How to design 3D book promotion graphics with Google Slides (FREE TEMPLATES!)

How to design 3D book promotion graphics with Google Slides (FREE TEMPLATES!)

UPDATE: after several months of work, we just launched a brand new 3D book cover mockup tool, and it’s amazing. Go check it out (OOPS it died with Flash, but it’s being rebuilt!)

I’ve been trying to find a way for authors to make better graphics for a long time – for book covers mostly, but also for book promotion graphics and 3D mockups. I’m still trying to find the *perfect* online design solution, but one thing I’m excited about is using Google Slides for design – there’s a lot of functionality, tons of fonts and colors, and it’s free and easy to use.

Just for fun, I used Google Slides to make some 3D promotional graphics authors can use for their free or 99cent deals – you don’t need any special software. Just add your book cover, change the text and download your design. Here’s what they look like (there are 21 of them though, lots of choices). The cool thing is that they look like 3D mockups, but you can actually just use your flat cover.

Here are two more samples… I made some holiday-themed graphics since it’s that time of year, but it’s easy to change the background.

    I can only view, not edit them..

    • Derek Murphy Posted December 19, 2016 12:17 am

      Right – you’ll need to make a copy on your own google account first, then you should be able to edit them. But let me know if not.
