Book printing out of china.
Got a quote for a 100 page book (same paper as Blurb basic paper), hard cover, bound for $13, based on order quantity of 300. In quantities of $100, the cost is $33 per book.
And speaking ob making books, I’d be needing other software to design books other then blurbs Book Smart software.
Scribus is a free open source package. To insert folders full of images into the layout, read this.
Doing some number crunching, and even though the individual book cost is pretty cheap (at 300 pieces), at the end of the day the the offer is not that much more attractive then the cost that Blurb charges per book.
