July 17, 2019 – Making prints at a retail location has become faster and faster. A 16×12” (40x30cm) print can be output in under 2 minutes. Now, 6-16×12” (40x30cm) prints can be easily transformed into an attractive 5-page 8×12” photobook in only 3 minutes. 

Photo retailers operating a Mini Condor Plus pneumatic photobook binding system from Marcello Strada and a manual paper cutter can create a 5-page softcover 6×8” (15x20cm) photobook for customers in less than ten minutes. The only materials needed for the photobook are six sheets of 6×8” (15x20cm) adhesive cardboard, with a total cost of less than US$1.00.

A short time-lapse video shows that creating the photobook can be rapidly accomplished by retail associates without extensive training. 

Marcello Strada manufactures adhesive sheets for photobook production as well as compact pneumatic systems for making photobooks up to 21×21” (50x50cm) and associated materials. It also offers a beautiful line of Alessia covers.
