Photokina 2014 Inspired Photobooks
Estelle, head of our Coffeetablebooks.co.za department, received the amazing opportunity to travel to Cologne, Germany with the rest of the photography lovers – and everyone who is a fanatic about the industry – at Photokina 2014. The visit was inspirational! Not only did the Studio22 Team get to see new photographic equipment product launches first hand, but also investigate new developments into Photobooks & Story Albums.
The team arrived back safe and sound, excited as ever! The growing trend already taking hold in the Photobook & Story Album industry include the use of thicker pages, photographic paper, larger printing formats, more innovative and creative presentation boxes PLUS the growing use of personalised USBs in presentation boxes.
This is the best news for Coffeetablebooks.co.za because we are not only super inspired and pushing the limits in creativity, but see clearly that Coffeetablebooks is on the right track. We are proud to know that our customers are already receiving products that are emerging overseas!
Estelle also found that the majority of the top European photobook companies are sending their books to be printed overseas which results in a longer waiting period. Coffeetablebooks.co.za prints photobooks on your ‘doorstep’ and is able to deliver at a much faster than the industry average, and let’s face it, local is lekker!
But that’s not all! Seeing the potential at Photokina 2014 we have put our creative minds together and are now in the process of producing NEW Photokina-inspired photobooks. To begin, you will see our Alpha range of StoryBook Album in larger sizes with more to follow soon.
Be sure to visit the store within a couple of weeks to be the first to touch and feel our new prototypes! Watch our Facebook page for announcements.
