Posters: Author Promo

There’s nothing quite as attention-grabbing as a poster. Book signings, conventions, your local bookshop or library; a poster is an injection of life and drama. A simple poster design based on your cover and a little supporting text is $45. More complex projects are charged at $30 an hour, and I will estimate the timescale before the start.

My pricing is based on design complexity, not physical size. I can do 36 inches by 24, or even larger, if you can source a willing printer. My image resources are much smaller than this, so if you need photorealistic graphics at that size, you will have to supply them yourself. Alternatively, I can take some time to create a collage-style design composed of smaller images. If you’re budget-conscious and want a huge poster, it’s perfectly possible; a simple quote in an atmospheric font can look striking. I also have a large collection of vector line drawings and silhouette graphics which are usable at any size.

A mysterious forest for T. Damon’s fantasy novel, The Falling. This poster was intended for libraries, so needed some white space to write book signing dates on. I made the white space appealing and relevant to the book, which features fairies and winged forest spirits.
