Requested back cover barcode measuring size

How about finally updating your PDF Submission Specification so your  proof team stop resizing barcodes from 2" wide and 1.4" high (your new  requirements from 7 months back) to 2" wide and 1.2" high (as stated in  your manual), CreateSpace?

Re: Requested back cover barcode measuring size

FYI, this forum is for authors and is not normally read by Createspace staff.

 

If there is something you would like to communicate to them, you should use the "Contact Us" option.

 

Also, FYI, Createspace is about to go toes-up and will be replaced by KDP Print. So they are unlikely to make any changes to anything.

Stick with the size as shown on the cover templates. If CS wants to replace the barcode with their own -- which they apprently do all the time now -- they must make it cover the existing barcode.

Re: Requested back cover barcode measuring size

One might suggest that if the barcode is fine with them, then it's "proper."

 

Don't worry so much about such a small thing.
