aPrintis's Adobe extension helps make print publishing a truly community experience by enabling content collaboration, fund raising and stunning print at wholesale prices

aPrintis is the home of small community print journalism. aPrintis makes it affordable for small communities such as schools, churches, non-profits, senior centers, clubs/orgs, city publishers and SMBs to publish stunning magazines/newsletters that truly represent their community.

The Adobe InDesign graphics designer can look at the aPrintis Adobe Extension as a single point of communication with their client (publisher), fellow editorial staff and entire community. Invited patrons from the community can contribute to the publication by sending in pictures, articles, opinions etc.
Additionally, editorial staff can promote magazine previews to the community and raise financing for it through community sponsorships, subscriptions or advertising with a GoFundMe-like capability inside the platform - thus alleviating sole reliance on advertising to support the publication.

The aPrintis Adobe Extension 1.0 helps make print publishing a truly community experience by connecting the designer to the larger community by enabling content collaboration, fund raising and premium print at wholesale prices. The key features available in Release 1.0 to the Adobe InDesign user are:

1. Community Collaboration: invited patrons from the community can contribute to the publication by sending in pictures, articles, opinions etc.

2. Three ways of fund raising: editorial staff can raise financing for the publication through community sponsorships, subscriptions or advertising with a GoFundMe-like capability inside the platform - thus alleviating sole reliance on advertising to support the publication

3. Wholesale pricing for high quality magazine/newsletter publications: the cost of printing a 32-page full color, 70# glossy or matte magazine/newsletter is ~$1 per copy for an order size of 1000 - making premium quality print accessible to the smallest of communities.

4. Editorial staff collaboration - editorial staff can communicate and collaborate with each other and track all communication so that no balls are dropped.

5. Promotion/Previews to Community - editorial staff can promote publication previews to the community to rev up interest even before the print arrives, driving up sponsorship and subscriptions

Small communities such as schools, colleges, churches, non-profits, senior centers, clubs/orgs, city publishers and SMBs benefit the most from this solution. And even the graphics designer can benefit directly through referral income for every issue published by their client, in addition to helping their client save substantially on cost.
