The meaning of «lucidpress»

Lucidpress is a web-based desktop publishing software application developed by Lucid Software. It is used to create brochures, flyers, newsletters, business cards, posters, magazines and presentations. Built on web standards such as HTML5 and JavaScript, Lucidpress is supported in modern web browsers including Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer 8+. Though it started as a platform for single users and small businesses, Lucidpress has found substantial user bases in both education and enterprise spaces.

In October 2013, Lucid Software announced Lucidpress as a public beta version. Following its release, Lucidpress was featured in TechCrunch, VentureBeat and PC World, with TechCrunch noting: "I had a chance to test the app before its launch and it is indeed very easy to use. If you've ever used a desktop publishing app in the past, you'll feel right at home with Lucidpress, as it features the same kind of standard top-bar menu and layout options as most other publishing apps. In terms of features, it can also hold its own against similar desktop-based apps."[1][2]

In October 2013, Lucidpress became available in the Google Workspace Marketplace (formerly G Suite Marketplace).[3]

In May 2015, Lucidpress hit 1 million users.[4] One year later in June 2016, Lucidpress hit 2 million users and announced its Advanced Template Locking feature.[5]

In November 2016, Lucidpress announced its Print & Ship feature, by which users can order printed versions of the documents they create in Lucidpress.[6]

In May 2021, Lucidpress announced that it had been acquired by Charles Thayne Capital ("CTC"), a growth-oriented and technology-focused private investment firm.[7]

In October 2016, Lucidpress conducted a survey with research firm Demand Metric about the impact of brand consistency. The report, titled "The Impact of Brand Consistency," contains insights from over 200 senior marketing and brand leaders. It found, among other insights, that consistent brand marketing is worth an estimated 23% increase in revenue.[8]

Lucid Software raised $1 million in Seed in 2011, led by Google Ventures.[9]

In May 2014, the company received a $5 million investment. The round was led by Salt Lake-based Kickstart Seed Fund.[10]

In September 2016, the company received a $36 million investment from Spectrum Equity, whose previous investments include other online platforms such as Ancestry.com, Lynda.com, Prezi, and SurveyMonkey. Kickstart Seed Fund and Grayhawk Capital also participated in the round.[11]

Lucidpress is an alternative to complex design programs like Adobe InDesign and Microsoft Publisher (especially for Mac users). Its design capabilities range from single-page documents like business cards and flyers to multi-page documents like annual reports and digital magazines.

Lucidpress is accessible anywhere through modern web browsers, and all documents are securely stored in the cloud. The application does not require a download.
