KDP Book Mockups for Canva


This set of KDP Book Mockups for Canva features 11 individual mockups for displaying your book covers, spines, and page designs. 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 the following common KDP sizes (in inches):
6 x 9 inches
5 x 8 inches
5.5 x 8.5 inches
5.25 x 8 inches
6 x 8 inches
8 x 10 inches
8.5 x 11 inches
7 x 10 inches
8.5 x 8.5 inches, or any square ratio

Also included are 3 different spine widths to accommodate thin, regular or thicker books.

Please note that in order for your page and cover mockups to fit well, you need to have a good margin on each edges of your designs, at least half an inch (2cm). Common sizes used in the mockups (e.g. Mockup 1 fits 6×9 | 5×8 | 5.5×8.5 | 5.25×8 books), vary very slightly from each other but are close enough in ratio to fit into the same mockup area if your margins are sized as suggested.

What you can use this product for

Use these KDP Book Mockups for Canva to display covers and pages 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.

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

Once you download the User PDF, navigate to the last page where you’ll find the license details and also the link to access the KDP Book mockups template. The link will take you to a single Canva template containing all 11 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 pages. 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.
