Lulu is proud to announce the release of our Print API, the first of several API connections we plan to offer the publishing and developer communities.
What exactly does this mean for you?
I’m glad you asked! Are you a publisher, a developer, an entrepreneur, or a business owner? Are you a web-savvy author with your own website who would like to sell directly to your readers? If you fall into any of these categories, the Lulu Print API will allow you to take advantage of our print network directly.
Let’s take a closer look at the Lulu Print API and how this new service might work for you or somebody you know.
Even if you’re unfamiliar with the technical aspects of APIs for software, you’ve almost certainly encountered them online without realizing.

I say this as someone with only the most rudimentary understanding of coding.
