Graphistudio GoBook  
These elegant books feature a lay-flat continuous binding, photographic paper and board linings. Available in seven sizes—in vertical, horizontal and square formats—they’re printed on photographic paper with 20-60 sides. The optional handmade GoBox, with its see-through cover, is the perfect complement to the GoBook. Crafted in Italy, lead time is ten days or less and shipping is only $15. Prices start at $99 for the GoBook and $39 for the GoBox.

Miller’s Lab Custom Wood USB Drives & Boxes
Lovely to look at, these wood USB drives and print boxes (available separately or as a set) are a great combo for delivering images to your clients. We especially like the uniquely shaped USB drives, which come in 8GB or 16GB capacities. Both the USB drive and the box can be custom-printed with an image or your logo for the perfect pairing. Prices start at $60 for the wood print box and USB drive.

ACI Econo Vinyl Banner  
Perfect for trade shows and other events when you want to advertise and promote your business, ACI’s Econo Vinyl Banners are affordable and perfect for single and large quantity orders. The banners feature four-color printing on durable 13-ounce vinyl with a matte finish. Choose from 28 different sizes ranging from 12 x 18 to 48 x 144 inches, with or without a heat-sealed hem and/or grommets. An optional stand is also available for displaying the banner and two-day shipping is only $11—a real bargain. Banner prices go from $7to $72.

Bay Photo Xpozer 
Float images away from the wall with the innovative and easy-to-assemble Xpozer hanging system. Xpozer comes with a 12-color print on Vivid Satin material so all you need to do is unroll the print, attach the tension bars to the print’s four mounting corners and the photo is ready to hang. Additional Xchange prints, ordered separately, can be swapped out on the same frameless hanging system. Available in 22 sizes from 16 x 16 inches to 40 x 80 inches.

AdoramaPix Hexagon Metal Prints 
AdoramaPix has added an exciting new option to its metal prints. These hexagon shapes are great alone or when arranged in a group. Vibrant colors and excellent detail reproduction are hallmarks of these metal prints, which are offered in a trio of sizes, (7 x 8, 9.5 x 11 and 13 x 15 inches). Choose from four finishes—glossy white, white satin, glossy silver or silver satin—and an assortment of mounts, or no mount at all. 

Circle Graphics Easel-Back Canvas Wraps  
Canvas wraps aren’t just for wall hangings anymore. Since these wraps come with an easel leg, as well as hinged hanging hardware, your clients have a choice of how the images are displayed. Available in three sizes, with a 0.5-inch wrap, these wraps come in 5 x 7-inch, 6 x 6-inch and 8 x 10-inch versions. Images are printed on the same artist-grade, archival poly-cotton blend as the company’s 1.25-inch canvas wraps.

Pacific Mount Pressure Sensitive Wall Mounts 
Sold in packs of six, these 3/4-inch thick wall mounts have a pressure-sensitive front for quick and easy print mounting. Available in a dozen sizes, from 8 x 8 inches to 24 x 30 inches, edge finishes complete the modern look in black, white, gold, silver or maple. Hanging is equally easy thanks to pre-drilled holes in the back. Sold in sets of six.

Simply Color Lab Album Blocks 
A great alternative for clients who want the option to change the images on display, these album blocks accommodate 10 or 20 styrene-mounted prints that can be easily rotated from one to another. Prints are available in 5 x 7, 8 x 8 or 8 x 10-inch sizes with a complementary block base in black, white, brown stain or natural wood—with or without direct printing for a personal touch.

H&H Color Lab Holiday Foil Cards 
With the holidays just around the corner, it’s time to start planning for the upcoming season.

Acrylic Press Clear Frame Wall Art 
With these stunning clear frames, you’ll get a vibrant acrylic print over a transparent piece of crystal clear acrylic for a sleek, modern look. Standard and custom sizes are available, including a 12 x 16-inch image on a 16 x 20-inch clear acrylic frame or a 16 x 20-inch image on a 20 x 24-inch clear acrylic frame, with a wire or French Cleat box hanger. Add even more class with an optional bevel.

WhiteWall Direct Print on Wood 
Just announced at Photokina, WhiteWall is now offering prints directly on beautiful birch wood. Available in natural wood where the grain becomes part of the image or whitewashed glaze for brighter colors and less wood texture, these lovely prints are available with rounded or cornered edges and are ready to hang. In addition to sizes from 4 x 4 inches to 40 x 30 inches, custom sizes are available as well.
