“We have decades of experience in fine art printing and with a tool like TAOPIX™ we know we have a competitive edge in offering a quality product that others simply can’t.” WHAT IS TAOPIX™ PHOTOBOOK? TAOPIX™ Photobook is a complete, end-to-end photo book platform that contains all the software tools required for a professional photo lab or digital printer to start a photo book business. TAOPIX™ customers have full control over the business model(s) they wish to promote as TAOPIX™ allows user-defined, unlimited branding, product design, templates and pricing; eliminating the need to pay the software manufacturer for additional services. TAOPIX™ Photobook is not just a photo book production solution – the flexibility of the software also allows you to profit from proof books, trader cards, calendars, greeting cards, postcards, posters, photographic prints, T-Shirts, mouse mats and self published books.

WHO BUYS PHOTO BOOKS? The widespread availability of high-speed internet and the massive increase in digital camera use means that anyone who has access to a PC or Mac, an internet connection and digital images is a potential customer so the opportunities are endless! Research into photo merchandise purchasers reveals that approximately 70% of customers are more than likely to return for more products – which means an ever-expanding and loyal customer base for you. It’s also a unique opportunity for you to increase margin by tailoring your product offerings and finishing options.

Baret Lepejian, A&I co-owner, Hollywood USA

TAOPIX™ DESIGNER TAOPIX™ Designer is the ‘front end’ or shop front that the photo book purchaser launches to begin designing their photo book. It’s important for your new customer to be able to create a photo book easily and quickly – which is why TAOPIX™ Designer allows you to create a fully customized and branded customer interface which can be delivered as a download and/or on disk. With TAOPIX’s™ easy-to-use, drag and drop software, the customer can then create any photo gift product from their Mac or PC anywhere in the world. This flexible interface allows you to turn features on and off per application or product – allowing beginners and professionals alike to confidently produce a memorable keepsake.

It also allows your customer to choose their preferred method of payment (credit card, account, cheque or PayPal for example). Once payment has been made, TAOPIX™ Web encrypts the customer file and uploads it securely to your server to be delivered to the production workflow as a print-ready PDF, JPEG or TIFF.
