CeWe Introduces New Professional Photo Book Design Service

Professional Designers Create Custom Photo Books for Consumers, at Just $1 Per Page

FARMINGDALE, NY – February 4, 2010– CeWe Color, the European leader in photo book production with more than 3.6 million books printed in 2009 – announced today their new SmileBooks photo book design service. This service provides customers with a professional personal designer who creates a fully customized photo book using just a few minutes of the customer’s own time, all for about $1 per photo book page.

CeWe innovates yet again with introduction of photo book design service. Now every SmileBooks customer can have a visually stunning photo book made by a professional in 48 hours. Through the SmileBooks design service, photo books are custom designed by actual people; a story editor and a professional photo book designer, who edit the story line and individually create every page resulting in an emotionally compelling photo book. The professional designer is able to effectively leverage all the capabilities of CeWe’s award- winning photo book software to create a coffee table showpiece. No two custom designed photo books are ever the same.

In addition to the award-winning SmileBooks desktop software and the SmileBooks online photo book builder, the SmileBooks design service is another incredibly simple way to order a photo book. The SmileBooks design service is attractively priced at $29.95 for up to 26 pages. This impressive price point is achieved thanks to an innovative platform combining CeWe’s award winning photo book design software with ScanCafe’s infrastructure and team of highly trained graphic designers.

To use the SmileBooks design service, a customer selects a few basic style preferences, chooses the size of the finished photo book and uploads the photos. Within 48 hours, a story editor and a professional designer select the best photos from among those uploaded, arrange them into a narrative flow, remove red-eye, artistically design the photo book and send the draft SmileBook to the customer for review. At that point the customer may ask for design changes, add captions, give final approval and order printing of the SmileBook. The customer doesn’t pay anything upfront, and only pays for the design when 100% satisfied and ready to print the book.

Dominic Brenzinski, General Manager USA of SmileBooks said, "Our new SmileBooks design service is perfect for those who don't have the time or think they don’t have the creative abilities to make an artistic photo book themselves, but still want to preserve their precious memories in a personalized SmileBook. Anybody who has ever returned from a family vacation with hundreds of digital photos, will appreciate just how easy it finally is to get a fantastic photo book created with almost no work at all. My favorite feature of our new design service is the Photo Selection Service which allows customers to upload as many images as they want and utilize a professional story teller to select the best shots."

The SmileBooks design service includes:

  • 100% risk free trial - no design fees until the book is ordered
  • A range of photo book styles and moods to choose from
  • Optional Photo Selection Service – let the professional story teller choose the best photos
  • The ability to fully review the work online, add caption and provide feedback directly to the personal SmileBooks designer
  • A large variety of different SmileBook sizes and cover types.
