Imaging Solutions system features an impressive flat binding system which means that landscape photos can be shared across a two page spread. Photo books, and all other value added photo products created with Imaging Solutions systems, are printed on quality photo paper, ensuring impressive print results comparable to actual print photos.
The stunning results achieved through the Imagining Solutions system can be traced back to the machines and processes put in place. Designed and produced in Switzerland, Imaging Solutions machines composed a five step process: input; software; printing; processing; post-processing.
Input, the first step in the process, uses cutting-edge technology to enter digital or analog data into the system via film, CD or memory stick. Software, engineered with over thirty years of expertise, features image enhancement, easy integration, and is compatible with all work systems. High-speed printers produce images on real photo paper, further enhancing image quality while providing unmatched reliability.
High performance paper processers work with both digital and analog systems and feature optimal integration into any work system. Post-processing packaging, sorting and cutting requires little man-power.
All Imaging Solutions machines can be adjusted and customized in an existing workflow and according to product volumes produced.

In addition to providing businesses with an innovative and attractive service, Imaging Solutions offers companies an important method of increasing their revenue, which is more important now than ever before.
