Black Friday (and beyond) deals for digital publishing professionals

Any digital publishing related companies out there who would like to be included in this list, use the Contact TNM page to pass on the details of deals you are offering this week

Every year TNM complies a list of Black Friday specials that digital publishing professionals might be interested in. Some vendors who sell into the industry are free to contact me to have their own specials listed here. But, let’s be honest, the real reason for the annual story is that it makes great clickbait. Any headline with “Black Friday” is bound to get a few clicks, right?

So here we go – and this story will be expanded on over the next 24 hours as more specials become known:
