Pinchbooks are awesome new photobooks that you can make in less than 5 seconds. Just print your photos, open the book all the way so the covers touch, put your photos into the spine, and close the covers again. The spine is patented and incredibly strong, also allowing for quick editing and adding to your photo albums. Great for DIY'ers and for print shops that need to offer a quick print solution for customers.
