A couple of years ago we wrote about how bookleteer could be used to create shareable personal portfolios or pocketfolios. We continue to think that the eBook formats are ideal for making a simple pocket portfolio about your work to share and/or give way to prospective clients, employers, commissioners or funders. More than a business card or the generic student postcard, even the smallest eBook of 10 pages plus covers offers a chance to show what you’re capable of, what experiences you’ve had and who you could be in a highly personalised way that exceeds what any CV could indicate. Share your pocketfolio as a handmade ebook, online with bookreader or have them printed at low cost using our Short Run Printing service to stand out from the crowd and communicate something special about yourself.
As a new crop of students are preparing to graduate into one of the harshest employment climates ever, and with youth unemployment at an all time high, we have a special offer for anyone wanting to make and print their own pocketfolio – taking advantage of our recent price reductions for A6 Short Run printed books and lower minimum print run of just 25 copies:
For every Short Run Printing order for 25 copies of a portfolio style eBook, we will send an additional 25 copies free. Just use the discount code “PORTFOLIO2012”.
