Make Photo Books Easily with our Products

The rapidly growing popularity for photo books has been fueled by the development of digital photography and the popularity of social networking. Consumers can purchase, create, or print photo books at retail locations, in-store or online and immediately share their books to friends, family, and even work colleagues.

Having the ability to print and produce a small percentage of the number of digital pictures taken each year can mean substantial growth for your printing business. Photo books have the flexibility to satisfy any client’s demands including the size, shape, texture, or covering which can further boost your business in the process.

  • The profit from a single photo book can be greater than that of 400 individual 4″ x 6″ prints.
  • According to InfoTrends (US Photo Merchandise End User Study, 2009), 90% of people who have created a photo book expect to do so again. Study participants reported spending about $85 on purchasing and producing photo merchandise in the past year.

PACKAGING PRINTING MADE EASILY WITH OUR PRODUCTS

The digital packaging industry is expected to have a compound annual growth rate of 15.7% between 2009 and 2014. This growth is driven by the increasing demand for innovative ways to differentiate products from each other, the search for ways to the short-run packaging process, and the emergence of regional, local and low volume products.

Personalized promotional tools, pharmaceutical boxes, private label foods and product samples are all ideal applications for thin, folding cartons printed digitally on demand.

Market Opportunities

  • Printing accounts for only 14% of the total cost of collaterals – just the tip of the iceberg.
