How do I upload a cover?


  • For a print book, you'll create the interior file first and make that print ready. With the interior file ready, the cover step offers some options - you can create a cover from our templates or design and upload your own.

    If you want to upload your own cover, the option to select is "Advanced One-Piece Cover Designer." This tool will provide the precise measurements for your cover file, as well as an upload button.

    Questions about a book cover for a spiral bound book.  Does it cost extra for a front cover photo in color?  For a back cover, can it be just a solid color, no printing or does it need to have the ISBN barcode printed on it?  I assume that would mean a white back cover, to accommodate the barcode.  Accurate?  

  • Hi BRF_75,

    It does not cost extra to have the book cover in color.

    The back cover can be a solid barcode. If you want retail distribution, you will have to have a barcode. If you use one of our cover wizards, we will add the barcode automatically. If you upload your own cover, we do not add the barcode.

    Spiralbound books via Lulu Create cannot have ISBNs.
