KDP Book Mockups for Canva Sampler


This KDP Book Mockups for Canva Sampler is for you to try out to help you decide if you want to purchase my full KDP Book Mockup Bundle for Canva. This sampler features 4 basic mockups for a 6 x 9 book cover and spines. It is fully editable and all mockup objects are moveable. The custom Canva container frames make it quick and easy to add your cover or page designs.

The mockups included accommodate a 6 x 9 inch cover and spine, stacked in a pile and in a row. For your design to look most realistic, make sure you have a good margin on the edges of your cover design so it doesn’t look crowded.

What you can use this product for

Use these KDP Book Mockups for Canva to display 6 x 9 covers and spines for novels, workbooks, storybooks, textbooks, colouring books, or training manuals. Each mockup works like Photoshop. Quick and easy drag and drop of your designs into the custom-created clip frames for a realistic and professional end-product. 100% customizable to your brand or aesthetic.

Promote or launch your KDP book by using this Canva mockup to display your covers and spines. Create images for your portfolio, shop or social feed in seconds. Show author clients how their books will look printed in ‘real life’, or how your covers will look when printed.

USAGE TERMS: This mockup bundle is for displaying your cover and page designs for sale. You are NOT permitted to resell the mockups themselves in any format. Do not copy them into new Canva templates for resale either. No selling flattened versions of them as mockups.

How to use these KDP Book Mockups for Canva Sampler

Once you download the User PDF, navigate to the last page where you’ll find the license details and also the link to access this KDP Book Mockup template Sampler. The link will take you to a single Canva template containing all 4 mockups.

To use the mockups, all you need to do is drag and drop your JPG or PNG (not transparent is best) design straight into the custom-created container frames. Your design will look like it’s been printed on the book cover or spine. Just like it would in a Photoshop mockup. The spine fold shadows will remain visible over your design. You can edit them to be darker or lighter, depending on how dark or light your design is. See the PDF user guide with more detailed info. The Canva file also contains detailed user instructions for each mockup in the page notes.

Once you’ve opened the template it will save in your designs folder. When you open a new design, navigate to the ‘projects’ folder in the left sidebar, find this template (you’ll recognize it by the cover graphic), click on it, then select the page you want to insert into your new design. This way you won’t be editing the original either.

You can customize all surface colors with one click. Drag and drop or clip your design onto the mockup surface of your choice, add your own background color or texture, add objects from any of my Scene Creator bundles to further customize and add interest to your designs. Drop shadows can be edited by selecting just the shadow section of the object and adjusting the tint, blur or opacity. Instructions are included in the download PDF.
