Speed matters!

The week started in a great way with a mail from a customer who thought it was marvelous that he got his Saal book withing 2 days (ordered tuesday 10:40 and on thursday 12:10 the postman was delivering the parcel)This must be the new speed record for a delivery of a photo-book from Germany to Sweden…But even better is the really nice comment i got from 2brides.  Isabelle  and Emmi-Sabina  made my day and the whole weekend for that matter!  Thank´s a lot for your compliment …:-)

„We were at a destination wedding assignment and just before we left we ordered 4 Pro Album from SpreadBook online. The albums were for a client living in New York who was coming to Stockholm and we were on a really tight time frame. Guess just how happy we were when the team behind SpreadBook, Volker and Päivi on Eirikuva, helped us rush the order. Read this: 4 Pro Albums 30×30 cm, 30 pages ordered on the 6:th of January and were delivered to our doorstep  on the 13:th. The albums are amazingly beautiful!!! We delivered to Grand Hotel and the client was very happy! THANK YOU SO MUCH SPREADBOOK! Superfast, very professional, you are awesome“!

These little fellows are nice marketing tools…

so it´s a smart idea to offer photo-books in almost all your packages. Combine a exclusive leather book with some of the  inexpensive 19 x19 books below. These are also traditionally exposed on Photographic Paper.

Not every one of your customers is willing to spend several hundred Euros „for a book“.  When I get questions about pricing  – and I get a lot of them- I always try to make sure that the photographer values his own work more then the different books we offer.

The art of taking really beautiful  pictures and the work which is put into retouching and designing  is what is at least as important as the printing and the cover of the finished book.

One option to get paid for this work  is to completely separate the price for your work from the price of the album.  Why not take a fixed price per ready designed spread and when the customer is totally in love with his book you give him a few cover options  to choose from.  Real leather, animal friendly leather, acrylic glass,  photo-cover and why not offer 2-3 different paper options?

Your customer probably knows best what he likes!  As long as you make it easy for him to decide. We work hard to make it easy for you to order all these options within Spreadbook. Some nice features are just around the corner…

Talking about pictures & design… Photographer Anette Kongsmark was so kind to send me a few pictures of her latest creations.  6 days delivery time from the plant in Germany is hard to beat:-)


Coffee Table Books till båda bröllops- och barnfotografering

Nu är det dags att visa upp lite fler bilder på några av de Coffee Table Books jag har gjort under 2010 .
Dessa fotoböcker, som är framkallade på äkta fotopapper passar perfekt för båda bröllops- och barnalbum.
Jag lägger stor vikt vid individuell design, så att böckerna motsvarar kundernas önskemål.

Dessa böcker är otroligt fina och jag är så nöjd med att kunna erbjuda Coffee Table Books.

Malmö based photographer Peter Tarpgaard includes Saal books in his wedding package

Peter ordered his first book in july 2007 – at this time a digitally printed „Pixopolis“ book. We agreed already then that it is quite a lot of marketing value for both the photographer and  the manufacturer of the book in every sold photo-book. Digitally printed books are still playing an important roll in my daily business since we sell a lot of them to all sorts of customers. Nevertheless I am very happy about the extremely positive feedback from our professional photographers when they compare the  digitally printed books with books which are traditionally developed.

By clicking on the first picture you are directed to his blog where he shares his view on the Saal books with you.

2Brides – two passionate wedding photographers…

Isabelle Hesselberg & Emmi-Sabina Forsberg. Two passionate wedding photographers working as a team. They take romantic, sensual & intimate pictures that you definitely do not find in your parents‘ wedding album.  But in the books we supply… 2Brides ordered books from Saal and Eirikuva so far and soon they will test QTAlbums. I am looking forward to Isabelles and Emmi-Sabinas feedback !

Thanks for the kind words you 2 ! Click on the picture to get to their inspiring website !
