Printing-1 now with Photobook Calendars 

The new version of the Printing-1 photo book software provides new layouts and calendar templates. The demanding photographer or designer on Windows or Apple PCs can now create professionally printed photo book calendars.

Photo books are the creative gift option this Season. More and more often, when the camera or mobile phone cam shutter snaps, images do not get printed. Instead, photo enthusiasts create digital photo albums to get them professionally printed and bound. To display the best snaps around the year, Printing-1 offers now calendar templates in its photo book editing software.

Photo Books are a popular present for friends and family because they combine style, quality and personal expression in each individual and unique book. With the new photo book calendars the online service is entering the also very popular gift category of personalised calendars, with the quality and platform independence (i.e. the photo book software runs on PC as well as on Apple Mac) associated with Printing-1. It’s Management is preparing for a rush of photo book and calendar orders in the coming days and states that orders placed by the 6th of December can still be delivered in the UK and Ireland in time for Christmas.

Printing-1 offers with the photobook software upgrade v3.5 tools to create colour schemes, which can be saved as templates. In addition the number of layout templates has been expanded. Images can be positioned quickly and precisely using templates and can be repositioned freely for a scrapbook design style. Frames can be defined individually for each image but images can also be spread frameless over single or double 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 now also as photo calendars. Printing-1 uses a particularly strong binding process for the hardcover books or linen hardcover, soft cover 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 144 pages with soft or hardcover. The Printing-1 photo 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

According to Printing-1 during the software development special emphasis was laid on flexibility and user comfort. Images can be scaled and positioned freely. The page numbering style can be turned on or off for each individual page. Instead of a limiting automatic layout assistant 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://printing-1.co.uk as projects. Before placing a print order, the photo book layout file is uploaded to Printing-1 first. There the ditial photo album 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 a printed photo albums 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 on their way to replace the traditional photo album.

Flexible and convenient

Printing-1 offers a Windows and MacOS compatible online photo service, which can be used with photos from any digital camera or camera phone. Printing-1 specialises in photo books and photo canvas printing only. The professional printing processes allow Printing-1 to offer its photo booklet in the “pocket” format with ring- or laminated binding from £7.95 – plus p&p £4.90 (orders over £100 ship free). Apart from the Pocket and the Maxi format, Printing-1 is offering three further intermediate sizes.
