The Ultimate Free 3D Book Cover Maker Kit

Before you get my free 3D book cover maker kit, you need to know one very important fact:

People always judge books by their covers, plain and simple!

If you have a 2 dimensional cover image for your lead magnet or book then you’ve automatically lost a large amount of potential customers and email subscribers.

Free 3D Book Cover Maker Video Guide

Here is a short video showing you how to make 3D book covers easily with my 3 step process.

As you can see, it’s super simple to do. Below you’ll find the written instructions along with the free 3D book cover templates.

Step 1: Creating your 2D book cover quickly and easily

When it comes to creating images online for free nothing beats Canva. You can quickly and easily whip up professional looking images on their free platform.

This is your first stop to create the actual 2D book cover. It’s important to remember, never use Canva’s free images if you plan to sell your pdf. If you need public domain images to spruce up your book cover then I recommend Pixabay.com.

They have thousands of free public domain images you can use. Once you have the images you want, simply upload them to Canva.

After you create your free account, make sure to select the ‘Pinterest Graphic’ option then drag and drop your images into place with Canva’s easy to use editor. Pick the color and font you want to work with and create your 2D book cover.

Once your creation is complete simply download it as a ‘.png’ file.

Step 2: Download the free 3D book templates

I have for you a 3D book and software cover template pack that comes with:

3D Book template (White) – typically used for books, special reports and lead magnets, this template looks like a hard cover book. This is my favorite template if I’m giving away a lead magnet.

3D Software template (Black) – perfect if you’re selling or giving away software, plugins or browser extensions to your target audience

Important: all templates have transparent backgrounds. If you want them to have white backgrounds then simply change the file extension from .png to .jpg.

Once you have the 3D templates and your 2D book cover then it’s all a matter of putting them together.

Step 3: Stretching the 2D cover into the 3D realm

The final part of the 3-step process is by far easiest. All you have to do, is go to the free Pixlr Editor and follow these 4 easy steps:

  1. Click ‘File’ then select ‘Open Image’, choose one of the free templates from above. Extra Tip: if you want to change the direction the template is facing then click ‘Image’ and select ‘Flip Canvas Horizontally’.
  2. Click ‘Layer’ then select ‘Open Image as Layer’, choose the 2D book cover image you created earlier on Canva.
  3. Click ‘Edit’ then select ‘Free Distort’.
  4. Drag the corners of the 2D image onto the template.
  5. Once done, click ‘File’ then save as a ‘.png’ file. You’re done!

Remember to watch the video again to see how I do it in real time. It really is simple to do.

  • I ordered the print-ly course and the 52 printable templates. The only problem is the information is in html format which is on no use. pdf or png templates would make more sense. please advise.

  • It’s not html, it comes in a zip file to save space for you and me.

    you need to unzip it to access the 52 printables.
