Your book templates do not have a readymade area for a barcode to be included, what should we do about that?
You are correct. Space has not been immediately been left for a barcode to be inserted into the book template designs we did not leave this extra space because to the untrained eye, it may not make sense to have it. Also for our customers who what an eBook cover design it would may not be necessary. However, the text area, book title and author name areas on the templates are all movable and can be adjusted to leave space for a barcode to be inserted when needed.
Could you be a little more specific about what the system requirements and what version of Photoshop are needed to edit your templates?
If you are using any version of CS I think that Adobe has adjusted their products to overcome the drawback that there used to be from opening files from different versions. However, in the previous versions of Photoshop prior to CS, you may run into issues opening files between older and new releases. So in general, I’m pretty sure that any version of CS should be fine to open our templates.
However, if you would like to test further, I suggest you download one of our FREE icons. They were made between and older and newer version of Photoshop. If your current version can open one of these icons or images, your version of CS should work just fine. You can access them HERE.
Yes, you can. The files are layered Photoshop files. So, if you find an image or graphic that you prefer over the included images, you may adjust and replace them at will.
There are several online sites that we use to get images from. Visit our Resources Page to review them now.
If the book templates are for ebooks as well, why is there a front, back, and spine since most ebooks just have a front cover and not a back or spine?
Can I pay a cheaper price for just the front cover of a book template since I just need it for an eBook cover?
Yes, we can customize any template that you want. Please visit our Customization Page for more details.

When I change the wording of the template inside PhotoShop, the font changes to some other type of font style. What’s wrong?
To install the new font onto your Windows PC, do the following:
1. Open Windows Explorer by clicking the right mouse button while over the Windows “start” menu button.
2. An option to “Explore” will show up from a new menu. Select it.
3. This will open up the “Windows Explorer” window.
4. Select the “C” drive from the left side of the window and you will see a listing of all of the folders in the root directory of your computer shown on the right side of the window.
5. Find the folder which has all of the fonts from the template that you purchased and downloaded to your computer’s hard drive.
6. Select the fonts folder; then select all the fonts that are in this folder. From the Windows Explorer menu at the top select Edit > Copy.
7. After you have copied the template fonts from your template folder, select the “C” drive again from the left side of the window. You will see a listing of all of the folders in the root directory of your computer shown on the right side of the window again.
8. Double click on the “Windows” folder on the right side of the window.
9. In the new set of files that show up from the “Windows” folder, double click on the “Fonts” folder.
10. This folder will now display all of the fonts that you have currently installed on your computer.
11. From the Windows Explorer top menu, select Edit > Paste.
12. Windows should now paste into your Windows/Fonts folder, and the fonts that you previously copied from your template folder.
13. You may want to restart your computer from this point to make certain that the new fonts are recognized by your computer. You will at least need to restart PhotoShop.
14. You should now be able to see the same font change within PhotoShop after you restart. PhotoShop may also ask you to update layers when you open your new template. Be certain to select “update” and the new font should be recognized by PhotoShop. If not, you may need to reselect the font style from within PhotoShop after you have restarted it from the ”Character” tab.
15. Once one or all of these steps have been completed, you should be able to change the wording of the font for your template while maintaining the same font style.
The turnaround time mostly depends on the template that was chosen; however, for basic customization, we attempt to follow the following basic time frame:
– For Basic Customization of a “Logo Template“, turnaround time is usually 3-5 business days.
– For Basic Customization of a “Product Template“, turnaround time is usually 5-7 business days.
– For Basic Customization of a “Web Template“, turnaround time is usually 10-15 business days.
These times are normally adhered to; however, the process can only begin when all aspects or questions about the design are answered by the client, and we are not waiting on any files to be sent, or answers to questions that we may need.
