Blurb it

Have you heard of Blurb yet? I think everyone should know about Blurb. And not only because I like to say “Blurb”. lol!

I have heard of Blurb a while ago now, and wanted to talk to you about it once I had my own “blurbish” project in mind. But since I have no clue yet, I figured everyone would be better off just knowing about Blurb right away.

First of all, because even talking about the product, I love love love their identity, logo and complete branding. The website is attention grabbing yet does not scream, the actual color scheme is perfect but still leaves place for new ones in the future. Everything is right at it’s place and the navigation goes by easily!

Now, the product. Ever dreamed of making you own professional looking cookbook, portfolio, photo book, poetry or wedding book? Well, it’s possible, even at affordable prices! Hardcover or softcover are available, starting at 20 pages. Download the free bookmaking software (PC & Mac), gather your info and you are ready to go! You even CAN order just one book if you’d like!

If you just like buying book, head down to the Bookstore! There you’ll find hundreds of books made from people like you and me who just had a dream! You can sample preview them before purchasing, which will confirm your move!

One book I am dying to buy is Etsy seller LushBella‘s Blurb book, I Spy. It just looks like the perfect coffee table book, and I love Kerry’s photography work!

So now, you know all the basics of Blurb. What do you think? Do you have a Blurb book? Do you want to make one? What’s your project?

I still have to find my idea, but I will, eventually…

  1. this “i spy” piece is sooo lovely!

  2. Looks so cool right!? :)

  3. Wow what a great product and a minimum order of one book? Unheard of!! Thanks for the info – I have often thought of making a customized book to give as a gift and this may be the solution.

  4. I’m so glad you now know about Blurb, Rachael!! YAY! :P

  5. I’ve made a book out of my blog, but I used Lulu.com instead of Blurb though I think they are kind of similar. I have 1000 ideas for books I want to do, but it does take a lot of time. :-)

  6. j’ai utilisé ce service pour me faire un petit book de mes jobs print/branding. Le résultat est quand même pas si pire. J’ai ensuite apporté les livres chez mon estampeur pour y ajouter mon logo. Cool web 2.0 app!

    nice blog by the way!

  7. Hanna – Oh! I didn’t know about Lulu.com! They do look very similar. Thanks for the info :)

    Philippe – Wow! Tu suis mon blogue! Je ne savais vraiment pas! ihih :) C’est récent ou…?
    Oui j’ai vu ton book, sur Grafika, je crois? Ou peut-être directement sur ton site, je ne sais plus! La petite touche extra de l’estampe fait toute la différence, superbe! :)

  8. Nice writeup. I just received my book from blurb and was very pleased with the outcome. The size and quality makes a blurb book a smart buy, I’m certain I will be using blurb in the future.

    13″x11″ hardback for < $100 is great, and the blurb software provides a large number of layout options and customization so you can get your book just the way you want it.

    Have a look here, I was able to highlight some of the small printing mistakes made as well as the overall awesome quality:

  9. Very great highlights (and book)!! I’m not much of a black background gal when I do graphic design, so that turns out to be to my advantage if I make a book! Very good to know. hehe! Thanks so much :)
