Publishing and trim sizes

Last week I referred that I am looking into the print on demand services available. I have come to the conclusion that I will use both Createspace (CS) and Lightening Source (LS). As I have gone through the reviews for both of these services it turns out it is best to use CS for the Amazon website and then use LS for extended distribution (meaning bookstores, online retailers, libraries and academic institutions). Here is the thing, CS offers extended distribution but bookstores and online retailers are boycotting anything that comes from CS (Amazon’s company). There is no such issue with LS.

I initially intended to have the comic available in A4 size. Unfortunately CS doesn’t offer that particular trim size (LS does) so I decided to have it in 7x10 inches, a size available in both companies. Next week we will talk about the digital versions of the comic!
Thank you for visiting!

See you next Sunday!
Take Care
