Help! Need to color my text containers
Tips and Tricks

Yes, you can do this, but not in Blurb. Create a colored image, say a large oblong box, in your photo editing software. Save it as a JPEG file. Import it to Blurb as a picture. Place it where you want it in your book, and then add text from Blurb over top.

Top Notch Product and service!!!
Book Printing

I agree. I just received my books today and they look GREAT!  I have several Blurb publications under my belt and I’ve never been disappointed. I’ll be sticking with Blurb!

Weekly Calendar
Book Design and Imaging

I, too, am looking for the same format calendar. I’ve searched all over the web, and even e-mailed calendar publishers. No luck. This would be a big success for Blurb if they would create a template for it and make it available for us. Are you listening, Blurb??

I need to find a "weekly planning calendar" printing format. Help.
Book Printing

I’ve had Blurb print several books for me and I’m very happy with the quality. Now, I need a different format. I want a calendar-style book, spiral bound. I want to have a photo on the left page and a week’s calendar on the right. This is a planning style calendar (as opposed to a wall or desk type design). Does anyone know a publisher who offers this format. If Blurb carried this design, it would be an instant success, because I can’t find anyone on the web who offers it.
