"It used to be that businesses required a big budget, lots of lead time and a need for thousands of units before they could produce a high-end print piece," said Eileen Gittins, founder and CEO of Blurb. "Now, with Publish, creative professionals can design and print rich publications with amazing production values in runs as small as one unit – and get them turned around in about a week." Gittins continued, "Although we have been working closely with businesses for years, taking this capability to scale with Consolidated Graphics is a big deal; we believe this new flexibility will result in an explosion of new and remarkably creative print publications."
Publish powered by Blurb will be available exclusively through Consolidated Graphics in the U.S as the newest addition to WorkSmart Suite™, a platform of technology solutions for customers to grow sales, reduce costs and give savvy marketers an edge.
