I ordered broken wings through CS using the cream paper. For my style of art (lots of grey shades) the cream paper looks so much better, than the white paper. The binding doesn’t look like it’s going to hold up though Maybe I’m just rough with my books. I still think Ka-blam and RAdirect are far superior printers. The upside to createspace is they are from amazon, so the books are suppose to autolink to the corresponding kindle books. So I’d give them a C+, the price is cheap, the quality is ok, there are the perks of the Amazon platform, and the turn around time is about a week. I’d give a higher grade, but there is always the threat of amazon dropping the ban hammer on Songbirds, just cuz they feel like it.
the paper is definitely a warm cream/beige color, my camera couldn’t capture it though.
