Book Cover Design
A book sells by its cover. A book buyer is trained to pick up books that have a certain look for a certain category. It doesn’t matter how good your story is, there are people who need extra push to buy your book. An eye-candy Book Cover Design can provide that push. We design book covers that grab attention, not in bookshelves but also on online stores. We have the team of best book cover designers and industry experts to make custom cover designs that will help to sell copies and provide reading pleasure to your readers.
We have several years of experience in helping Book publishers to create stunning Book Cover Designs.

We also do 3D cover design for online promotion and sales. Book cover designing includes front cover, back cover as well as spine ( for print books ). For Hardbound books, it also includes design of inner flaps.
We provide cover designs which support multiple print platform like CreateSpace, Lightning Source or Lulu as well as eBook platforms like Amazon, Apple & others.
Artistic brief is usually shared by the author / publishers where the concept of the book is provided. A brief synopsis is provided by the author giving the artist an idea about his preference for the book cover. For print book covers, we need to know the dimension of the book and the page count ( for designing the spine ) along with the printer’s guidelines.
Cost to Design Book covers
Book cover designing charges start from USD 70. It includes two covers concepts and refinement of one concept.

We convert around 200-250 eBooks a month – handling all kinds of book right from simple trade books to interactive / Read Aloud Children’s eBooks. We have done around 20,000+ eBooks till date.

Cost to convert to eBook formats
Our pricing starts from 35 cents per page and can go upto USD 2 per page. It depends upon the format required and the complexity of the book. A simple fiction book with only text will cost you 35 cents per page. Footnotes, indexing and additional features are charged additionally.

Reality Premedia, has been working with Publishers for two decades and this gave us an in-depth insight into the challenges faced by them & how this industry operates. We realized that the Publishers with lots of content & a controlled distribution channel want their own White Label eBook Application. It was back in the year 2014 that we launched the White Label eReader Solutions Services for iOS, Android, and the web as well. The major concern of digital distribution is security of the content– which is also provided by our White Labelled eReading Application.
The eBook Reading Application and Distribution Platform supports both reflowable ePub and fixed layout ePub. It also supports PDF reading as an option. Our e-Reader Solution allows the users to preview different books present in the Publisher’s library before purchase. It has advanced features like adding notes and highlights, bookmark pages, change Font Size/Type for a Reflowable Book, Search within Books, print select pages. This can further be customised to add new features or turn off existing features.
All purchased eBooks are securely linked to the user’s account itself and there is no possibility of unauthorized copying, forwarding, and sharing of the content.
White Label eBook Platform Solutions for eBooks had become the need of the hour for publishers who have controlled channel to distribute their content, have specialised requirements not supported in general purpose readers and need to white label their Ebook reader.
AR has an important role to play in creating new age digital experiences for readers. Our theory is that the digital experience of a book, should not be an exact replica of the print book. Publishers need to prepare digital content as an incentive for the reader. There needs to be a reward for downloading the digital experience as compared to the print book. This presentation shares 9 ideas on how AR can be integrated in children books. These Augmented Reality books can have direct impact on sales revenues
Augmenting a New Life To Books!
Our teams are experts in developing content and deploying mobile and desktop apps for AR. We work with all types of Augmented Reality engines and SDKs including Wikitude, Vuforia, Unity, Total Immersion, Ar Labs etc. and are also well versed in using Kinects. Leap motion, Occulus, etc.
This video is an Augmented Reality implementation of the Little Iti book. Little ITI travels the globe in her dreams and visits animals from different places. Using Augmented Reality we have enhanced the reading experience for kids by recreating the scenes in 3d. A fun and interactive experience for kids.
Color Me – AR Coloring Book
The Color Me app demo is a fun and innovative idea that brings coloring books to life using Augmented Reality. This demo is a culmination of our love for Minions and Augmented Reality. Children can add any colors to the minion drawings. Once they are done with the coloring, parents can download the app and scan the image to view the creations in 3d in the children’s colors! A perfect reward for children and an excellent use-case for integrating AR in children books.
Content migration is required for any publisher moving to newer platforms & technology. With our Content Migration Service, you can be rest assured that your legacy data will be migrated quickly and accurately. We follow “Human-approach” for content migration – involving a team of people doing the work of copying and pasting the content from one platform to another, as well as manually ensuring that the layout is exactly retained.
We will establish the correct production processes as per your requirement to achieve accuracy and consistent results. We specialize in the conversion of Quark documents to Adobe InDesign. We also do conversions from electronic or hard copy format to the desired format, including SGML/XML/HTML and DTDs.
