The PhotoPress, manufactured by Powis Parker, is an innovative photo book binding system that quickly and easily turns silver-halide, dye-sub and inkjet prints into gorgeous, high quality photo books. Using a powerful electro-mechanical stepper motor, the PhotoPress uses pressure instead of heat to laminate photographic prints onto pressure-sensitive Signature sheets or boards. The process is simple: take your prints and insert them into the Signature sheets or boards in the order you'd like your book arranged, place the stacked prints into the PhotoPress for a 60 second binding cycle to create the book block and finally, assemble the book block into a Powis Photobook Hardcover using the Hardcover Assembly Guide.
The minimum size of photo book the PhotoPress can bind is 4"H x 6"W, while the maximum size is 12"H x 13"W, with a maximum book thickness of 0.5 inches or approximately 35-40 photos. We want you completely satisfied with your purchase, which is why we include our Saddle Point Systems One Year Local Warranty for all Bay Area customers.

When a local customer purchases a new PhotoPress photobook binding system from us, we include our Saddle Point Systems One Year Local Warranty at no additional charge as described above.
Our San Francisco Bay Area customers can extend their service coverage to two years by purchasing our Saddle Point Systems Extended Performance Guarantee for their PhotoPress for $900. In other words, you're paying for a one year service agreement and getting two years of complete coverage. Like our One Year SPS Warranty, our performance guarantee covers the cost of all parts, labor, travel time and on-site repair. Simply give us a call and one of our technicians will come to your company, usually by the next business day, and service your machine at no additional charge. If we can't fix your PhotoPress on site, we'll leave you a loaner to keep you up and running while we're repairing your machine.
After purchasing the Extended Annual Performance Guarantee, we'll e-mail you our PhotoPress Service Agreement PDF for you to fill out. Then, either fax us a signed copy or mail us a signed hard copy to put the agreement in force. Annual service agreements must be purchased within 30 days of the original invoice date of your PhotoPress System and are not valid unless signed and on file with us.
