How Square Photo Book Printing Works
Square photo book printing uses traditional hand binding methods and exquisite digital printing. The book itself is made up of folios, as we take a large sheet of glossy photo paper and fold it in such a way to create 4 book pages. The print is permanent, as the ink is fused deep into the surface so it won't fade, peel away or scratch off. The spine comes in your choice of 4 colours (black, green, blue or red) and our expert bookmakers bind the pages into the spine using classic techniques. The glossy finish adds to the premium and professional feel of square book printing.
The cover of your square photo book is glossy and easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth.
Square photo book printing operates in folios, so please design your book in 4 pages at a time. This means that 1 sheet of paper is folded to make 4 pages. If you don't design your book in multiples of 4, you'll be left with blank pages. For example, if you were to only fill in 35 out of the 40 pages, a folio would be partially incomplete. Of course, this can be done intentionally to be used as note pages, however we suggest to fill the pages in 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40.
How does this product enhance my...
A square photo book is a contemporary alternative to the family photo album. Print pictures of your children's hand drawings, family days out and other special memories. Another idea is to design your book to reveal to your children a new baby brother or sister is on the way. This could help your little ones take the news better.
Bring your products to life and make your own picture book brochure. Whether they're placed in showrooms or delivered to customers' homes, it's an impressive way to promote your business. They're also great for artists to use as portfolios or lookbooks, and because of the size, they can be taken along to interviews and meetings.
A unique way to capitalise on square photo book printing is to create your own range of colouring books. Print each page with the outlines of your artwork and leave blank for customers to colour in themselves. It's a novel way to encourage your fans to enjoy your work. Colouring in therapy is a huge trend at the moment so don't miss out.
