How MagCloud works
Invented by HP Labs, HP’s central research facility, MagCloud takes on the heavy lifting for content publishers by providing automated ordering, print management and distribution services all free of charge. Whether ordering one or 1,000 copies, there are no upfront costs or minimum orders and MagCloud will distribute publications all over the world in print and digital format.
With HP MagCloud, users can publish a consumer magazine, business portfolio, company brochure, customer newsletter, product catalog or any document that serves their needs. MagCloud will take their publication from PDF to printed magazine format or digital download with just a few clicks of the mouse. All content is printed to order using HP Indigo technology, delivering professional print quality with no waste or over-runs, while reducing the impact on the environment.
HP MagCloud also operates like a web-based marketplace where traditional media companies, upstart magazine publishers, students, photographers, designers, businesses and bloggers can affordably turn their targeted content into print and digital magazine formats.
Users can browse the MagCloud magazine racks, order the latest issue of their favorite magazines and have it printed on demand and delivered directly to their mailbox or downloaded to be read on their digital device of choice.
