For our June meeting Steve Locke and Amy Decker, from Consolidated Graphics --- Pacific Standard Print, in Sacramento, will provide a presentation on photography book publication by using Publish powered by Blurb.


This is a high-end approach to produce low volume (even 1) case bound books of the coffee table variety to present your photographic works or proof books, wedding books or even vacation presentations.


Publish provides a free Adobe InDesign Plug-in that allows users to retain complete creative control of book design, and take advantage of page layout templates among many other benefits.


They will go over how the process works and the sizes, paper stocks, types of cover materials, as well as binding methods.  There will also be a number of examples to view.


This presentation will provide you an easy way to become a self-publisher.


Steve Locke has been in the printing industry for over 40 years and has had his own video production company for 10 years doing weddings, plays and special events.  He helped found the California Videographers Assoc. and was President for over 2.5 years. He got into video because it showed instant results and he has now gone into digital still photography for much the same reason ---- instant gratification.


Amy Decker is the Regional Director of Technology --- she supports sales function in the area of Streamline, WorkSmart Suite, Publish as well as variable data and Storefronts.
