RapidStudio Produces Award-Winning Photobooks

RapidStudio is over the moon with our showing in the GAPP awards. The GAPP Awards are the pinnacle of excellence in the South African printing industry, so you can understand why we were excited to be a part of it. These awards encourage professionalism and innovation in printing and are sponsored by the leader in knowledge development, The GAPP Magazine. ‘GAPP’ stands for Graphics, Advertising, Print and Packaging, which feature in all of our everyday lives.

This year was the inaugural ceremony for the GAPP Awards, and they sure put on a spectacular night. We all got dressed to perfection and felt rather fancy in our handsome suits and beautiful gowns. While the celebration was formal, there was no shortage of fun and entertainment. The catering was superb, with so many delicious dishes for us to enjoy.


RapidStudio knows how important framing is to enhance a picture, well; the ballroom at Montecasino certainly made a sublime frame for the perfect evening. Swish tables dressed with silver settings and subtle light stole our breath away.

As the awards were announced, we waited in anticipation. Would we have our moment of glory and recognition? We had to be ever so patient and endure the suspense until the end of the evening. When our categories finally came up—low and behold: RapidStudio were honoured and delighted to win two prizes. Yes indeed, TWO!!! What a scoop. We received gold in “Folding and Finishing” and bronze in “Special Techniques and Finishes”. The RapidStudio team were proud as punch. Tell us what you think on our Facebook post here. 




Bowens – RapidStudio’s parent company – also won an achiever award PLUS another gold. The achiever award was for “Innovation”, where we designed a medical invitation; complete with scalpel opener and layered skins to unveil with a little surgery! The gold award was for "Variable Data Printing" on an amazing personalised magazine cover for Nex Magazine. Check it out here! 


Everyone at RapidStudio wants to shout a big THANK YOU to the amazing organisers of The GAPP Awards, also to the judges who recognised our efforts. We also want to congratulate all the other participants in the evening. We are truly in great company with the high calibre of talent in our profession.

While we’re enjoying our moment of glory, we also won First Prize for “Most Interactive Stand” at the 2016 Photo Film Expo! We’ll add that special honour to our trophy cabinet.

RapidStudio are award-winning leaders in professional printing.

Tip 9 : Aligning and Spacing in Rapidstudio

We often want to create a collage of photo's as a page design. Most of the time we are not totally confident in creating this type of layout in Rapidstudio, as you have to be accurate in your aligning and spacing of pictures. In this tutorial I will be explaining how to create a collage of pictures on a page, as it covers most of the alignment and spacing topics.
I hope this tutorial will help you realise your design intent more accurately and efficiently.
You will probably start with a page layout something similar to this

We are going to start with top row of pictures. The following explanation only refers to the top row, we will be dealing with the rest of the images a bit later.
First of all we need to move the pictures next to each other horizontally to see if they will fit in the "Safe Area" of the page. In this example the pictures are too wide and overlap the safe area horizontally. Please note that you will have to leave a decent amount of space between the safe …

Tip 8: Choosing the right internet acecss for your lifestyle

Choosing the right internet access for your lifestyle

With so many ISPs out there these days, it's difficult to decide what type of access you need and which product will be cost effective and best suit your needs.
In the by-gone days of dial up our internet usage was measured by the amount of time we spent connected, and we all quickly got into the habit of plugging in the modem, quickly connecting, checking our mail doing what little surfing we needed and then before we ran up a huge bill, disconnected and unplugged the modem again - just to make sure.

Now days with the advent of broadband, we're no longer charged by the amount of time we spend online, but instead by the amount of data that we use up. while it's true that the longer you're connected the more likely you are to use more data, most people find it convenient and not too expensive to be connected all the time.

Being connected all the time does however come with some dangers. the chances of picking up unwa…
