Print Runs

Turn Your Digital Photos Into An Analog Magazine
Print may be dying, but you probably harbor a secret dream of seeing yourself on the cover of a glossy magazine.

Now you can, thanks to Photozini, a service that allows you to turn your digital photos into a printed magazine.

Start by ordering a kit through Photozini’s website (they cost $40). In a few days, you’ll receive a box with a 512MB USB card, instructions and a prepaid return envelope.

Simply load the photos you want to use onto the USB card (you can load up to 150 images), and then mail it back.

You don’t have to worry about ordering the photos or laying them out—Photozini will do that, using the time stamp data from the image (If you don’t like the results, you can return it within 30 days for a full refund).

Three weeks later you’ll receive a soft-cover magazine featuring your friends and family, printed on 100 lb glossy stock (thicker than the average magazine).

If someone else wants a copy, simply give them the copy code on back cover of the magazine. Reprints cost $20.

It may not be as big a deal as landing the cover of Vogue or GQ, but it’s a better Father’s Day gift than that tie you were going to select.
