Find & Purchase PreMade
Look for Follow-Up Email(s)

 Step Two: Proofs & Revisions

View the First Proof
Send Feedback
Receive Revision(s)

 Step Three: Finalize the Files

Approve the Design
Receive Final Files
If Print details are still in-progress, we can finalize the files at a later date.

*All Approvals are final and additional costs will be required if changes are made after approval is given. This can involve re-scheduling your art. Please be sure you’re 100% ready to approve when you hit the “approve” button.

**If the back text and/or page count are still pending when Approval is given, this means that there are no further changes to the print layout beyond replacing “filler text” with the final text for the back cover and updating the spine size with the final page count. Please do not expect to receive additional proofs when the final page count and back text are ready. So be sure you are happy with the back and spine layout as well as the front cover art when you submit your approval.

Following this process as closely as possible allows Paper & Sage to offer quality designs at reasonable prices. If significant deviations from the above process are required for your project, please understand that additional cost may be required as well.

...Christa was amazing with responding to my emails. I asked many questions and not once did she make me feel like I was a bother. She made the entire process enjoyable and exciting. She did everything I asked and had [the premade cover] for me in under three days. All of this took away a ton of stress and I plan to work with her again.

I’ve been looking into cover designers for a bit, and I made sure I felt my project would be in the right hands before I agreed to anything and I felt Christa was the right designer as soon as she responded back. …[She] was incredibly easy to work with! The little changes I did want, she made without any problem.

I think the different available services, from pre-made to the various tiers of custom work are important. As an indie author, I appreciate the ability to balance expense with the level of customization and detail.

I fell in love with Paper and Sage the first time I visited the website, and I’ll never go anywhere else for my cover-art. Christa is the ultimate professional and I love all the covers she’s done for me, but the cover for The Standout literally stands out. So many people noticed and complimented it during my Kindle Scout campaign, and I know her work majorly contributed to my success as a Kindle Scout winner.

Thank you for making my novel come to life with your beautiful cover! …I had been shopping around for a few weeks before I realized your service was unprecedented.

I had a great experience working with Paper and Sage. I was feeling so frustrated after looking at dozens of sites… The covers [at P&S] are so current and original, I trust the designer’s pulse on the marketplace and that is really important to me.

Although it bills itself as a pre-made cover outlet, P&S actually rides the line between one-on-one designer support and a straight “here’s your cover” download experience. It’s somewhere between custom and pre-made. I liked that a lot. There’s a definite need in this market for a service like that... I liked that I was able to type in a title and my name, then pass it off for a professional tweaking.
