Book cover designer for hire in Canada

In general, books are not very visual. The majority of books exist as black words printed on white paper. Your book cover, however, is your chance to bring the contents of your book to life visually. Your book’s cover is its first impression, and people will make all sorts of assumptions about your book based on even a one-second glimpse of its exterior. Is there a couple on the cover holding hands? Readers will assume it's a romance. Is there a shadowy figure on the front walking down a dark and moody alley? It must be a thriller. Is the cover sparse, with uniquely illustrated typography? That looks like literary fiction.

In other words, your book cover needs to do the talking for your book — it’s your title’s #1 marketing tool. It’s a big job, and you want your cover to do it as effectively as possible. If you live in the Great White North, this will likely mean you’re seeking out a talented book cover designer for hire in Canada.

After all, a good book cover is more than just eye candy. A good book cover stands out even as a thumbnail in a digital store. Its quality is equally as high in digital format as it is on a hard copy. It establishes the genre of your work while also standing out from the other titles it's grouped with. Knowing how to navigate all of these different needs comes with experience in the industry.

Luckily, Reedsy is here to make it easy for you to find your ideal book cover designer for hire in Canada — or elsewhere in the world. Our designers go through a rigorous vetting process, and we only accept the top 3% of talent in the industry. What’s more, you can see samples of every designer’s past work before you commit to a collaboration. Sign up for a totally free account and start browsing through their portfolios today.
