Our client, PLWS Photography Group, seem to have done their homework, because their photography book printing project of phenomenal graffiti art came out fantastic! Professional photography can be tricky, not only to capture, but also to print. Ensuring that color translates correctly from screen to paper takes some practice in understanding color and digital print.

PLWS Photography Group is operated by artists, who share a common goal of creating art through photography. Through collaboration with other artists, they create, build, and develop projects that not only further their passion for photography, but also benefit their local art community.

Color Photography Book Printing for PLWS Photography Group

Specs for this Photography Book Printing Project:

  • Full color 138 pages + Cover
  • Perfect Bound
  • 100# Gloss Text for inside pages
  • 100# Matte Cover stock for the cover

Due to the thickness of this book, as well as the paper stock chosen by PLWS, this photography book printing project was a bit on the heavier side. Not necessarily a bad thing in this case. Each page was filled with high-resolution photographs of big, colorful, and eccentric graffiti art. Some pages had full spread art pieces that actually lined up perfectly in the spine area. This was some great detail-oriented design work. Very well done. The look and feel of the book was very ritzy, professional, and sturdy. What’s not to like?

Notice under the specs that the inside text was gloss and the cover was matte. This was a very important part of the success of this color photography book printing project. As Publishing Xpress mentioned in a previous post, glue sticks much better to matte or uncoated surfaces. PLWS made a wise decision when choosing the paper stock, balancing matte with gloss. Especially with a heavy book, you want the strongest hold without compromising quality or your binding option.

“The process behind selecting the right printing company was rather difficult considering that most printers don’t offer enough high quality printing options. Publishing Xpress offered the products and services we needed to complete our project without compromising on the design. Our experience was smooth and effortless. The ordering process took only five minutes and before we knew it, our order had been shipped.

Although there was a two week time table, the product arrived two days earlier than expected. When our product arrived we inspected each item for quality. As expected each book was in flawless condition exactly the way we hoped they would come out. We will definitely be using Publishing Xpress again in the future for all of our printing needs.”  — Patrick Lai, PLWS Photography Group
