Last month, Australia’s first photobook company Momento Pro was honoured with a string of print and publishing awards acknowledging the quality of their on-demand digital printing and bookbinding. The pinnacle was winning both Book of the Year and Australian Book of the Year in the prestigious Galley Club Award series.
Momento Pro produces photobooks for consumers and professionals and this year they made a strategic decision to enter more awards to showcase their quality compared to the many alternatives on the market.
General Manager of Momento Pro, Libby Jeffery said, “Our customers design their photo book then we print and bind them here in Chippendale. Most books are a print run of one, so we use the best materials, we stitch-bind them and quality check every page to ensure they last a lifetime.”
“It’s very satisfying to have our attention-to-detail acknowledged by these awards.” Read all about Momento →
