Pina Zangaro Custom Albums

Vista Mist, Color ImprintOur neighbors in San Francisco, Pina Zangaro, have always pushed the envelope in material use and innovation. They developed a new technology for Color Imprinting names and logos in blazing 1200 ppi full-spectrum digital UV color on most of their books, boxes and cases. The possibilities are endless – photographs and any digital image can customize your portfolio. They can also Laser Etch any artwork on all of the aluminum, acrylic and wood products by removing a thin outer layer of material. For instance, on a bamboo book, the bamboo can be etched away to reveal your design in the aluminum backing. Did we say the possibilities are endless? Come in-store to see the options and we'll walk you through the process.
