Bonté Books Offers Professionally Bound Photo Books
Grantville PA - June 30, 2010 – As professional bookbinders for over 50 years, Bonté Books has bound millions of archival library books, school textbooks and even menus for Emeril Lagasse’s newest restaurant Chop House. Now Bonté Books is excited to announce they are taking their bookbinding expertise and applying it to produce high quality photo books with the launch of their new site bontebooks.com.
Tired of seeing poorly made, flimsy photo books from other companies, Bonté Books, a third generation family business of professional bookbinders, decided to create a new kind of photo book, where quality matters.
“Many typical photo book are like mouse traps, they need to be held open.” explains Gary Wert, President of Bonté. “Photo books from Bonté Books open flat and are bound to last. When you open our books you can see they are fold sewn to ensure they never fall apart. Our larger books are bound using state-of-the-art, flexible PUR adhesive binding.”
When you visit bontebooks.com you can choose among six different sizes of photo books, everything from the petite 5x5 to the grand 12x12. Popular sizes like 8x8 and 8.5x11 are also offered. Besides the quality binding, Bonté Books also offers a variety of cover options. Users can pick between two types of book cloth – either traditional or linen – in bright, fresh colors like kiwi and raspberry, with a total of 14 different color options. Users can also select a photo and create a modern matte finished image cover.
The process of creating each new photo book is shared between the user and Bonté and the possibilities are endless. Users are given complete freedom to create a truly personalized photo book with unique custom themes. It’s as simple as uploading images directly from a computer or from Facebook or Flickr, selecting a book size and then starting the layout process. There isn’t any special software to download – the entire process is completed online and is easy to navigate. True to their tagline, once a user makes a book, Bonté starts the production and binding process to make it brilliant.
Beyond photo books, Bonté Books also offers a unique self-publishing service for more advanced users. All a user needs is a PDF to start the process of publishing their next recipe book, family history or novel. Click on the Self-publish tab on bontebooks.com to begin the quoting process.
