There are two ways to build an online library using Turning the Pages – license the content management system or ask us to build bespoke books.
The Content Management System
The Turning the Pages CMS has been designed to be as simple to use as possible. You don’t need any technical skills to create a whole library of books and single-sheet items. The CMS generates kiosk versions for your gallery and online versions for the web. Licensing the content management system costs £4,995 as a one-time cost. You can then purchase an additional support, maintenance and updates contract for £995 per year which gives you unlimited phone and email support, bug fixes and access to any updates we make. Optionally, you can also ask us to host your Turning the Pages library from £50/month. Alternatively you can host it yourself and we’ll help you get everything up and running.
See the content management system in action here.
Often the easiest way to get up and running is to ask us to build the books for you. Fill in some documentation, send us the images and we’ll do the rest, whether you want the book for gallery, online or both. We can add interpretative text, audio and video if you want, or develop completely custom features. Costs depend on the length of the book and any custom-coding, but to create gallery kiosk versions guideline costs are as follows:
- up to 50 pages, including text and audio £995
- 51-100 pages, including text and audio £1,295
- 101-200 pages, including text and audio £1,695
- 201-400 pages, including text and audio £2,250
- over 400 pages or custom features contact us
These prices are from images, text and audio supplied to us conforming to the specification set out in the asset preparation guides available here. If you’d like online versions of your books, add 25% to the above prices and we’ll host it for the next year. After that we’ll charge you just £10/month per book up to a maximum of £50/month.
Prices above are based on images supplied according to the image preparation guide, if you’d prefer us to do the image preparation add £10 per page to the cost of each book.
