Our designers work colsely with the clients to create a custom 4-Color book cover design. The design will also need to take into consideration the number of ink colors that will be used to print the cover. Most covers are printed in Four Color Process which allows for use of full color images. If printing costs only allow for one or two colors the design will usually use black or another dark color and a contrasting or complimentary color to create a very effective two-color cover.
