This service is designed especially for self publishing authors who want to achieve commercial success with a beautiful cover for their published book.


  1. Tell us about your cover design idea by answering a few design questions during and after the submission process.
  2. An art director will ensure that your vision translates clearly into precise instructions to the designer, is appropriate for the target audience, and meets book-industry standards.
  3. Once the concept is finalized, a Trafford designer will create an attractive and appropriate cover for your book under the direct supervision of our art director.
  4. After the cover design has been developed, you will have the option of accepting or rejecting the design. Although the art director and our expert design team are here to give you helpful guidance, at Trafford, the author is always in control.

The Trafford Professional Art Direction service will work to make your book look as attractive, polished and professional as possible.
