New type of Image Wrap?
Book Printing

I just received my latest Image Wrap book, and while the actual quality has improved a great deal since my last book (about a year ago) ie no bubbles, the colours are very disappointing on the cover. There is a very pronounced red cast. The colour quality on the pages of the book itself are very very good and I am extremely happy with it. Its just the cover :-(  I’m not sure whether my client is going to accept it, they are really quite fussy and I’ve had to have a whole lot of prints redone.

Well 48 books later and almost a year on . Yes for me Blurb works smarter!
General Interest

I started using Blurb more recently, to provide Wedding Albums to clients. I love it as it is reasonably priced and produces good quality photo reproductions.  My clients love it too!

However, as soon as I got the hang of BookSmart I thought to myself – "How about that story I wrote in ‘95 that was rejected by the publishers…"  And got VERY busy putting it together. I have to say this has been a thrilling experience, publishing my funny little story, complete with pictures by my mum (she turns 80 next month). When I went through the final proof before pushing the button to send it uphill to Blurb – I shed a tear I was so excited!  I received the 20 copies 2 days ago, 1 image wrap, 2 dustjackets and the rest softcover. (I have sold 7 copies already.)   We’re going to have a book signing at my mum’s 80th birthday.  This is awesome stuff! A revolution no less.
