The web-based service which allows anyone to print their own newspaper is drawing recognition and winning awards even before its official launch, the Guardian reports. The company helps people make their own newspapers by turning digital files into print products. The project, still in the beta-testing phase, allows users to design and print their own 12-page tabloid newspaper. The Club sends its orders in weekly batches for printing during the idle time on presses around the country.
Russell Davies, who runs the Club, said they avoid daunting printing processes and make money by printing as few as 5 copies or as many as 5,000. He added the idea for the new business emerged from an experiment to combine the web and print medium as an alternative to traditional printing.
