We're also excited to launch Publications! Multi-page printing and binding capabilities help you create magazines, catalogs, booklets, and newspapers to bring your content offline.

We've found a lot of inspiration from Lumi users designing publications to provide product information, share new products, or just engage folks in their community.

Options span the gamut from full color digital printing, or with lithography for more accurate Pantone color-matching. From newsprint to glossy cover stock, the paper options are nearly endless.
