what about 8x8 and 12x12
Book Design and Imaging

I am a photographer, not a scrapbooker——and I very much agree. Square albums would allow me to to create digital pages in Photoshop etc, in the largest size, then easily resize to a smaller pages to sell smaller/less expensive books—that perfectly fit, identically square format. Square albums have been popular among high end wedding album mfrs (especially for digitally created albums) for years. If we had 12×12 (I could be talked into 10×10 with lower cost) and a smaller size, 6×6 or 7×7 or 8×8, those 2 sizes would get 100% of my business.

Re size my book
Book Design and Imaging

My input for Blurb—Offer square books. The templates would allow use of multiple photos per page, plus full bleed. Then we could create 300 dpi files for the largest book, and easily automate the the resizing of files for the smaller ones. How about 12×12, 10×10, 8×8? Square is a very popular option with the expensive album providers for wedding photogs…....

how to reverse decision on "Custom Logo"
Book Design and Imaging

I will answer my own question, for the benefit of others who might see this post. All you do is go to the last page at end of the book, left click where the logo would appear, and a popup menu will appear. Simply select "Revert Logo" and you will get a message asking you to confirm that you have changed your mind and DO want the blurb logo to appear. Select "Yes" and you will get a message saying that the charge for Custom Logo Upgrade will no longer apply. Good answer!

poor binding / white lines down centre
Book Printing

Same here..until further notice of a solution, I am trying to avoid having back-to-back black backgrounds. If at least one page has a white background, the exposed/loose stitch area is not so glaring. But we needs a solution to the root cause, not a band-aid…Ed

how to reverse decision on "Custom Logo"
Book Design and Imaging

When I first began to design my latest book in Booksmart, I selected the option to delete the Blurb logo, opting to pay extra for "Custom Logo."

 

I have now completed the book and am ready to upload—but I have changed my mind and do NOT want this option. I am not using the copyright page so there is no Blurb logo in the front of the book. I have decided I DO want the Blurb logo in the back. What do I do prior to upload to be sure I am NOT getting or paying for the custom logo option?

thanks folks,

Ed

How Do Coupons Affect "Set Your Price"/Profit?
Web Features

Suppose my cost for the book is $50 and set a resale price of $70. Then the buyer uses a coupon to buy the book at a discount, ie, $60. Does the $10 discount reduce my profit, or does my profit unaffected by the coupon?

Thx for clarifying,

Ed
