KIS Photo-Me Group, the world leader in instant printing equipment, is generating international acclaim with their ground-breaking KIS Photobook Maker, designed to produce long lasting photo albums in minutes.
The KIS Photobook Maker made its American debut at PMA 09 in Las Vegas last week. Both photo buffs and retail buyers praised this new kiosk, the first end-to-customer solution able to create, print and bind attractive photo albums in minutes.
Cutting edge smart technology software is the cornerstone of the new machine, as it sorts customer photos into an aesthetically pleasing layout, based on photo date and archival properties, in just two minutes. High gloss, stain proof and scratch resistant paper, as well as a quality binding system, ensure the DVD jacket size albums are built to bear non-stop admiration.
To complete an album consumers simply bring their images on a memory card or UBS stick to the KIS Photobook Maker, select the images to appear in the album and ensure the images are oriented in the right direction. Consumers then choose a photo for the front cover and enter an album name which will be printed on the KIS Photobook cover page and spine. Approximately eight minutes later, consumers leave the kiosk with their new Photobook in hand.
Aimed at retails outlets and tourist locations, the KIS Photobook Maker will revolutionize the Photobook industry by offering accessible, easy to create albums, designed, print and bound in minutes. With the international credit crunch at its peak, retailers will be pleased to extend their service offering with a lucrative means of increasing revenue; KIS Photobook Makers are expected to offer a swift return on investment with profit margins up to 50%.
“Thanks to digital cameras, the average consumer takes eight to ten times more digital photos than with analogue cameras,” explains Nicolas Series, President of KIS USA and Vice President of Photo-Me International Plc. “Photobooks have evolved as a means of transforming rarely viewed digital images into finished albums and preserved memories, perfect for reminiscing and reliving life’s finest moments.
Our cutting-edge smart technology software, combined with the latest techniques in digital imaging, allow the KIS Photobook Maker to create, print and bind quality albums in minutes, and this is an industry first,” finishes Series.
Scheduled to appear in a selection of test retail outlets starting in April, both retail owners and consumers are anxiously awaiting the KIS Photobook Maker public debut.
Up to 30 pages and 90 photos can be included in each KIS Photobook. The high quality albums feature 300 dpi print resolution, beautifully showcasing photos. The popular 5.7” x 8” size, complete with the album title printed on the spine, is easy to view, share and store.
