Offering options such as stapled and perfect bound books, WowBooks is the market leader in Lay-Flat binding, whereby books open completely flat, making them perfect for displaying images.
Additional finishes include laminating and digital foiling, and WowBooks is the only company based in the UK to offer digital foiling using a Kurz foiling line.
Andrew Balcombe, founder of WowBooks, commented: “We created WowBooks because we saw a gap in the market for a dedicated production service for consumer publishers that offered speed, product innovation and outstanding value. Our launch pack showcases our products beautifully, putting some powerful personalisation into the hands of consumer publishers and bringing our brand to life with our short film. Even as they take hundreds of digital photos every week, we know customers see real value in beautifully produced, personalised products that are tactile and make a lasting impression.”
WowBooks launches with three consumer publishers already on board.
