Hewlett Packard's "MagCloud" is a cloud publishing site, for any on-demand publishing scenario.

Microsoft and HP have partnered to make using Publisher with MagCloud an easy solution for publishing catalogs, magazines, newsletters, or even yearbooks. Here's a basic overview of how Publisher and MagCloud work together.

  1. Get yours a free account.
  2. Getting your publication ready for MagCloud is really easy with MagCloud's step-by-step instructions for Publisher, available as a free PDF download.
  3. Next, upload the PDF using MagCloud's web form.
  4. MagCloud then prints a proof of your publication, including the binding, and mails the proof to you for approval. This proof can take up to 2 weeks to arrive.
  5. If you need to make changes, you simply upload a new PDF, and a new proof will be created for you to approve.
  6. Once your proof finalizes, you mark the publication as "published" and set prices for the digital and print versions. MagCloud charges 70% of the digital price and 20 cents per page for the printed version.

Here's a coupon for you to save 25% on your first MagCloud publication. This coupon code is good through the end of 2011: MSPUBLISHER11
