Re: Cream vs White Paper

I find the white paper to be a bright cool white, brighter than most standard copy stock similar to a photo stock but in a matte finish (color books do have a sheen but definitely not gloss).


The cream is darker than that in mass market books but comparable to cream stock trade paperbacks on my shelf. Both colors fluctuate slightly at times so it is difficult to really explain them. The best thing to do is print two samples one in each so you can see for yourself and decide what suits your book.

Re: Cream vs White Paper

Thanks, R.C., that helps. I'll stick with the cream for the current projects since they're fiction and white seems fairly uncommon in trade paper editions from the major publishers. Too bad CS doesn't have more paper choices but no worries.
