Custom Branded Covers
In addition to creating content that satisfies our own high standards of quality, we want to work to satisfy the different needs of test-prep providers of various sizes around the country. We offer bulk discounts and licensing agreements to clients who want to purchase or print multiple copies of our materials to use in classes, provide to tutors and students, or sell in their stores. We have a range of online tools and resources to support teaching and learning. And for companies who want to carefully curate the content and branding they share with students, we also offer a variety of customization options.
Many of our clients are long-time educators who have already developed their own instructional materials, and they sometimes prefer to use those materials rather than our full guides. However, they still need high-quality practice tests and questions that their students can’t just look up online. We can create custom book files that include the practice content that you want to use while excluding any instructional content that might be redundant or inconsistent with the content you’ve already developed.

Many test-prep providers like having the flexibility to print and staple exactly the number of practice tests they need for each class in their own offices. However, the College Board does not provide permission for test prep providers to use any official practice tests in their courses. Even if they did, their practice tests are all available for free online: since many students may already be familiar with the College Board’s official tests, they are not suitable for use as diagnostic exams in a classroom setting.
Ivy Global offers licensing options for test prep providers who would like to print copies of our exams to use in classroom or tutoring settings. Licensing costs are based on the number of copies you would like permission to print and distribute. We can provide individual, print-ready files for each exam you would like to license. Files are re-formatted for individual use, so they don’t include book-specific information like chapter names or page numbers.
Customization options are also available for licensed content. In addition to tests, practice problems or instructional content can be licensed for print and distribution. Online materials distributed for free by Ivy Global must be licensed for commercial use.

Custom Branded Score Reports
A score report is one of the most essential tools in the test-prep toolkit. Our Cloud score report is easier to use and provides more detailed results than the scoring worksheets and spreadsheets currently used by many prep companies, and it doesn’t cost anything. It also includes answer sheets for publicly available official exams, in addition to all Ivy Global exams. That makes it an obvious choice for most of our clients.
We’re also currently beta testing custom branded Cloud reports: during the beta testing period, you can get in on a special opportunity to produce custom score reports with your company’s cover pages for free. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire now, before beta testing is over!
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is there a minimum order for custom covers?
A: Yes, we do have some minimum order thresholds, but they depend on the specific content that you’d like to use and the extent of the customization that you request. The smallest minimums are for content with custom covers only, which can be printed on demand. That includes our ISEE and SSAT content. We can fulfill initial orders for as few as 25 books for some titles. Many of our more popular books use a higher grade of paper and require offset printing, so for most of our titles the minimum initial order is 200 units.
Q: What is the pricing for custom covers?
A: Pricing for custom covers depends on the title, quantity ordered, and amount of customization required. Our pricing is reasonable and test prep companies and schools find it comparable to purchasing off-the-shelf solutions for their students.
Q: How long does it take to get custom books?
A: The time from order to delivery typically takes between 2-6 weeks. Set-up time can vary widely, depending on your needs. If you require minimal design support and customization, we can produce and get your approval on electronic proofs in as little as a few days; if you require more support and customization, the process can take up to a few weeks. You should contact us as soon as you decide you might be interested in a custom book, so that we can work together to ensure you have your books in time for classes!
Q: Are there any set-up fees?
A: In most cases where our content is used as is, there are no set-up fees. In some cases, there are some costs associated with setting up new custom content, and we typically include a set-up fee to cover those costs. The specific amounts depend on how much help you need setting up your custom content. However, if you plan to make larger or recurring orders then we may be able to absorb some of the set-up costs. Contact us at email@example.com with your specific needs for more detailed information!
Q: I have a logo, but not a cover design. Can you help?
A: Yes! We have a design team on staff, and we can work with you to incorporate your logo into a cover you’ll love.
Q: Can I put the content that I license on my website?
A: For public websites, no. We do offer licensing solutions for login-required sites and typically provide licensing contracts for a specific number of users or printed copies. You may not reproduce or distribute electronic versions our print content on your public websites even if you have purchased a license to print that content. However, in addition to the content we license for print, we also create and publish online content. If you’re interested in licensing content from our blog, study pages, or other websites for use on your sites, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also link to our online content without any licensing agreement.
Q: Are all mentions of “Ivy Global” removed from the books?
A: The most conspicuous mentions—those on the cover—are always removed. The outer cover no longer includes any Ivy Global branding. Upon request, we can also remove our name from the inner cover. In some of our books, our name appears in footers, and we can also remove our name from footers upon request.
