Create Your Own Pulp Fiction Cover

Thrilling Tales of the Downright Unusual author and illustrator Bradley W. Schenck has released the Pulp-O-Mizer, a free online tool for making your own vintage-looking pulp fiction cover.

As you can see by the image embedded above, we created a GalleyCat logo straight out of classic science fiction magazines. Here’s more about the tool:

The rectangular cover images are a great choice for your blog posts, discussion boards, Twitter, and pretty much anything else… except for Facebook. For Facebook you should select one of the Square options (a square on a white background, or a square on black). Facebook does cruel and unusual things to the rectangular images, but the square cover images have been raised in hardened circumstances and trained to withstand torture. So they’ll be all right…

If you really like your pulp fiction cover, you can order it on a Spiral Bound Notebook, Cards/Invitations or Flyers. UPDATE: Schenck reminded us: “the only way to actually customize them properly is through the Pulp-O-Mizer page.”

Check it out: “Cards and Flyers can be customized with your own messages and images on the inside (for cards) or on the back (for flyers). Just click through to the product page and select “Customize It”.”
