Frequently asked questions
How do Custom Premades work?
Custom Premades are simple. Unlike Custom Covers, they do not require a deposit. You simply fill out the Custom Premade form, and if your cover is chosen to be made into a premade, you will be notified, shown the cover, and receive a link to purchase it. You will have 48 hours from the time you receive the link to complete your purchase. If you choose not to purchase the cover, that's fine too! The cover will then be sold as a premade to anyone who chooses to claim it.
Am I guaranteed to receive a Custom Premade?
Filling out the Custom Premade form does NOT guarantee that you will receive a cover. It is, in essence, a type of raffle. I will frequently go through the submissions and choose one at my discretion. However, you ARE guaranteed to have first buying rights to your premade, should yours be chosen.
How can I increase my chances of receiving a Custom Premade?
Has the author put enough thought into the form to make it worth my while?
Is the idea specific, and yet general enough to sell as a premade should the author pass on the cover? (For example, purple-skinned humans with elephant trunks and togas are likely not going to sell to many people. A brunette vampire in a leather jacket with a cross around her neck, on the other hand, might.)
Will this premade require more time than it is worth?
What is the price of a Custom Premade?
Like my normal premades, the price of a Custom Premade will vary in accordance with the time it took to create it and the resources used in the process. However, you can expect the price to range from $100 to $300. If for any reason it exceeds this range (very rare), I will notify you beforehand, as well as offer you a payment plan should you choose to purchase it.
What if I like it but want a revision before I purchase?
