Boek – that’s book in Dutch. Why do we know that? Because Blurb is launching in Europe and we’ll be printing, binding, and shipping books out of a central location in the Netherlands. What does this mean if you live in the UK or Europe? Three words: Less expensive shipping.
Starting in mid July, we’ll also introduce several new Web features designed specifically for the European market. Customers will be able to view Blurb books in metric dimensions, and view prices and make purchases in local European currencies.
We’d shout this from the top of the Eiffel Tower if we could. Actually, Eileen might be doing this right now, since she’s currently in Europe spreading the news. We expect postcards from London, Berlin, Paris, Madrid, and Milan.
In addition to offering reduced international, expedited shipping fees, we’re shipping to 18 new countries:
Sveiki, Latvia. Bom dia, Portugal. We can’t wait to ship books to all of the countries on this list.
