Blurb 5×8 Format Books

April 30, 2009

Okay, a DP I am not, so still learning this little device, but wanted to post and see what happens. These 5×8 books are fantastic, and have been well received at every event I have done. They are a blast to make and cheap to produce.

Watching myself on this I have a feeling of horror, and a small dose of Mr. Rodgers. Hopefully I will get over this. Otherwise, I’ll be looking for a stand in.

    Daniel, I don’t think you need a stand in, what you do need is more light 🙂

    Thanks for the tip on the 5×8’s; I was unaware of them, and you are right that they’re a good idea. Ill check them out right now.

    Yes, keep your images in sRGB color space. The machines used to print these books work in sRGB color!
    Good luck, have fun!
