IMAGING SOLUTIONS PRODUCTS
LayFlat Photobook Technology
The LayFlat book binding technology is the ideal for premium book-on-demand products such as photo books or coffee table books. Both sides of the book are completely flat. With this type of binding visual information is not lost in the gutter and two-page spreads are fully visible. The book’s pages do not turn over automatically as with other bindings.
LayFlat photobook technology is also eminently suitable for corporate publications, art books, or cookbooks, anywhere quality images and content are bound in books.
Pictures taken by using smartphones have become more and more popular all over the world. Most of these pictures have been stored in digital format.
On the other hand, people still enjoy holding printed photos in their hands, whether developed on photo paper or digitally printed.
Following a new trend, consumers are showing a great interest in customized printed postcards or greeting cards or other popular photo products, such as printed posters or calendars with their personal photos.
Creating individual photo books is very popular and the demand is steadily growing.
Photo books with LayFlat binding and photo calendars on silver halide photo paper are premium products for special occasions, such as weddings, school year books, baby albums and many others.
Images on photo paper have vibrant colors, high resolution and do not fade easily.
Variable picture lengths for customized products easily meet the consumers’ needs.
Decorative canvases for homes, offices and shops. Never before was the individual production of home decoration easier than today. Wonderful wedding photographs, exotic travel memories or other unique artwork become premium designed prints with the ISAG fastFrame systems for automated canvas stretching. Every machine is designed for a specific purpose of automated canvas stretching.
Finishing Equipment for Print-on-Demand, Books in Edition 1 and Small Volumes
Before the spread of digital printing, it was neither easy nor profitable to print books in edition 1 or short runs. Using digital printing presses and the corresponding post processing systems, makes it possible to personalize books for your customers and customize them to meet different demands and requirements. Premium book-on-demand editions for specific target groups can be produced without financial risk.
The production of an exact number of photo books, calendars or other on-demand products, that definitely will be sold, prevents paper waste and saves unnecessary costs. Storage can be minimized and stock costs are reduced.
With the ISAG Print Finishing System, your book-on-demand production will become as flexible as your customers’ demands, with formats from original Instagram format up to 18″ x 18″ flush mount wedding albums, produce high quality photo books, calendars or other beautiful designed print products.
Imaging solutions is also expert in production-optimizing software: the fully automatic image enhancement software VIESUS (TM), the workflow software PURUS for the production of photobooks and other on-demand photo products, and netGate, as an image processing and image data server for integration into the lab workflow.
