OPUSalbums Pics Book Total Photo Book Solutions - Based on the Unibindthermal book binding system



With ordinary Photobooks you get what you're given.  With the OPUS Pics Book you are in control!

The OPUSalbums.com Pics Book package gives you total control over your album making process - the choice of cover or binding  paper and software is yours.  But OPUSalbums.com has brought together the strengths of fantastic ranges of products to give you an unequalled offering in the design and production of really effective photo books.

OPUSalbums pics book***   The Unibind Thermal book binding machines and covers.  

***   Innova and Olmec Papers

***    Software to make it all happen - dg Foto Art or the MyBook Album Generator 

   -  all in one package from OPUSalbums.com! 

And you're ready to produce wonderful, memorable and presentable albums - all your own work!  

Indeed, use the OPUS Pics Book  for your photos - your holiday record - a wedding or a record of your interest - sport, family history, architecture, wildlife - or whatever business document.  In buiness use the OPUS Pics Book for product presentations, portfolios, proposals or even guides.  In fact it does not even have to be a 'picture' book! 


If you don't have the amount of binding to justify the modest investment in your machine you can use the OPUS Pics Book Jr  - photobooks which look just like the OPUS Pics Book - but with an invisible staple binding - all you need is a stapler!.  For more go

 Prefer an album with replaceable pages we have the OPUS Photo Art album - similar quality pages - same double sided papers - but with pole system binding - no machine is necessary.  For more information click here.

Start with a Unibind  Binding Machine 

docustyleThe OPUSalbums Pics Book  uses the Unibind range of binding systems and covers.  In your home, studio or office you can produce fully steel bound volumes. To get started you need a very easy-to-use flexible and reliable binding machine.  Our entry level model is the Unibind Docustyle.  This is ideal for home use.  Professional photographers and offices will want a more A3-capable advanced model - Unibind Photobook Creator - .    Details of larger capacilty high function binding systems from Unibind are available on request.  

Using a Unibind binding system is so easy:

  How to bind with OPUS Unibind

 1 - Insert your pages into the Pics Book , photo book, report or other document cover.  

2 - Place the cover binding machine heating element.

3 -  When the green light comes on transfer to the cooling tray*

The result is a perfectly bound album book.

* The Docustyle does not have a cooling tray - just place the document in a suitable place for a few minutes.
