Photobook Transfer Program

Status: Filed
by moroccanwoman on ‎09-24-2011 10:40 AM

Very simply, I created a Photobook in another online company.  Lo and behold people wanted to purchase the book.  Frankly, I could not 1) bring myself to have people pay what would have been the asking price, 2) pay the out of pocket cost to buy the twenty hardcover, 20 page photobooks.

I searched for another company, I found I was able to reproduce the book with 99% accuracy because the templates,colors,and themes were there and ajdustable -  but it also suffered from the same publishing issue - none. 

Then I found Lulu !!! I was excited !  The publishing features I was looking for but sadly, the photobook creation site was limited, very limited.

So it would be great to create my book in one venue and transfer the book to a publishing venue ( read Lulu).  Of course there would be a transfer fee ( nothing in life is free) but I would pay because it would beat having (2) photobooks with (2) companies but can't publish them; and (1) photobook that can be published but no one would buy.

 

Just a thought

Hi there, thanks for the suggestion. I think at this point, we're more focused on improving our own products, rather than building in functionality to support other solutions. I hope you enjoy our website and best of luck!

Thank you Ken but the Photobook transfer Program is a new idea or so I thought.  I felt I had to state why I thought it was a new idea but I will copy and paste it there as you suggest.

 

Thanks..MW
