JAMPhoto, the pioneer in Sri Lanka for digitally printed photo books won the award for the ‘Best Digital Printed Items’ at ‘Collate 2016’ – the print industry exhibition, conference and awards organised by the Sri Lanka Association of Printers.
The award was in respect of a photo book produced by JAMPhoto, the company that broke new ground in the local photo imaging market three years ago when it commenced operations as Sri Lanka’s first specialist photo book producer, using a sophisticated HP Indigo Digital Press. “The category in which we competed was open to an extensive range of digitally printed items, not just photo books,” JAMPhoto Chairman & CEO Ashan Abeyesundere said.
“We are therefore delighted to win this award, which is a testament to the quality and creativity of our products, as well as to the future potential of the company.” A member of Papyrus Corporation, JAMPhoto has a 4,000 square foot facility in Bambalapitiya which offers wedding photographers, designers, event organisers and virtually anyone who wishes to produce an elegant Photo Book, the expertise to do so.
