If your holiday funds are a little on the lighter side this year, why not invest a little more human capital to create something truly personal that will last a lifetime? A Blurb book is a fantastic gift that won't break the bank but looks and feels like it should have. If you've already started a book but have been procrastinating, don't worry, there's still plenty of time to finish your book and get it shipped in time for the holidays.  Blurb is also offering free shipping on orders before Dec. 5th so get creating already!

Promotion code: freeshipping

So finish up those books up and get your orders in before midnight on December 5. If you still need more time, that's cool, but keep the following deadlines in mind in order to receive your books by December 24.

If you're in the Continental U.S.:

  • December 9 is the last day for Ground shipping
  • December 12 is the last day for 2nd Day Air
  • December 15 is the last day for Next Day Air – and your last chance to ensure your book makes it in time for the holiday festivities

If you're outside the Continental U.S., your complete global delivery deadlines are here.

Not sure you'll meet any of the deadlines? We know how crazy this month is, and you can always give the gift of Blurb by picking up one of our gift cards here.

Not familiar with Blurb.com?

Blurb.com allows you to create customized “bookstore quality” books.. just like Lulu.com but a lot better.

  • Commercial-quality— Books feature 4-color printing on 80# coated, matte standard, or 100# silk-finish Premium Paper.
  • Flexibility— Books can be from 20 to 440 pages using our standard paper, or from 20 to 160 pages using Premium Paper.
  • Affordable— Prices start at just $12.95. Order one or many.
  • Fast Turnaround— Once uploaded and ordered, your book will arrive in approximately 7 to 10 business days.

I'm thinking of using Blurb to create a few books myself.  I think its an awesome way to display your artwork or photos and it also makes a great customized gift.  Last year I produced a book using Lulu.com for xmas and it came out great.  My wife and family really liked it. Here's what it looked like.  Se Brita stands for See Brita in Norwegian.
