According to Nook Press Print: "Users can pick from a variety of materials and formats, including hardcover and softcover books, in a number of different sizes. Authors can get their texts published in full color or black and white, and select different paper materials."
Back when I was researching the best self-publishing platform to go with, I had seriously considered Lightning Source. Unfortunately, there was a setup fee, something around $300. Ouch! CreateSpace just seemed so much simpler. No setup fee. Easy upload. And it looked to be an all around user-friendly platform.
If I could do it all over again, I would probably go with Lightning Source because their platform is more appealing to bookstores (mostly due to their return policy). And self-publishing more than one novel (which I intended to), the one-time setup fee would have become nominal in the long-run.
Back to Nook Press Print: it appears that they won't be a division of B&N for much longer as they have plans for branching off into their own company.
This announcement of Nook Press Print comes at an interesting time with it being NaNoWriMo!
