The company behind Mac and iOS journaling app Day One this week began offering U.S. users the chance to create printed, bound books using the content of their digital journals.

Day One Books can be designed from within the Day One iPad and iPhone app, with options to customize the cover, and include maps, stats, and full-color photos in the content.

The journals can have a flexible amount of pages (up to 400 max) and are printed on "high-quality paper" with a "coating material", according to Day One, although no other details on the specific stock are given.

The company says all digital files are "securely transferred" to the printing facility and printing is automated without any manual handling of the files, after which the digital files used are automatically deleted.

I use this as a type of diary where I have a bit of a whinge about the world and how everyone is doing things wrong. Definitely not printing it off into a coffee table book.

Why convert back to paper? I can't understand the logic behind that.
Why not? If you have a life event you want to document. Like a trip, or even Year in the life of.

Sounds like both. I'm also nervous with the idea of all that data being sent to a printer. Gawd knows there's nothing but trouble with those print-to-sell sites. A bunch of ppl's stuff gets ripped off by printing companies who turn around and make knock offs. I don't know if I can trust a 3rd party printer with all that stuff (up to 400 pages?)
No different to the old days of sending photos to a developer or documents to a printers. Home printing may seem safe but many still wish for high quality production runs.

Also do you save things on your computer, phone, in the cloud? You already don't know who is seeing and having access to them.

Besides I always consider if your printing something like a book you want it to be shared. If it is not safe or appropriate for a visitor to pick up and flick through it probably shouldn't be in writing.

This type concept for on-demand printing is very cool. I can see many uses for not only my personal endeavors, but also for my team at work, too.
