You wouldn’t believe how excited I was when this arrived earlier this week! It’s the culmination of several days work putting together some of my favourite shoots from 2012 into a portfolio album that I can use as a sample. I’ve been looking for a supplier of fine art albums for some time and finally decided to go with Folio Albums as their attention to detail is unsurpassed by anything else I’ve seen.

The moment you remove the outer packaging you know you have a special product in your hands. Each album comes in a sturdy presentation box made from recycled board.
Inside the box the album is protected by a bag made from natural unbleached cotton. It’s also possible to  have a lovely printed bag for a small surcharge.
There is a choice of cover and colour options – leather, silk, plain cotton or photo printed cotton. The cover can also be embossed with names etc. I really like the fact that the albums are printed and hand bound in the UK. I know this will be a quality product and that I can easily speak to real people to check on its progress.
I’ve ordered many high quality photo books but this fine art printing is in a league of its own.  The images have a vibrancy and clarity that traditional photographic prints cannot achieve. The 200gsm matte white art paper has a lovely soft texture.
Each double page spread opens out flat with an almost invisible crease so that each image is on full view. This also allows a single image to be spread across two pages without losing any of it in the binding.
These beautiful albums are available in 4 different sizes – all square –  6″x6″, 8″x8″, 10″x10″ and 12″x12″. The minimum number of pages is 30 (15 double page spreads).
I can’t wait to start showing this album to clients. They are the perfect way for people to enjoy and share their images for years to come. Albums were once reserved just for weddings but as we move away from the traditional photographic prints and photo albums, fine art albums are becoming increasingly popular for all sorts of special occasions – to celebrate the birth of a baby, or baby’s first year, a family photo shoot, a christening or special birthday or anniversary.
If you would like to find out more, see this beautiful sample album and arrange a shoot please get in touch for a no obligation chat. Call Jane on 07868 750505 or email jane@picture-it-big.co.uk
