The creative solution will allow Jamalon’s customers to build and produce personalized photo albums using Taopix’s easy and intuitive bookmaking software – Taopix Photobook Designer.

The easy to use solution will allow customers to leverage their existing social media accounts, such as Facebook and Instagram, to create and build their own timeless photo albums, allowing them to capture and freeze their special memories in a high-quality format.
Ala’ Alsallal, Jamalon’s Founder and CEO, says: “Using our advanced, Dubai-based, Print On Demand facility, Jamalon will be able to immediately manufacture and dispatch the custom built photo albums to our customers across the Middle East.
