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.
- Get yours a free account.
- Getting your publication ready for MagCloud is really easy with MagCloud’s step-by-step instructions for Publisher, available as a free PDF download.
- Next, upload the PDF using MagCloud’s web form.
- 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.
- If you need to make changes, you simply upload a new PDF, and a new proof will be created for you to approve.
- 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.
