To us, an album is a purchase that matters. A personal treasure about a special moment in time. To enjoy, to share and to pass on. But in a changing world we understand that not everyone wants a grand album, and that for many of us our tastes and lifestyles have moved towards “smaller is better”.
That’s why we’ve been focusing on how our product range can accommodate this trend ... and re-imagining our Portrait Album. We've taken the good parts of that range (streamlined workflow, simple unbundled offering, competitive pricing, fast delivery) and brought new ideas to the table, with the focus still on small, intimate delights.
New Name: Our Portrait Album is now the “ Studio Album”. A streamlined option for your studio, with a high focus on customisation, simplicity and workflow.
Two new sizes: the new 12x9 vertical fits perfectly in your arms. Familiar, like a magazine. The 9x9 is 25% bigger than the 8x8 but still allows for a square, offset printed album that is creased, not cut, at the spine.
New paper options: We're introducing a beautiful new offset-printed matt paper, which gives the beauty of our Fine Art (inkjet) prints, but significantly less delicate and more affordable. Note: this new stock will be in short supply for the next 3-4 weeks, so your order may be delayed.
Page weights: Our pages have always been sturdier than others on the market (our heavy panos are double what some others call “heavy”!) So in Studio Albums we’re offering a new thin page (1.1mm, illustrated) as well as medium (1.75mm).
Number of pages: Up to 60 thin pages (120 sides) or 45 medium (90 sides). If you’re ordering albums with less than 15 pages we recommend the medium weight.
