Just got my first copies of my 5th book done through Blurb. Very pleased. This is the first book I have done in the 5X8 B&W format. My books are text and balck and white line drwaing cartoons, no photos to speak of, so this product is ideal for my books. These books were done by the printer in MA and were crisp, clean and very saleable. I have not had any of the challenges I have heard of from others here.
For my purposes I would love to see a small book, like, say, paperback only in 4 1/2 high X 6 1/2 wide. I could sell a boat load like that.
I must comment...
Ordering and Shipping
I had an experience I must share. A "customer" of mine bought one of my books. There was a problem with the transaction. He emailed me. I told him to contact Blurb and that in my experience they were very good, fast, and sincere in their customer service. WOW! The Blurb team took care of him in stunning fashion. Fast, friendly, express mailed a corrected book literally overnight. He was very happy, very fast. I am even happier. It is great to have reaffirmed that the Blurb team is behind me. A great "business partner".
Thank you to the entire Blurb team!
You guys rock!!!!
I just got my book in the mail.
The software was fun and easy to use. The quality was superb. The repro of my images was better than the images themselves. The materials are first rate.
I have my second project in the works and will be moving on it late this year after I get some volume going on my first title.
Thank you so much.
P.S. I learned of you guys from a 1 page article in either Time or Newsweek… or I would not have found you. I was frustrated trying to find a printer/publisher for my project, that, while it is a specialty item DOES have a potentially large audience within my industry. it will be exciting to see how I can steer the industry to and through the Blurb site and to purchase my book.
