KIS Photo-Me Group premiered their Photobook Maker Kiosk at PMA 2009 and earned the 2009 TIPA Award for Best Kiosk. KIS’s latest kiosk allows retailers to offer their photo consumers an on-demand solution for personalized photo book creation. Users simply insert a memory card into the kiosk, then select and organize their photos as desired. The Photobook Maker automatically prints, glues and binds a fully composed 8”x5.7” photo book on glossy paper in merely 4-10 minutes depending on the length of the album. As the demand for photo gifts continues to rise, the immediacy of the Photobook Maker arms retailers with a solution that is an excellent compliment to traditional kiosks that enable retail customers to order photobooks for pick up at a later date or time.
