Re: [BKARTS] self-publishing via web sites



Hi Ellen.

There is a difference in the different on-demand publishers. The difference
is what print engine they use. In general Blurb is better for images, they
use HP Indigo as their print technology. They print out of California. Lulu,
in general, is better for mostly text stuff, though their image work can be
very good too. They use the Xerox iGen print engine technology. Their
production facility is in Rochester, NY.

As someone suggested, send the same book to both and see which you prefer.
