Last month, I wrote a refresher post comparing Smashwords and Draft2Digital. This month, I think it’s probably time for a refresher post comparing KDP Print and IngramSpark.
First up, KDP Print
Owned by Amazon, KDP Print is possibly the most popular U.S. site for distributing self-published paperback books.
- Publishing through KDP Print is free.
- The publication process is outlined in several easy-to-follow steps.
- KDP Print has a free online cover-creator. If one of their many templates doesn’t meet your needs, they also provide free downloadable cover templates you can use to build your own cover.
- Paper choices are either cream or white, and paperback cover finishes are either matte or glossy.
- KDP Print also provides free downloadable templates to ensure your manuscript is properly formatted for printing. (Note: This template also works for IngramSpark.)
- KDP Print offers the option of using your own purchased ISBN or using a free one they provide.
