DP Digital Produces Books for the Vatican!

December 9, 2015

Recently, during his visit to Philadelphia, Pope Francis received and blessed a new partnership initiative between Biblica and Ramon Pane Foundation that has produced a special New Testament edition of Biblica’s Books of The Bible. The new volume designed to serve Catholic families around the world is called Books of the Bible Lectio Divina for Families - New Testament and is available in five languages, initially.

Biblica’s unique Community Bible Experience offers a fresh format of the Bible along with suggestions on how to read together in community. Void of chapters, verses and cross-references, the Books of the Bible edition presents Scripture in a format that reads more like a story and less like a reference book. Paired with Ramon Pane’s Lectio Divina material, families are invited to read the New Testament together and the results are already proving to be powerful. In an early test in Mexico City, 800 families testified to how meaningful it was to read the Bible together with this special New Testament. The reading is easy to understand and the family conversations were engaging as they immersed themselves in Scripture together.  

The Books of the Bible Lectio Divina for Families – New Testament was proudly printed by DP Digital Books. We are honored to have been part of this historic event and truly value our relationship and partnership with Biblica.

Another satisifed customer

July 30, 2015

We have had a great experience with DP Digital Books.  The cost is very reasonable, the turnaround time is fast, and we can order one copy or a thousand—eliminating the necessity of a large up-front investment and storage issues.  For example, a medium sized 170-page paperback with a beautiful glossy or matte cover costs approximately $3—even if you want only one copy, and it ships within three days.

Their customer service representative has helped me immensely. If you have questions about any part of the process—from setting up an account to ordering copies of the book, he is always happy to assist.

Book Setup and Saved Books explained

February 12, 2015

What is the difference between an editable book and a saved book?

Dickinson Press has two different book tabs in the print application. It is easy to confuse the two, but there are important reasons why they are there. The first tab, BOOK SETUP, is where all new books are setup for the first time. It is simple to use this tool. Use the "New Book" button to add your new title. Once you click that button, you will see a "No Title Set" title appear in your list. Click on that title to highlight it, and then click "Edit" which will take you to the make-ready template and uploading tool. When you have loaded your new files the first time, you DO NOT have to press SAVE. Your files automatically save in the system each time you make changes. We will talk about the SAVE button later.

If you need to edit your files in the future by uploading a new body or cover file, this is where you do this. All new files will overwrite the old files in the system. When you are satisfied that the cover and body files are fitting in the template the way you want them, we recommend printing a single copy of your book (PRINT PROOF). Simply click the title you want to print, highlight it, and click "Print Proof" and follow the shopping cart directions.

Once you are satisfied that the first copy that you print is correct, highlight the title, and click "Save". This places your approved files in the SAVED BOOKStab. The SAVED BOOKS tab is where you keep your final printing files. If you have more than one file with the same name, delete the older versions so that you do not accidentally print them. If you want more than one version of the same book in the SAVED BOOKS tab, simply give them different names or versions to keep them separate. If you go back and make changes to files in the BOOK SETUP tab, make sure to save your book again so that it appears in the SAVED BOOKS tab.
