Bob Books awarded Best in Test by Digital Camera
- 23rd March 2018
We were delighted to win both the Best in the Test and the Gold Award in Digital Camera Magazine's recent photo book review.
The results were based on the comparison of six highly regarded printers where a landscape-format book was created. Each book contained the same colour and monochrome photos, along with a printer test chart image to expose printing anomalies.
Take a look at the review below.
Here's what they had to say about Bob Books
Bob’s photo book boasts a crisp binding and a printed gloss hardback cover that’s unmatched for colour vibrancy, sharpness and dynamic range.
We opted for Lustre Photographic pages with a lay-flat binding. This costs a reasonable £9 over a 26-page Classic hardback book, and it’s well worth it. The 300gsm paper weight feels more like card, and the lustre finish is sheer class.
Then there’s Bob’s print process, which is a cut above all but Loxley’s. There’s no sign of individual ink droplets, and images are the sharpest there. Colours are vibrant yet accurate, skin tones near-perfect, and monochrome images are free from colour casts. We couldn’t even spot any issues with our tricky printer test pattern image.
Five book design options are available. We went for the slick, easy-to-use online creator tool, but there’s also downloadable software, and iPad app, and even a professional design service.
Verdict: 5 stars
