Making a hardcover for my thesis book

Printing and Perfect Binding from Allegra which is a local print shop in Providence. I used Lulu.com before and they did a terrible job for my books. They made a square book even though the book size is apparently vertical. I complained about it and Lulu didn't reply until I had this book from
Allegra. Anyway, it is a long story to get this book.



So... I decided to make my own hard cover since the printing shop didn't have the machine for my book size. My book size is 7.44 x 9.68 inch.


The great news!
Now we can upload our PDF file to Blurb.com to publish our book as
well. I am so glad that Blurb provides this system!
