**Please note that sometimes dimensions and proportions are hard to match, so for this file our designers carefully select the most interesting part of the artwork.


IMPORTANT: Please test before you print!
Our covers are carefully made and taken care of, in order to offer you a great quality product. But, if you intend to print the artwork, we recommend that you print a test copy first. We take no responsibility for bad printing results. Please bear in mind that the quality of prints depends a lot on the printer factory and its equipment, the kind of paper etc.

If you decide to print your cover in a large format (on banners, posters etc.), we suggest using the Vinyl size file.


All covers are made with GIMP and INSCAPE apps.
