KDP: Use cover templates - this is how it works
Authors who want to publish their work as a paperback need an appealing cover. Amazon is also happy to lend a hand here, namely with cover templates that you can download free of charge.A cover template serves as a foundation for the final design and is therefore very practical. At Kindle Direct Publishing, you can get a template in seconds.
KDP: Create cover template in three stepsYou can find the address for cover templates at this link. There you proceed as follows:
- Left under "Select template" you first decide on a format. It will become clear that there is no one right format for paperbacks - from 12.7 x 20.32 cm up to (rather unusual) 21.59 x 21.59 cm, a wide range is available.
- Then enter the page number of your book.
- As a third option, select a base color.
- Then click "Download Cover Template".
