I want to start this blog by thanking all the authors and clients I work with for all of their support and continued business. This year has been the best year yet for Aero Gallerie, and it’s all because of you, the authors! Being able to design for you is one of the greatest pleasures of my life, and every cover I do brings me so much happiness and fulfillment. In the years ahead, I am very optimistic that Aero Gallerie will continue to grow and become even better.
When I started this business 3 years ago, I had no portfolio to call my own. I had worked for another book cover design company for several years prior, but was not able to use that work to advertise my skills as a designer. As a result, I kept my prices low–lower than most of my competitors–to build up that portfolio of work. As Aero Gallerie has grown, so have the expenses! Before, it was as simple as having an account for stock images and a website payment. Now we’re finding monthly expenses for our software and bookkeeping! It’s been amazing to see a dream of mine grow to this point.
Effective on January 1st, 2018, Aero Gallerie will be increasing its rates on book cover packages. It is my wish to keep prices as low as possible for my clients–after all, everyone likes to save a little money where they can, and for an author, costs for editing, formatting, and cover design can all eat away at the bottom line of a person’s sales. But it is my belief that this change in pricing will allow me to grow and find awesome new services to bring to you.
Updated Pricing (Effective January 1, 2018):
- Custom designed book cover, created to your specifications.
- Includes finished images for application on Amazon, B&N, etc.
E-Book/Print ComboBest Value!
- Finished e-book images for Amazon, B&N, etc. and for promotional purposes.
- Internal title page for your interior formatting.
- CreateSpace print layout, ready for submission!
- Includes projects such as business cards, advertisements, Facebook graphics, bookmarks, etc.
- Special projects may subject to a $30/hr artwork charge.
All clients who have already scheduled work will be grandfathered into the old pricing. Anything scheduled AFTER January 1st will be subject to the new pricing. I’m sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have questions, please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Secondly, as many of you know, the holiday season is upon us. Because of the hustle and bustle of the holidays, traveling, etc., Aero Gallerie will be taking a brief holiday hiatus beginning on December 22nd and returning on January 2nd. There will be no new projects scheduled during this time. However, if you have a cover project in progress during this time, you can still expect to receive minor revisions through the duration of the hiatus. I’ll also be responding to e-mails as usual!
Thank you all so very very much again. This year has not been without its challenges, but I am certain that even greater things are on the horizon.
