What do you get when you combine everyone’s favorite drawing app for the iPad with everyone’s favorite paper journal? You get an awesome partnership with Paper by FiftyThree and Moleskine.
FiftyThree and Moleskine have created an easy way to take a digital creation and make it a frozen moment in time. The Paper app can now send drawings to Moleskine and have them beautifully printed and shipped in a custom book.
There’s a new option within Paper for sending a notebook to Moleskine, “Print a Book.” A 15-page fold-out of your sketches is printed at a 4×3 aspect ratio to honor the iPad’s display, and you can create a customized hardcover and spine. Sketches are printed on matte paper at double the resolution of the iPad mini. Each book costs $40 with shipping and is assembled by hand. Orders take about two weeks to ship.
The whole process looks incredibly Apple-like and fun. From the FiftyThree blog:
We hope you’ll try making a Book. They’re perfect for sharing conference notes, design sketches, trips abroad, storyboards, inspiration—and the first person who uses one in a marriage proposal will get a special present from us (and a special place in our hearts).
The best part of building a tool is seeing what amazing ideas it inspires. So, you know, surprise us.
