Details, Details.

So now that my book is nearly done, I need to start looking at the specific details for when I get it printed. For instance, there are two different paper stocks I can use: the 80-lb. matte-finish "traditional" paper, or the 100-lb. silk-finish premium stuff.

Personally, I'm leaning towards the premium, because it'll look and feel better, and it only adds about three bucks to the price of a single book. It is 35% heavier, though, so I'm assuming shipping costs will be higher.

Thoughts and opinions?

It is an art book Bret.
In something such as this quality is of great importance.
You will know when you touch it.

I'd agree...shipping costs can always be slightly inflated to offset the cost...

The shipping costs are actually determined by Blurb, since they do all the printing/shipping/etc.

But yeah - the better paper is a must. Now I just need to get this last picture finished...
