Condé Nast and HP announced they’re going to partner on a project that will let readers skip the mailing lag and print their own magazines on demand — from their home printers:
The Condé Nast pilot program will feature print-to-home services for subscribers to schedule the delivery of content from their favorite brands – such as Allure, Details, Epicurious, Glamour, Golf Digest, Self, and Wired – directly to their personal printers. … With scheduled delivery to HP web-connected printers using HP print tools, publishers can reach readers more frequently than with print magazines and more tangibly than via email.
