Printing-1 Premium Photo Book spreading across 32” wide double pages
Printing-1 the specialist service for PC and Mac makes ever bigger photo books. The new larger formats Premium (H12” x W16”) and Panorama (H8” x W12”) offer space for many photographs on up to 250 pages.
(PresseBox) (London, )The majority of snaps taken during the vacations, a wedding or party, never make it onto the traditional 6”x4” sheet of photographic paper; stepping in its place are online photo sharing and printed photo albums which are professionally printed as a coffee table photo book. As the resolution of digital photographs is increasing, the specialist service Printing-1 is making photo books that literally stand out by their sheer size.
Printing-1 extends its offer with the new formats “panorama” and “premium” and at the same time is making the photo books bigger. The Printing-1 photo books carrying up to 144 pages could always be made larger than with most other photo book services. Printing-1 is now extending the number of pages, offering the options of 200 and 250 pages. According to the vendor, the “premium” format book with 250 pages is Europe's largest on-demand photobook. In any case, it offers a lot of space to archive photographic memories.
The new formats from Printing-1 at a glance:
- premium: H12“ x W16“ / 40 x 30cm as hard cover with up to 250 pages
- panorama: H8“ x W12“ / 29,7 x 21cm (DIN A4 wide) as hard cover with up to 250 pages
- maxi: 12“ x 12“ / 30 x 30cm as hard cover with up to 250 pages
The Printing-1 range includes five sizes, starting with small photo booklets (Pocket: (H10.5 cm x W14.8 cm), over A4 size books to the 12”x12” Maxi format photo book, all formats are now also available as photo calendars. Printing-1 uses a particularly strong binding process for the hardcover photobooks or linen hardcover, softcover or spiral and can therefore offer larger books with more pages than other photo book services. Hardcover photo books start with 36 pages and can include up to 250 pages in a hard cover. The Printing-1 photo book covers come in a choice of colours and can be edited with photographs and text.
The Printing-1 Photo Book Software for Windows PC and Apple MacOS
Photo book software for Windows and Apple Macintosh can be downloaded for free from the Printing-1 website. Images can be scaled and positioned freely. The page numbering style can be turned on or off for each individual page. The application provides templates to position images precisely and easily. Printing-1 also offers silk matt and glossy paper and its software allows switching between different types of binding and book formats at any time during the design process.
Not only printed photo albums but also online photo sharing
Individual photo books can be saved and shared online at http://www.printing-1.co.uk as projects. Before placing a print order, the photo book layout file is uploaded to Printing-1 first. There the photo book can be shared free of charge with friends and family before ordering prints. That is particularly practical when after a party or family event others want to pay for their own copy. Sending printed memory books directly to friends and family abroad (Europe or the USA) also makes a very personal gift and saves on postage costs.
The digital photo service Printing-1 delivers in the UK and most European countries as well as the USA within two weeks of ordering online. Photo books professionally printed from own digital photographs are a great step forward from the traditional photo album.
