CreateSpace cover, matte beats glossy…

Recently, I updated the paperback cover on my new/first fiction book, which have listed through CreateSpace. No expert when it comes to publishing but what became obvious to me is that the matte covers really look the business, whilst the glossy singles out the book as self-published.

The glossy covers tend to curl up more, have odd white specks and the print is not as clear/detailed. The sheen is also a negative when put against a crisp matte copy. See pictures below for yourself, although the front cover capture shows the glossy paperback in a better light than it actually is.

Hope you will agree, the matter covers look quite tidy and very professional.
