Blurb.com is a website which promises to give their users everything they need to take control of their printing needs, whether it is a personalized photo book, self published book, or even eBooks.
With the growth in digital photographs and e-readers, there has also been a growth in websites that gives the average person the ability to create these types of products themselves, with no need for a professional printer or publisher, sites like Lulu, Mixbook, and Shutterfly.
Blurb offers many different advanced tools to help you create your project in the most professional way possible. For photo books, they offer Bookify, the section of their website which is dedicated to helping their customers create the highest quality personal photobooks.
The website also offers Booksmart, which is the section of their website dedicated to helping writers upload, format, and self publish books. Today’s internet capabilities and accessible technology have made the concept of self published books extremely popular.
When you have finished formatting and designing your project, you are ready to publish. Self publishing generally relies on print-on-demand, which means that your book will only exist digitally until it is ordered – at that time the book will be printed and shipped.
Unlike many other self publishing websites, which generally only offer print on demand, they do offer the option of large volume printing, though this is often a more expensive route. Customers who are interested in self publishing and are curious about pricing must consult Blurb.com directly.
This website also has the technology available to let users transfer their books into the proper format to allow them to be downloaded onto e-readers, so that they may have access to the whole book market.
There are third party sources that offer coupon and promo codes for Blurb, but these will generally be applicable to their photo projects.
