[KDP proof] 'Not for Resale' banner

Post by David Wake » Mon Dec 10, 2018 9:33 am

I've just got my first proof back from KDP and there's a 'Not for Resale' banner across the cover. A little lower and it would have obscured an issue with the cover. Seems utterly unhelpful just to stop the scam of selling a book at cost.

Anyone else got an opinion?

Haven't ordered one from KDP yet but that sounds way over the top compared to CS proofs. Defeats the purpose somewhat to obscure the cover we are trying to proof as well as the inner stuff.

It happens on mine to be about the same colour palette as the cover, but I imagine on others it'll throw off the eye when trying to judge colours.

I used to complain regularly, Carthago Delenda Est style, to Createspace about printing proofs and author copies in a different continent. Maybe this is the thing to continue my Barking of Bournville reputation with KDP.
