Start with a Binding Machine
The 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:
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.
Unibind Photobook covers as used in the OPUSalbums Pics Book have a very strong steel-binding spine, giving you a high quality bind on all of your documents. Because the spine is steel, however, the document will not be able to be folded flat or to wrap around when opened.
Select from a wide range of colours, sizes in both landscape and portrait.
With the Unibind Steel Back bindings you can make up your own cover. Use our hard or transparent cover sets or use your own.
And to hold your finished album and give it the added value - the Pics Book Presentaion Box
Add a logo or subject to your covers through our personalisation service
Then choose your Paper - Innova or Olmec of course
You can use whatever paper you choose* in the Pics Book - but OPUSalbums recommends Innova or Olmec.
OPUSalbums.com's association with Innova Art means that you can select from a wide range of professional digital photographic papers, digital art papers, and high quality consumer photo-glossy papers.

I use your albums for the same purpose as I formerly used conventional "stick-in" albums: it cuts out the tedious, time-consuming process of sticking in individual photos, and the albums are much more compact and easily stored. And the paper is top quality. I tell all my friends, and will be displaying my albums at a local camera group.
