Photostory Automatica VP Now Available

Fullerton, CA – August 7, 2017 – Photostory, the leading manufacturer of high quality Italian-made photobook binding machines, today officially released the Automatica VP, designed to produce professional quality true lay-flat photobooks at high speeds.  The advanced system binds varying sizes of photo prints for producing books from 6” x 8” to as large as 20” x 20” at an amazing rate of 650 pages per hour. The new model joins the family of Automatica series machines that fully automates the book binding process of creasing, folding, sheet insertion, and binding. Utilizing the company’s patented Easysheets inserts for added rigidity, the Automatica VP produces photo blocks that opens perfectly flat, preserving the design integrity of the photo layout and eliminating the harsh breaks found in conventional books. In addition, the system employs a “no mess” heat process to fasten pages together instead of the standard “wet” glue procedure, resulting in a much cleaner, beautiful final product.
