Designing and self-publishing books for clients and our portfolio using the ubyu service.

ubyu is the advanced online service for anyone wishing to create and publish their own high quality books. Specialist offers include headbands, ribbons, end papers, foiling and de-bossing.

Unfortunately ubyu books could not compete with the likes of Blurb on a funding level, and the originators of the service, Moore Print, have withdrawn the online service after being sold to DG3.
