How to Create a Color Print Book from pre-existing hard copy w/ text, photos & collage affordabl
Hi, I have a hard copy book (11x17'') (w/photos/collage/illustration as well as text) that i'd like to turn into an 8.5 x 11" full color paper back , probably with the saddle stitch binding, around 35-40 pages long. It exists only as a hard copy - what's the best way to convert this so Lulu can print it? I imagine taking a photo of each pag and turning it into a pdf and then putting the pdf's together into one document?
I have no experience doing this sort of thing. I'd like to spend no more than $10 per book. The other alternative would be just to photocopy it and make it myself - but color photocopies make this more expensive, and so I might just do it b&w, or mostly b&w. to save costs. the book is an accompaniment to a music CD I completed, and is a kickstarter gift that I owe, and I'd like to sell a few more on the side.
Any of you with experience with this sort of thing, thanks for your support!
