What makes us special:

Qualitätsmerkmal - Druck


There are several ways to print black and white. The most common method is 4-color printing, where pictures can get an unattractive color cast. In order to provide our customers with the best result, we print black and white images with Light Black and thus obtain a realistic result.

Qualitätsmerkmal - Stabilität


For our book covers, we use high-quality, highly compacted handboard with an extraordinarily high degree of stability. It improves the haptics and makes our photo books more resistant through better gluing. In addition, title embossing on them becomes more beautiful. By a special treatment of the joint, this is brought additionally exactly in form.

Qualitätsmerkmal - Aufschlagverhalten

Opening properties

In the production of our book blocks we use the correct attachments as used in traditional bookbinding. The real attachment consists of a continuous sheet of paper folded in the middle. This provides the greatest possible stability and gives the books a beautiful opening behaviour even on the first page.

Qualitätsmerkmal - Langlebigkeit


Heavy books receive a lot of attention from us. That's why page-strong photo books, albums with a fabric cover or flat books are reinforced by hand with sturdy paper in the folding area. This measure protects against tearing joints, which can often be seen in used books.

Unparalleled variety

Bookfactory photo books offer you an unparalleled choice of papers, binding types, covers and embossing options.
