Album options

Why invest in an album?

And yes, it is an investment. The albums I offer are not only beautiful, they are top quality – made to last for year and years –  to be used and enjoyed. It will be one of your most treasured items – only increasing its value with time.

You will love the album when you first open it, but imagine yourself in 10, 20 or even 50 years – looking back on your life today – you will enjoy seeing the memories, the love, your present style vs your style then. I assure you will love the album even more then.

When you buy an album from me, you get so much more than simply a book for your bookshelves:

  • You get the design done for you professionally – saves you a lot of time.
  • Your memories are preserved in a way a digital file never could. The album will last you a lifetime, and will even be there when you are gone. A digital image will turn corrupt at some point. Only printed images are archival.
  • Your memories are tangible and easily enjoyed.
  • You get a customized and unique product – one that fits YOUR style and preferences only.
  • And last, but not least – a rather important thing for most of my clients; you get the digital files of the images used in the album complimentary. It’s a buy one, get two deal.

Decisions, decisions…

Before you can order the album that’s perfect for YOUR needs, there are some decisions to make:

  • Do you prefer thick or thin pages?
  • Do you want fabric or leather cover?
  • Do you want text on the cover and if yes what should it say and what design should it be?
  • Do you want an image on the cover?
  • Do you want text on the spine?
  • Do you want few or many images in the album? (many means smaller images, few means larger images – maybe one per page)
  • Do you want a title page in the album? (Title page is the first page when you open the album – you can add text like names and the date of the session – or maybe a quote)

Below are some of the options you can choose from.


Photo album LUXE

This beautiful album has thick layflat pages and can be ordered in 3 different sizes; SMALL, MEDIUM and LARGE. The smallest album is 20×20 cm, the largest 30×30

For the cover you can choose between the lush velvet fabric (BAKUMA) and vintage style linnen (IC).

The albums with BAKUMA fabric have the extra option of text on the spine. This option is not possible with any other fabric or leather option. Please note that some of the colors look a bit different to what they look like in real life. That will always be the case with colors seen on the web. Once you’ve chosen your favorite colors on this page, we can talk them through, so you have an even better idea of what the color will be like on the finished product.

These leather-like fabrics look so much like real leather, that you don’t really need the real alternatives. Your can between choose the vintage style UBON, which has a beautiful structure/texture – and the more classical and smooth DaVinci in dark or light brown. You can see samples of both types in the “Inspiration” section. Please note that albums with the UBON fabric can have no text (or images) on the cover or spine.

If you want text on the cover, you can choose between embossing and UV print. Embossing are letters stamped into the fabric and you can add color to the letters or leave them as is. Without color added it will be less noticable. The UV print is always black and is printed ontop of the fabric. It is not adviced for darker fabrics as it will not be noticable. See the following “UV print options” section to see the different designs you can choose from.

These are the designs you can choose from for your UV printed cover. The print will always be in black. UV print looks beautiful on the lighter colored linnen fabrics. See a sample of an album with UV print in the “inspiration” tab to the right – the green album (which is actually the color called IC21)

Do you wish to have text on the spine of the album? This is possible with the BAKUMA fabric only.

If you want a photo on the cover (also possible without text), your choice of album would have to be one with with thick pages and linnen fabric cover. The photo is printed on acrylic (looks and feels like glass) which is encorporated into the cover (not glued ontop of cover). See pink album below:


Photo book – Family

The family photo book has thin and flexible pages; luxurious matte Fine-art paper. The pages are lay-flat, and each page is glued and mounted individually. It has a different binding than the LUXE photo album. Please see images in “Inspiration” section for details. The photo book can only be ordered with vintage style linnen fabrics (IC) and UV printed text.

Below are the vintage style linnen fabrics (IC) color options you can choose from.

 Please note that some of the colors can look a bit different to what they look like in real life. That will always be the case with colors seen on the web as every screen is different. Once you’ve chosen your favorite colors on this page, we can talk them through, so you have an even better idea of what the color will be like on the finished product.

If you want text on the cover, these are the designs you can choose from. The UV print will always be in black. UV print looks beautiful on the lighter colored linnen fabrics. See a sample of an album with UV print with UV DESIGN 42 below and in the “inspiration” tab to the left. The color/fabric of this album (green) is called IC21.


The minialbum

The minialbum is a nice option to gift to grandparents or friends. It’s also perfect for children to look through, because of the small size and the thick solid pages.

The pages are thick, solid and layflat, printed with lustre photopaper. The cover is either white leather imitation or light brown linnen. It’s delivered with a solid, white carton cover with text.

The size of the album is 20x15cm (always horizontal orientation) and it has 10 thick pages. Depending on the design, it can fit from 10 to 40 (very small) images (my personal preference is to use between 17-20 photos). This sample album have 17 photos.

Choose between these two color options for the minialbum:
