Featured Review on this writing by sappy

We're excited to announce the release of Booksie Print, the easiest way to see your book in print. Upload your book to the site, press a button, provide your address, and a formatted copy of your book will be sent to your home address. Perfect for proof copies, gifts, or displaying on your coffee table.

 

Hi Booksians and guests,

We’re super-excited to announce the launch of Booksie Print. It’s a tool that is designed to take the hard task of creating a print copy of your book, and making it click-click easy. With Booksie Print, with one click of a button, we’ll take the content you’ve posted on Booksie, format it, add the relevant graphics, and create a print-ready file. We’ll then take that file, use our high-speed printers, and generate a bound ebook that we print and send to you. Below is an example of a Booksie Print book.

 

Format

  • 8x11 pages printed on both sides.
  • A plastic cover over the front page and back plastic cover to keep your writing safe.
  • Spiral binding.

Ideal For...

Now, maybe some of you are saying this doesn’t look like a traditional book. It doesn’t. We’ve simplified and standardized the book design to make the process easy. Booksie Print is ideal for creating:

  • Proof copies
  • Copies to share with your friends or family.
  • Gift copies
  • Copies to display around your house.
  • Over time, we’ll be improving the formatting and the appearance.

Doesn't Need to be Complete

Your book or story doesn't need to be complete in order to use Booksie Print. If you're halfway done with your book but want to print that out, no problem. 

The Cost

The cost for a Booksie Printed book is a flat fee of $2 per copy plus $.10 per page and $5 shipping and handling. So, a 50 page book would be $2 + $5 + $5 = $12.

The Process

The process is easy:

  • Publish your book, short story, poem, etc. to Booksie.
  • On your Portfolio page, click the More button and choose Booksie Print from the drop-down.
  • Approve the book, order your copies, and the book will be printed and sent to the address you provide.

It takes less than 5 minutes.

 

Formatting

Not all content posted on Booksie formats cleanly. If this is the case, contact us, and we’ll help you get there.

Availability

Booksie Print is a test program. As a result, we’ll only be shipping to addresses in the United States for now. If the program is successful, we’ll open it up to more countries.

Questions? Feel free to post them in the questions section below.

Thanks and let us know what you think.

 

Here is some of the great content printed via Booksie Print:

 

Confessions of a Teenage Princess

Unbreakable Love

 

Sinkal the Bakol

See your book in print!

What about India? Can't do shipping to India?
I guess then I have to wait.

Sounds Cool! But when will you do other countries like Australia?

Don't know yet. We need to see how it goes in the U.S. first. To be honest, there hasn't been a lot of demand.

Hi there - great idea.

Is it possible to create a book by adding all of the poetry I have written. I'd like a copy for myself and to leave for my family when I leave this mortal coil ...
thanks...........

When do you expect it will open to other countries? And is the Netherlands also included in those other countries? :)

I only have a few questions, Booksieguy. Regarding the formatting of the content on the inside, would it be possible to request manuscript formatting or is this just a straight formatting from the site itself( e-book formatting)? I'd love to see a sample of what the contents look like, is that possible? Also, I've seen sometimes where the site doesn't read the formatting quite like I'd like it to with different size text and stuff despite trying to make it uniform when I've edited and such, would that show up in the document during print?

This could be a viable manuscript service, if those issues are taken into consideration.

Do y'all print in art work that goes alongside the text?

Yes, although interior artwork is black and white.

Can you choose what type of binding you receive?

Nope. There is only one type, no customization. What you see is what you get.

Hi, is this program still going, and if so, is it available to those outside of the US?
