how to sell press printed books and heirloom albums
Press Printed Books and Heirloom Albums go hand-in-hand.
Use the Press Printed Book for everyday moments, engagement and sign-in books, or portrait sessions. Heirloom Albums are perfect for telling a story that your client wants to live on forever— weddings, newborn sessions, or any story that they want to pass on to generations to come.
the printing PROCESS
Press printed books are made by printing millions of tiny dots of ink on top of paper. Our heirloom albums use a true photographic printing process. That means that the images are developed into the paper using silver halide and other materials- just like in a darkroom.
From viewing distance, they both look fantastic!

Kiss CEO & Founder
How are the books made?
We don’t build by machine, we craft by hand. Every press printed book is handcrafted and undergoes a four point inspection process before it ever leaves our door. This means you and your clients get nothing but the best. Why is that important? Because your stories are worth it.
What is the turnaround time on press printed books?
We believe your clients memories are important. That’s why we set out to create the best, most high quality press printed book on the market. Our turnaround time is 15 business days. We offer rush options that upgrade your order to a 7 business day turnaround time. Quality can’t be done overnight, that’s why we believe that little extra time makes a world of difference.
How many spreads can I have in one book?
All of our books have a minimum of 10 spreads and a maximum of 40 spreads.
We guarantee everything we make for life. Click here to learn more about our lifetime warranty.
What is the difference between press printed books and photographic printed books?
Press printed books use inkjet printers to print your images. Photographic print uses light to develop your images onto the spread just like the days of using film and darkrooms.
Do you offer debossing?
Not on Press Printed Books. Debossing is available on Heirloom Albums.
Do you offer Press Printed Studio Sample Books?
Yes! They’re 25% off and you can order up to 5 samples per year. Need more than 5? Let us know and we can help!
Do you offer cameos?
Yes! You can order a cameo on all press printed books. You can even order a cameo and engraving on the same book.
Do you offer a 12×12 book?
If you wish to order a 12”x12” book, please consider the 12”x12” Heirloom Album.
Are Kiss books and albums sustainably sourced?
We take great care and pride in producing sustainable products for a better world. Click here to learn about the many ways we prioritize sustainability.
How do I design a Press Printed Book?
We offer a free album designer that you can use from any web browser! Just sign up for a free account and you can begin designing as soon as you are approved. If you don’t want to design, we have a $49 in-house design service that will take it off your hands. It’s only $49 flat and we can even work directly with your client.
I already have a designer that I like. Can I still use that and order from Kiss?
Absolutely! All you need to do is export your spreads and upload them to your Kiss account to order. We even made it easy so you can order any book from the same designs. No need to resize your spreads. Click here to learn more.
What sizes are thin pages?
Press Printed Books use a thin page that is constructed by adhering two spreads back to back. They are thicker than a magazine and still have a sturdy weight to them.
What shipping options are available to me?
We offer FedEx shipping. We accommodate standard, 2-day, and overnight options to many locations. If you would like to require a signature for delivery, just check a box at checkout!
