Glossy prints last longer

For three years Printing-1 has been offering customers the opportunity to design their individual photo book. To the range of photo canvas prints and photo books as well as photobook calendars Printing-1 now adds the glossy photo book. For this the complete photo book pages are coated with an environmentally friendly glossy varnish, which improves brilliance and detail.

Environmentally friendly diversity

Thanks to the new High-Gloss finish option, the printed surface is protected from wear and de-colouring, ensuring a long life for the book and the photographic memories within. The new hi-gloss can even be used with a good ecological conscience.
