What’s the most important part of an album? Your photography and how it’s presented!
That’s why for a while now our primary focus has been on pages … more page types … more and better printing options … album design and proofing tools.

Here's what's new…
More standard (text) embossing options
We now have five fonts to choose from. When you order in Workspace, simply select one and supply the text you want to emboss.
If you send us artwork instead of text you can personalise covers with your own graphics and/or fonts. In fact we’ve been custom embossing for almost 40 years. What’s changed is the system — now far simpler, more predictable and affordable. The cost depends on the size of the artwork. Prices start the same as for standard embossing, but you can emboss up to 147x110mm (almost 6x4in) at extra cost. Take a little time to understand how it works and you’ll be blown away by what you create.

Laser engraving marks the surface of the cover, and you can create super-intricate designs on suitable materials, like our Buckram covers and Driftwood linen. Even better, you can engrave up to half the front cover for the same cost as a standard embossing.

If you request the same embossing on more than one product we'll charge you a reduced fee after the first. Products must be ordered at the same time. Excludes laser engraving.
Important - before you start
For practical reasons we cannot emboss or laser engrave all our cover materials. Please check out our online cover swatches to see what you can do.
Not all artwork or fonts are suitable for embossing or foiling — for example, fine detail, most photographic images and anything that cannot be rendered as black on white. We will advise if your artwork is not suitable. Click here for artwork guidelines, file specifications and help.
