[Custom Covers] Blanks, Templates - get them, share them, help to modify and create

Edit post!

Hey everyone,

a while ago I started a thread 'Covers for Fanfiction Lovers' (you can find it here) but it turned into something new - a thread about generic covers for your ebook collection. A thread to give and to take, to help and to learn. So it was time to divid the old thread and put all generic cover posts in this new one.

You want to know what this thread is about exactly? I tell you.

Here you can:

- Download high quality generic covers

- Upload high quality generic covers

- Learn how to make your own covers (every question is welcome!)

- Give your experience when you already know how to make your own covers (I would love some advise myself because I just learned how to do this)

- Share settings for the 'Generate Cover Plugin' for covers you find here or new ones (if you like export the zip-files and put them here but please mention the font you used, it helps a lot!)

- Help to modify and create new styles, new covers, new looks with the stuff you find here (we absolutely encourage you to do that)

- Even requests for specific covers are welcome


In one word: SHARE.

When everyone gives something back then the work is not so much for one alone. Even when you don't know how to do anything of this, then at least leave feedback!

Don't be shy, try it!

We all doing this just for fun and not for any profit.

Do you have anymore generic covers I’m looking for ones that have that old leather bound book look like these.
Since these are no series covers, I'm putting them up here. Though you have to fill in the text for yourself, only the covers this time.

Hope that's what you were looking for.

Hey everyone,

I can't help myself, I love to make covers. So I created some on my own. Again only the covers, text you have to fill in for yourself.

Hope you like them, please let me know (and wishes for generic covers I will take).

I now found some sides with textures and ornaments (all totally free to use for any purpose), so I think I will experiment with them and see what will come out of it.

Meaning that probably you will get some more in time and they will all be my own creation.

P.S. I also found some more book covers on free sides.
