Printing Services for a High-End Coffee Table Book

At Imaging Solutions AG, our expertise with coffee table book technology is ahead of the game. Our systems and services are designed not just for coffee table book production but also for canvas photogeneration, LayFlat book assembly and even book-on-demand production.

Our Swiss-made systems are used all over the world to produce the sort of high-quality coffee table books that you might find people perusing in upmarket salerooms or luxurious hotel lobbies anywhere. Of course, when marketing a service or a product with a coffee table book rather than with other printed media, such as a pamphlet or a brochure, quality is important.

This is because coffee table books are more time consuming to produce and are consequently associated with greater luxuriousness. As such, the machines making the coffee table books must be of the highest quality themselves. What makes those made by Imaging Solutions AG fall into this superior category? Read on to find out why our coffee table book technology is recognised as a leader in its field by so many top-end brands and clients.

Why Choose Coffee Table Books?

Why Choose Coffee Table Books?

Printing your own coffee table books means you are able to keep your most important company information and latest marketing messages fully updated and easily accessible. Clients will often feel freer to browse a coffee table book than more direct forms of marketing information. If you place your information on a tablet, for example, then it will rarely be as relaxed an experience as leafing through the pages of a highly-polished coffee table book.

Ideally, a coffee table book will stand out from other printed media, too. This is because it will be a larger than usual book, which can be used for the purposes of display. It will be hardbound so that it sets the right tone for quality and is durable, even when it is thumbed through by numerous people. Of course, one of the most important aspects of any coffee table book will be the images that are printed in it.

Just like a glossy magazine, a high-quality coffee table book ought to have content that is highly visual and easy to understand. Inferior printed material lets itself down when such imagery is not supported by the binding. Even so-called perfect bound coffee table books have images that are distorted in the middle.

With Imaging Solutions AG, however, our LayFlat technology allows you to print coffee table books that don’t have this issue. Our systems allow for high-quality images that can extend on both the left and right-hand sides of a book without any distortion, helping you to convey your messages in a much clearer manner than you may have ever thought possible!

One of the things that make our coffee table book production systems stand out from others is our attention to the smallest detail. This is certainly noticeable when it comes to our software development, which is designed to help all our clients to get the best out of our systems. In short, at Imaging Solutions AG, we have world-class image enhancement software that you can use with our bookbinding machines to produce optimal results.

To begin with, our software will remove redundant pixelation from any of the images you want to include in your – or your client’s – coffee table book. When you are producing coffee table books for high-end brands and customers, it can often be a surprise that the quality of the images you are sent to print from is under par. This is where our software really comes into its own!

Our software, VIESUS, will get rid of colour image noise and other unwanted effects from your digital imagery and prepare your photos for a high-level printing process. Available for Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows 10 users, this software can also be used alongside other leading editing systems, such as Adobe Photoshop®.

Of course, there are some standard features that come with VIESUS that you will want to take advantage of routinely. Red-eye reduction is a common one that can have a profound effect on any portraits that might be included in your coffee table book, for example. Additionally, you may also like to make use of sharpness, shadow and light enhancements to help improve the quality of what you will ultimately print. 

Bear in mind that VIESUS runs on a netGate platform and it can also be used with PURUS by Imaging Solutions. It is also available as a scalable stand-alone piece of software. As such, you can use it in a manner that suits your business requirements exactly. Therefore, all sizes of enterprises are catered for by our image enhancement systems.
