Boutique personalized book publisher Blurb has launched a sister brand, MdBy, featuring “a curated collection of customizable photo albums and framed prints for memory-keeping and gift-giving, built for those big moments (and every day in between).”

The announcement said the MdBy development was at the request of Blurb users who wanted a simple web-based bookmaking tool that anyone can use to craft a book, plus more album choices, recycled materials, foil finishes and art prints.

MdBy is distiniguished by:

  • An easy online editing tool with clean and modern templates
  • Visionary editorial printed fabrics and matte, full-image wraps with foil
  • 100% recycled printed pages with premium vibrancy and accuracy
  • Gallery-quality wall art and artwork with handcrafted frames and sustainable canvas.

“Fabric and foil, two of my longstanding Blurb wishlist items, have been answered,” says Dan Milnor, Blurb evangelist, in a blog post. “The quality and attention to detail with my first MdBy photo book are more than I expected. With innovation comes adventure.”

“MdBy is an important evolution for Blurb,” says Stephanie Peterson, vice president of marketing at Blurb. “It allows us to serve more creators in more ways and reinforces our commitment to expanding and innovating for self-publishers. But we aren’t stopping with MdBy. We’re hard at work developing new book types, BookWright features, and content for our creators.”
