Blurb Press Release
Blurb’s Notebooks help you turn your everyday note pad, journal or sketchbook into something beautiful, personal and unique
London, UK - August 10, 2011 - Blurb, the global creative publishing platform today announced the launch of a new book type offering, the Notebook, to help customers easily create one-of-a-kind personalised journals.
People can now create customised notebooks or journals, containing images and text that inspire throughout the day whether they feature photos of family, travels or favourite artwork. Each customised notebook has all the high quality elements of a Blurb book: durable binding, high quality print and great design.
The Notebook includes a variety of templates including lined, grid and blank pages and uncoated white paper which is excellent for notes and sketches and even resists pen smudges. Every sixth page of the design includes an image container where customers can drag and drop their own photos from Flickr, Picassa, Smugmug, Photobucket or their own computer. The end result is a book that reminds its owner of the things, people or places they love every time it’s used.
“Notebooks are where good ideas begin. Your notebook or journal should not only inspire you but also make an impression on others. These little books make perfect gifts and excellent marketing giveaways for businesses and creative professionals.” said Eileen Gittins, CEO and Founder of Blurb.
Blurb custom Notebooks are available as part of the latest version of the company’s free bookmaking tool, BookSmart and can also be created using Blurb’s plug-in for InDesign and the PDF to Book workflow.
