Blipfoto Books: Publish your life
14th November 2011
If there's one thing that the Blipfoto community has always been asking for, it's a way to publish your journal in print.
Now, after months of development, we are ready - and quite excited - to announce the launch of Blipfoto Books.
We've been working hard to find the right partners to help bring your images and stories to life. And we've spent months developing the best system to help you to easily shape your images and text into stylish hardback books, peerless lay-flat albums and simple wall calendars with your own, personal images and words - allowing you to share your stories even further.
Blipfoto Books allow everyone on Blip to print their pictures and stories in a stylish but hassle free format, without downloading any additional software. Each is printed on a high quality Kodak digital press, and hand finished with an embossed hard cover and personalised, wrap-around dust jacket.
And anyone can now publish their lives - from those with just a handful of Blips to others with years of pictures and stories.
As well as looking amazing, unlike many other personalised photo books and albums on the market, you've already put the effort in by uploading all your photos and text. So, the Blip boffins have created the most easy-to-use system to allow you to seamlessly transfer your pictures from your online Blipfoto journal to your printed album.
And to allow you to show off your pictures in the simple yet elegant style that you've grown accustomed to on Blipfoto, we've created a number of different templates to help you in your layout. Use just your pictures or your pictures and journal entries (or just use your text). Even add new text to accompany your pictures. It's up to you.
To find out more about how to create a Blip Book and see just how simple it is, watch this short video and let Our Dear Leader guide you through the process.
We're offering a number of print formats. From unique "lay-flat" printed albums - using double weight, custom-made papers; to flexible format, hardback photo books, lovingly hand-finished by our printer.
We're also offering The Big 365 Book - the best way to capture a year of your life in print, with one picture from each day of your year on each page.
We've had so much interest in the books, to ensure that our printers are ready for the orders, we've asked them to "stop the press". Until 1st December, anyway.
In short, all orders wanted in time for Christmas must be placed by 1st December. But to ensure that this is met, prior to Christmas we won't be able to guarantee delivery before mid December.
So, have a look at Blip Books now. Have a play, see how easy it is. Of course, there is no obligation to buy until you're completely happy with your book.
We hope that you enjoy this.
We told you that you had a book in you!
