What is an ePublication?
An ePublication is an online or digital version of your publication. For those customers with an email list, a website, who use social media, or simply want other people to be able to access and view their publication from anywhere in the world, an ePublication is ideal. You will have the benefits of enjoying exposure to millions of users, a handy digital viewer that displays your publication in a flip style display, and the ability to embed the viewer and your ePublication in your website.
The process is done automatically through the ordering process. We do the uploading, deal with posting, manage it for you, and display a link for your ePublication right in your account. ePublications are a great way to disseminate your projects, news, stories, services, or products to as many people as possible in a truly professional format.
You can created up to 32 pages for each publication

Do I have to download anything to my computer to use your Cloud Newspaper Designer?
No. We do recommend that whatever browser you use that you consistently use that browser as using different browsers may shift some of the components from session to session.

What page sizes can I design with in your Cloud Designer?
There are many standard sizes available, but you have the option of creating a custom size to fit your needs.
Does your Cloud Designer have a page limit?
Yes. Currently, our Designer only supports up to 32 pages.
Things seemed to move when I loaded up my design. Why?
Most likely, you either used a different browser than the one you saved it in or you are using a different version of the same browser. Each browser renders their kerning (space between letters) for letters differently. This may cause some shift in the letters when you click on a text box. To avoid this, always use the same browser. It doesn't matter which one you use, so long as you use the same one.
PLEASE NOTE: Most of our templates were designed in Google Chrome. Loading them in a different browser may cause some of the text to shift when you first click on a text box. However, once you replace the text and save it, it will always come up the way you saved it as long as you continue to use the same browser.
Do you recommend a certain browser to use for your designer?
No. Most of our templates were designed in Google Chrome so there should be no shift in the kerning (space between letters) if you use Chrome. It doesn't matter which browser you use so long as you continue to use the same one throughout your project.
Is there a tutorial on how to use your designer?
Yes. When you open up the designer, there will be a "Designer Help" button on the left hand side of your screen.
Why can't I get your designer to show up? All I get is a blank screen.
Most likely you are using an old browser. Upgrade your browser and you should have no problems.
What is sharing and how do I use it?
Sharing allows you to provide a way for other people to view your project. They may make changes, but they will not be able to save it, so your work is secure. Simply click the "Share" button in the upper right and follow the instructions. If you need someone to approve a portion of your project or you just want to share your progress with a friend, the "share" option is a prefect way to do it.
Do I have to sign up for an account or subscription to use your services?
Our services are designed to allow you to also act as a manager of your print projects. To do that, we need to associate your projects with you, so you will need an account set up to save or upload pictures. You can play with the Designer for free by just signing up at no cost. You can print or create a PDF for $1.00. A subscription is required to create any ePublication. We do not use your account information except to occasionally send you information regarding a change or new features.
Do you charge to use either sign up for an account or use your Online Cloud Designer?
You can try it for free. However, in order to print, create a PDF, or publish, you will need to pay either a $1.00 per page or purchase a subscription.

How secure is my copyrighted or proprietary content?
