A better way to tell your story!
The Printery and Consolidated Graphics have teamed up with Blurb to offer Publish, a new solution in the WorkSmart Suite™ that allows individuals and businesses to create and print high-quality, smaller print-run publications from a single workflow.
Why don't you write a book about it?
Everyone's got something to say; it doesn't have to be the "Great American Novel," it can be as simple as your latest sales presentation, or a collection of product photography, or just scans of 4th grade art masterpieces. Now it's possible to print your books with a quantity as low as... one.
Publish is aimed at the people who are content creators, such as designers, marketers, advertisers, writers, photographers, or really – anyone who generates content that people read. Publish is a plugin for Apple Macintosh and optimized for Adobe InDesign that allows you to design your own book around a variety of Blurb products. You can have hardcover, softcover, perfect bound, stitched... there are many options, from 8 pages to 400 pages. Once the Publish plugin generates your template, you can create any content that you like. Photos, drawings, illustrations, logos, reams of text, clip art, scans – anything can be placed into the layout. Click here for some ideas.
Giving them the Business
Publish shines when used for business. Do you need something special like a hardcover book for your next annual report? How about presenting a case-bound folio for your latest portfolio review? Or a full image-wrapped volume celebrating your company's 25th anniversary in business? When the occasion calls for a high-end printed piece, hardcover books have extremely high inherent perceived value; they are kept, shown to others and referred to more often.
Show Your Work
Blurb stores your book and you can order as many copies as you want, now or in the future. Even more interesting, if you think your book might have a wider appeal, you can make it available to purchase directly on Blurb’s site, and other people can purchase your book, while you get a nifty kickback. This is called self-publishing, or vanity publishing, and this is valuable to anyone that needs a book, but doesn't want to pay for a book run of 25,000 or have to deal with a traditional publisher.
