Hi, Realising I am late to this exchange, but I just wanted to share that I used this tool 2 years ago: I (as a volunteer of WMNL) printed the Wikipedia article about the Dutch city of Hengelo through PediaPress, to celebrate the anniversary of collaboration with the library in the town. They had been organising monthly Wiki-gatherings for 5 years and did a lot of work on describing their districts' local heritage: this was how we thanked them for their work.
The book itself was not fabulous (because there were very few corrections I could make to the not-so-perfect visual presentation), but what is a greater gift to a GLAM, or an individual volunteer, than to see the outcome of their years-long work in print? Just an idea on how this can (also) be used again in the future, if there is a way to fix or re-design the extension.
