One Book—Three Flavors

The Leather KISS

Leather KISSes feature photographic prints bound in full-grain leather covers and a hard substrate between pages. Weighty and resistant to damage, Leather KISSes are perfect for a wedding book.

The Tuscan KISS

Our most refined KISS Book for your most discerning customer. Built like the Leather KISS, but features beautifully distressed leathers, velvety matte paper and the option for a cameo window.

The Linen KISS

Linen KISSes have textured, linen covers and pages that are glued back-to-back (without any material between them). Linen KISSes are thinner and lighter, making them great for portrait, engagement, or sign-in books.

Handmade at Home
True Economic Stimulus
Every KISS Book, dust cover, presentation box, and swatch is made in the United States. Even though KISS could manufacture more cheaply in other countries, we are proud and committed to building in the US. We gain the advantage of being able to closely monitor the quality and service we provide by having our production facility and staff all reside in the US. Equally important, by staying local, we are able to provide jobs for many families, which empowers them and our economy.
Luscious Leather
KISS uses only 100% natural leathers selected for their grains, texture, strength, and quality. Full-grain hides feel better, last longer, and are more attractive than bonded-leather covers. When you get your hands on a Leather KISS, you may be tempted to brush your cheek against the supple cover. Go for it; we cheek-test every book before it leaves our lab.
Lovely Linen
Linen provides you and your clients with a light, textured, animal-friendly option to cover your KISSes. Our linens highlight the true hand-made nature of your KISS Books. Since Linen KISSes are cheaper than their leather siblings, they make a great option for family sessions, senior portraiture, or sign-in books.
Color Me Simple

One for every mood.

KISS Books come in ridiculously good-looking colors that were hand-picked by some special KISSers: the Grovers, the Grays, the Youngrens, Leeann Marie, KT Merry, and Mike Larson. A wide range of beautiful, sophisticated, and modern colors enable you to provide just the right match for your clients’ needs.

Size Matters

How big of a KISS do you want?

There’s the cuter-than-kittens Little KISSes, coming in at a petite 4x4.
The 8x8s make for great parent books. The 10x10 is perfect for
any occasion. If you want big impact, you go 12x12. Opened, the
24x12" prints will feature your photography spectacularly.

Since all our books are square,
your single design will fit
any size you order.

Tiny Billboards

Small is huge.

With the 4" Little KISS, your customer can rave about you while showing a mini-copy of her album from her purse.
Give them something to talk about—
give Little KISSes.
The Art of Printing and Binding

Only the best.

Press-printed books work for prosumers, but our clients’ reputations are on the line when they are delivering albums and we take that seriously, which is why we decided that every book we make, from the 4" to the 12", is made with true photographic printing on the finest Fuji Crystal Archival paper.

Don’t miss a thing.

Our pages lay beautifully flat, so you don’t lose any of the image in an unsightly fold. Each spread can be presented in all of its glory due to our modern binding and block-building processes.

Cutting is for Cookies.

A beautiful layout shouldn’t be cut down the middle; even the smallest cut is distracting. KISS builds all of our spreads with a micro-fold, preserving the full impact of your design. Bending a photograph usually results in damaging the print. That’s why we developed a unique micro-fold that prevents our prints from discoloring in the crease.

KISS has perfected an industry-leading micro-fold that prevents discoloration in the crease.
Delivered with a KISS

Tell them you care with bags and boxes.

Each KISS Book is delivered with its very own swank, sexy, cloth dust-covers. If you want to go the extra mile for your customers, an optional presentation box can be purchased at checkout. With our 15-day (standard) and 7-day (rush) turnaround times, you’ll never wait long to be KISSed.
Our packaging is simple and reusable.

We’ve Got Your Back

Rest Easy.

KISS Books are warrantied for life. If there’s a manufacturer’s defect, we will rapidly repair or replace it at no cost to you. Shaun and Kevin, the founders, are both heavily involved in day-to-day operations; they will make sure you —and your customers— are taken care of.

Everything we do at KISS is designed to save you time so you can get back to doing things more important than clicking a mouse. If you have any ideas of ways we can improve, let us know.
