A while back when discussing E-sketchbooks, I mentioned that once I had finished one and was done with it, I could print it out. At the time, what I envisioned was printing it out from within my software so that it would be kind of like a newsletter format, then taking it to a printer’s to have it spiral-bound.
One issue is that I do not have a color printer. My husband does, but he doesn’t have the software. The software being by Microsoft probably will not load on his computer. The only other alternative would be to network our printers.
A couple of years ago, a professional computer guru did just that for us when he came to our home to deal with some more important computer issues. It was nice for both of us. He could print black-and-white and I could print color.
But then it stopped working.
But then I discovered a particular concept of self-publishing, thanks to a piece in the Wall Street Journal (August 6, 2009). The Journal had written an article on having one’s own cookbook put out in a form comparable to a published cookbook. Not to sell. Just to have a copy for one’s self, maybe a couple more for friends and family.
On my own, I also found Lulu. But this site seems geared more to persons wanting to sell their product.
