Mar 16, 2010 (04:03 PM EDT)

A Great Value for Customers Looking to Buy Multiple Copies of Books for Special Events

PALO ALTO, Calif., March 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Picaboo (, creator of the premier application for making, sharing and buying high-quality photo books, today announced the launch of its Large Custom Softcover photo book, adding to the company's growing collection of unique book styles.   The new 8.5" x 11" size joins the Medium 6" x 8" Custom Softcover book, a popular choice with Picaboo customers.  Similar to an artist-series paperback coffee table book, the Large Custom Softcover is a stylish option at an affordable price - ideal for purchasing in quantities for special events.  


Key product features of the Large Custom Softcover book style include:

  • The option to use any photo, layout, caption and background for the cover design;
  • A flexible, glossy cover made from durable 100-lb cover stock;
  • Interior pages made of 100-lb acid-free, archival-quality text paper stock - similar to what would be found in a fine art or coffee table book.

"Our customers asked for a book style option that is more casual than the Custom Hardcover photo book at a price point that is conducive to large quantity orders," said Howard Field, co-CEO of Picaboo.  "The Custom Softcover option is the perfect choice for team sports books, wedding party favors, travel companion gifts and philanthropy donor-appreciation books."

The Large Custom Softcover books start at $24.99 for a 20-page book, and more pages can be added for an extra cost.  With book styles ranging from the entry level $9.99 Classic Softcover books to the luxurious full-grain leather Flush Mount albums starting at $349.99, Picaboo has the broadest range of quality photo book styles available for sale direct to consumers.
