Press release from the issuing company
Puurs – Unibind, specialist in binding systems for photo prints and personalization solutions for photo books, is to showcase at Photokina 2010 a raft of innovative new products for the fast developing photo book market. Taking centre stage is the unique Photos & Sounds, a photo book that combines images with music and voice recordings, and is set to transform the photo book market. Other products on show that will help businesses create new commercial opportunities include the HardCoverMaker 650M, an easy-to-use and cost-efficient solution for producing personalized photo book covers in-store. Also present at Photokina is the Foil Xpress digital printer, which enables quick and simple one colour foil printing onto photo books.
Photokina takes place September 21-26 in Cologne. Unibind can be found in Hall 4.1, at booth F040-G049.
Photos & Sounds – photo books that say more than a thousand words
This high-quality product combines Unibind's innovative Staple SteelBinding technology with the award-winning 'talking technology' from US company, Dinotalk. The Photos & Sounds PhotoBook integrates this talking technology into the front cover, enabling users to record a personal message matching the securely bound photo prints.
Esmeralda Peleman, CEO at Unibind's headquarters in Belgium, says: "Photos & Sounds responds to the growing trend for personalization and lends photo books that extra touch of personality. We anticipate much interest in this technology as the possibilities are limitless and the technology is easily understood by end users.
Photokina is a perfect backdrop to showcase our innovative new products. We are looking forward to meeting existing and new customers, and helping them find new ways to set themselves apart in a highly competitive market.
HardCoverMaker 650M – Unique, personalized photo book cover solutions
The recently introduced CaseMaker 750A offers the same opportunities for personalized, high-quality hardcover production on an industrial scale.
"The HardCoverMaker 650M meets the growing demand for photo books with personalized covers," adds Peleman. "It extends the possibilities of the dry minilabs, and offers retailers and photographers a fast, user-friendly and cost-efficient in-store tool to produce personalized hard covers."
Shining examples with Foil Xpress
Foil Xpress couldn't be easier to install – it simply connects to a computer and is operated like any other printer. No dyes are required, and it eliminates the need for printing tools and complicated set-ups. Plus it is very cost effective, especially for short and personalized runs.
