What is the Hardcopy button? How does the Hardcopy button work?

Cadmus ArticleWorks' Hardcopy button lets your customers order documents from your website and receive them printed, bound and delivered the next day. With the click of the Hardcopy button, your customers are linked to our secure e-commerce server where they can see the item(s) they ordered displayed in a shopping cart. To complete a purchase, they enter their shipping and credit card information. When they have finished, they are transferred back to your site.

How do I get a Hardcopy button? How quickly can I start distributing documents?

To obtain a Hardcopy button for your documents, you register your company and fill-out a simple form describing your documents. Once you decide what you want to charge, what fulfillment options you want to offer, the document files are uploaded. As soon as the process is completed a Hardcopy link is sent to you via e-mail. When you receive the HTML link, place it on your website next to the document and you are ready for business. That means, you can start selling or distributing your documents the same day. To register with Cadmus ArticleWorks, click on the Sign-up area accessible from all pages. If you wish to see the process, we offer a <demo> detailing each step.
