Extreme Storybook test


Our genuine photographic Storybook albums incorporate a unique binding system, this technique not only allows each firm page to open perfectly flat, it also allows us to make changes to the album. We were also able to replace pages where a client wanted alternative images to be displayed. We were able to make corrections to spelling errors, make design changes and even add pages. Now we’ve taken it to the next level, we have proven the extreme level at which it can handle stress. On hearing a rumor about one of our competitors books, we felt it was an ideal time to have some fun and show off the strength of our albums.

In an attempt to show the durability of our binding, Colin Sunkel (the senior member) decided to put it to the test. He drilled a hole through half the album and connected it to a rope. One end of the rope was connected to a roof support beam and the other to the album. We then proceeded to take turns to hang from the other half of the album.

The preparation: Ziggy assists Colin and checks that the ropes are attached and the album is secure.img_5811-medium
First it’s the bosses turn. One down, two to go.

img_5812-mediumThen the binder has a turn. Elton put it together but he has not got the weight to make any effect.

img_5813-mediumThen, it’s my turn. It’s tougher than you think to get a grip on our perfectly flat laminated pages, but I got to hang in there for a few seconds longer than the others.

What does it prove? We believe this shows how confident we are in our binding (and the strength of our pages for that matter).
