Character Cards

Character cards are the same price as a custom cover with a single character.
You'll receive both the RGB and CMYK versions of the final card so you can get them printed, as well as put them on your website or social media.
Cards come with two sides, the front being the image, the back can then have information on it, for instance details about the character / your logo / details of the book /  your website...
Sizes are decided by you, so you can ask your printer for the sizes they will print. I recommend 3 1/4 inches width, 5 1/4 inches height, with an 1/8 inch bleed.
Everything used within the image will have the license that allows you to use your card as merchandise.
(If a specific DAZ asset I don't own is required, the cost will be passed on.)
Initial concept delivered within 3 business days.
For multiple purchases I offer the following extras:
  • 3+ cards and I'll convert them all into bookmarks as well
  • 5+ cards and I'll also add in a social media header banner (your choice of platform - Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn) featuring your cards or your book cover (provided I was the one that created your book cover)

Karen was a blast to work with on my cover, which I’ve received so many compliments for, and my character cards. She made my protagonist come to life in a way that blew my mind. Her experience, patience, and responsiveness will have me coming back time and time again.

Typography Service

I also offer a typography service, for those authors who have a favorite illustration artist and just need the typography to turn the artwork into a finished book cover.

Since the amount of work required depends somewhat on the image and whether the artist has left enough space for the typography, there isn't a one price fits all cases...

In general, provided there's enough space for the typography, or if something needs adjusting and you can supply me with the PSD, or put me in contact with the artist, then the price is $60. However, in the rare cases where I have to extend the artwork because it's not the right size for what you want, or there's no space for any typography, then the price is going to be dependent on the amount of work. Please message me with your specific request - if it is one of the rare cases, I will explain why.

We loved the artwork for our cover but realized it would take top notch custom typography to make the minimalist style truly shine. The very first conversation with Karen put us immediately at ease; we knew our work was in expert, genre-savvy hands. In addition to providing a gorgeous design, she was communicative every step of the way and delivered the final product much sooner than expected. Highly recommended, and would work with her again in a heartbeat!

Karen has worked with me on several books now on typography. Her skills are top notch, her prices are reasonable, and I will continue to return as I continue to publish. If you’re looking for someone to do your typography you can't go wrong working with her.

Hi! My name is Karen Dimmick.
I've loved fantasy and magic for as long as I can remember & have been in the publishing industry for nearly a decade.
I know how important is it for a book to look its best, and for potential readers to be able to tell at a glance it's a book they'll enjoy. Without that, even great stories go unread.
As you'll see from my testimonials, my clients love working with me because I'm easy to work with, communicate well and deliver on time, like you'd expect any professional to do.
Born in England, I now live in Florida, USA with my husband. I've traveled the world, living in Europe and Asia. I've had my own bestselling non-fiction book, as well as fiction books, so I've seen both sides of the cover design process.
I believe authors should be able to give their books every possible chance to succeed, with a cover that attracts readers and meets the reader's expectations for the genre.
That's why I created Arcane Covers - to help you make your book shine.
