Welcome to PaperLater
Today is an exciting day at Newspaper Club. We’re taking the wraps off our new service, PaperLater, and launching a public beta.
PaperLater lets you save the good stuff from around the web and enjoy it in a newspaper made just for you. When you find yourself on something you’d prefer to read in print, just press the ‘Save for PaperLater’ button in your browser, and we’ll do the rest.
When you’ve got enough articles, hit print and we’ll automatically layout, print and ship you a newspaper. It’ll be on your doorstep in a few days.
We’ve been testing PaperLater in private with 50 people for the last few months. It’s been a lot of fun, we’ve learnt a lot, and now we’re ready to let more people try it out. You can request an invitation from the home page, and we’ll send you an email when we’re ready for you. It’s only available in the UK for now, but if you’re in another country, please put your email down anyway and we’ll use that to help work out where to launch next.
From the webpage handling, to automated layout, to single copy printing and distribution, we’ve had to solve some tricky problems developing PaperLater. We’ll unpack some of those things in a series of blog posts over the next couple of weeks.
But now, it’s over to you. Sign up for an invitation — we’re looking forward to hearing what you think.
