Testimonials

From Authors…

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.

W. Stuart, Amazon Review for Simple by Dena Nicotra

My narrator said my beautiful cover was one of the main reasons she chose to audition for my audiobook. I’m so thankful for Paper and Sage Designs! This eye-catching cover helped me get the narrator I was hoping for.

Sasha, Goodreads Review for Meet Me in the Middle by Eryn Scott

Christa is friendly, understanding, fast, and designed a cover I simply love! The payments, proof viewing, acceptance, all of it was so easy.

Eryn Scott, The What's in a Name? Series

...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.

Jami Wagner, Date in the Dark

The process was painless. I expressed my ideas and Christa put them into tangible form… Give her your ideas and let her do her thing. That’s all people need to know.

Jessica Ruddick, Birthright

This book was as beautifully written as the cover.  By page 4 I was already held captive... {Read the Full Review on Goodreads}

M. Addison, Goodreads Review for Birthright by Jessica Ruddick

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.

B.M. Sandy, Someone to Stay

[Christa] offered detailed explanation[s] of every step … and included me in every aspect of the decision making. When I did not know about dimensions for a blog ad, [she was] ready and willing to help me out without just going over my head with [her] expertise.

Theresa Sopko, Bewilderments of the Eyes

If you’re looking for a skilled and affordable designer, look no further. The communication is excellent, and the end product will make you proud.

DS Black, The Stubbs: A Novella

Christa was professional, receptive to my vision, and a true artist. I could not be happier with the experience or the results.

K. Vann O’Brien, Wildfire & Avalanche

Everything was perfect. You embraced my vision and designed an amazing cover that I can be proud of! Very professional and author friendly service!

Mandy Fender, Defier

It was really easy and friendly from the start. Very clear instructions and everything was organised and efficient. I felt I was in safe hands!

Chey, Amazon Review for North Pole Reform School by Jaimie Admans

I’ll let you all in on a little secret: I was suckered in by the cover. I mean, just look at it. Look at how cute it is! I want a physical copy for my shelves, because it is absolutely darling. And I’m very happy to announce, that the story inside is just as lovely. This book is charming, well-written, and will hook you in from the start… {Read the Full Review on Amazon}

Jill, Amazon Review for Kissing Frogs by Alisha Sevigny

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.

Benjamin Sobieck, Glass Eye

I was really impressed that Christa took the time to make sure I was satisfied… she rolled with whatever suggestions and feedback I gave her [and it] was really encouraging in terms of knowing you’re getting a quality product. Now, I’ve got a beautiful, eye-catching cover!

K. Ryan, Finding Emma

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.

Nicole Sobon, The Outbreak Duology

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.

Laurie Baxter, A Charlie Brown Christmas & Who Does He Think He’s Fooling?

I really enjoyed working with Christa. The process was easy, and she responded quickly to questions and comments. I’m really excited to show my cover to the world.

Jessica L Randall, Lovers’ Quarrel

As soon as I looked at Christa’s beautiful website I knew that she would design me a perfect cover for The Memory Game. She did and it was a really easy and enjoyable process too. She is enthusiastic and friendly and a pleasure to deal with... I don’t mind saying that as an indie author, I had always designed my own covers and whilst I was happy with what I had done, as soon as I saw what could be done for me, it made me realise that the small extra cost is so worth it and I will certainly use Christa again. I’m so proud of my new cover, and I feel as though that image now adds something to the story contained within.

Sharon Sant, The Memory Game

I was really intrigued by this book mainly from the cover. I know you aren’t suppose to judge a book by one, but it’s gorgeous…  {Read the Full Review on Amazon}

Amazon Customer, Amazon Review for Dead Girl Walking by Sharon Sant

I love how I sent Christa so much information and she was able to take what I had imagined and make it so much prettier… Christa was so open about everything I sent her, never making me feel like I was too enthusiastic, but matching my excitement pretty much every step of the way. Also I love how communicative she is. My previous experience (with a different designer) left me kind of in the dark about what was happening and I didn’t feel like I was actually a part of the process. Christa has been awesome in getting back to me in a timely manner EVERY TIME I reached out to her.

S.M. Smith, A Boy Worth Choosing

This story is so good! I love that … And this cover!! So cute!  {Read the Full Review on Amazon}

Jess, Amazon Review for The Ghost of You by Amanda Burckhard

As a returning customer, it was another job well done. They're professional [and] their pre-made book covers are top notch.

James Hanson, Trancelike

…professional, stylish, and personable…

Rebecca Jamison, Chemistry Lessons

Working with Christa was thoroughly enjoyable! …[I]t’s easy and well worth the money!

Jo Hook, Would You Share Your Secret?

Super friendly and prompt feedback and delivery! Christa is a total joy to work with!

Becky Wicks, Our Frozen Wings

Working with Paper and Sage was awesome – I enjoyed every minute of the collaboration. Creating covers to work well alongside each other must be hard and I could never have imagined they would come out so well, capturing the tone and the essence of The Estate Series perfectly. Christa has such an amazing vision and is fast, efficient, and above all friendly.

Mel Sherratt, The Estate Series

People should know that they are in good hands entrusting their book covers with Paper and Sage… Wonderful. Easy. Professional.

SJ West, Watchers & Vampire Conclave

Flannel Quilter, Amazon Review for Cursed by SJ West

Christa is a talented artist, who really listens to the author before beginning a project…Her time management and organizational skills are excellent. I was concerned that the cover wouldn’t be scary enough, but [she] took my concept and ran with it, and nailed it! It far exceeded my expectaions. I couldn’t ask for a better cover.

Rick Poveromo, Blood Dance

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.

Anya Monroe, Heart of Stone

I have to say that the cover of this book is what initially caught my attention, and was, ultimately, what drew me in. {Read the Full Review on Amazon}

Rachel Lightwood, Amazon Review for Maggie and the Mercury Retrograde by Anya Monroe

I loved that Christa listened and took on board everything that I wanted. She worked with me to create the perfect cover for my book. She was patient and helpful.
