Funny name huh? They are called Pinchbooks because they literally "pinch" your pages in. This means there is no glue, no punching, and no hassle! The spine is patented and incredibly strong, so don't worry - your photos won't fall out! And you can make an awesome photo book in 5 seconds, flat!
Seriously...check out this Pinchbook video to see it:
Cool, huh?! I love these things! I really did buy them for myself to make some Christmas gifts last year, and I will be doing it again this year because they make an amazing DIY photo gift for the holidays.
OK, so lets' talk about Pinchbooks in a bit more detail.
Pinchbooks are a fun, new, and fast way to make your own photo books without needing any kind of machine or punching tool. They offer easy photo book binding that isn't available in any other product, and are completely unique. They are hard cover photobooks, so they look expensive...but they are not! In fact, they are sold in packs of either 5 or 10 books, so you don';t have to buy a bunch and spend more than you need. They start at only about $2.30 each, so factor in your photo prints, and you have a personalized photo gift for only about $5. Ooooooor you can spend $25-$50 at a photo shop for a single book...but hey, we won't judge.
Here are some written instructions for how to use Pinchbook hard cover photo books:
① Open the covers all the way so they touch
② Insert your sheets or photos into the spine
③ Close the covers & you're done
Yep! It is really that easy, and that fast. Didn't you watch the video? I made a photobook in 5 seconds and with no effort!
