Postage - who wants an option to send books via the local postal service
having prepared a 30 page 10×8 book back in march, I held off ordering it because of the ridiculous shipping charge, but when Blurb announced reduced charges and printing in Europe, I checked again and got a copy sent for $17 (£8.50). Still a bit much but OK.
I need to do another book and checked the shipping charges again before compiling. My original book now seems to cost the same $70 (£35) as before. Pathetic…..
I really like the product, but while Blurb sit around charging these extortionate shipping rates, other book printers will get my business.
