I’d heard of this 4IP-funded project before but was reminded of it yesterday by David Rowan of UK Wired. It’s a lovely thing:
“We’re planning on launching early next year when we’ll offer a basic product of a 12-page, tabloid-size newspaper in black and white or colour in quantities from 5 to 5000.
“If you’re experienced with design software you’ll be able to upload a PDF to us and we’ll sort out printing and delivery. Or, if you need a bit more help, we’ll have a tool where you can upload your own text and pictures and we’ll help you lay it out on the page so it looks lovely. Then you can get it printed etc.
“Or, if you want the full bespoke service, we’ll make you a whole newspaper; including finding writers and artists, organising design and all the printing and everything else.”
My mind is a-buzz with ideas for newspaper-like publications – can’t wait to try it…
