For all Scribd documents enabled for printing, users can now choose to print commercial-
quality, four-color hard and soft cover works with no minimum requirements or upfront
costs -- and directly from the convenience of their home or office. Printed and bound
copies are shipped directly to the consumer from the selected partner. Because of the
breadth of available content on the site, Scribd will offer print options based on document
types and other criteria: HP's MagCloud offers self-publishers the ability to print in a
magazine format; Blurb makes it easy to print affordable, professional-quality books;
and, Mimeo provides overnight document printing.

“The future of publishing leverages the web to bring consumers and content creators
together in new and more meaningful ways,” said Andrew Bolwell, director, New
Business Initiatives, HP. “HP’s MagCloud print-on-demand platform enables the Scribd
community to bring their unique content to life in a glossy magazine format that is both
cost-effective and environmentally friendly.”

“Turning Scribd documents into book form will elevate the impact and importance of the
content itself,” said Eileen Gittins, Founder and CEO of Blurb. “Books have a valuable
and extremely long shelf life. We are pleased to bring Blurb’s creative printing solution
to the Scribd community, enabling users to Bookify™ their documents into affordable,
professional quality books.”



Scribd’s community has uploaded and shared tens of millions of free and for-purchase
written documents, including business papers, research reports, graduate theses, legal
filings, creative writing, books, newspapers and more. For more information about Scribd
