Stunning high quality lookbooks - make your collection standout
A lookbook is a collection of photographs bound in a book or catalogue to show off either a new fashion clothing collection, models and photographers portfolio or other products. Some people refer to them as fashionbooks too.
As lookbooks are a visual device intended to enhance the collection they are showcasing, print quality and the papers that are used are vital to achieving the most professional looking fashion book. In this respect they are not dissimilar to coffee table books – high end and desirable.
Entwistle's customers range from international fashion houses ordering thousands to small retailers or designers and photographers requiring just one. Our customers can choose the print process they prefer: digital or litho and each has their advantages but in general most customers prefer the extra colour vibrancy that our digital presses provide as their print resolution is so high and spot colours can be specified.
Print quality is only half the story, paper quality and finishing also have a major impact on the overall impression of lookbooks.
We offer an extensive range of papers varying in thickness and weight as well as different types of gloss and matts. Covers are an area where creativity can be harnessed to great effect. Choose from paper, cloth, leather and laminated finishes to give a unique and distinctive finish.
Embossing and debossing are available to give covers a raised or sunken feel and can be very effective techniques for enhancing logos.
Where durability is important for example lookbooks that are on display in a showroom environment and are likely to be handled by many different customers then a laminated cover can extend the life of the book significantly by ensuring the cover remains crisp and allows for gentle cleaning of the cover.
Binding is an overlooked part of the finishing process and we offer a range of methods with each offering a different appearance and properties. Choose from staple binding, perfect binding (glue) and screw binding.
Our service levels are unmatched in the industry and we are used to tight deadlines. Large and small orders are equally important to us and we are just as happy printing individulal copies as and when clients need them.
Confidentiality can also be imperative to some of our global fashion houses and with Entwistle Group this is a given.
