Cover Materials

COVER MATERIALS

All our albums except Portrait Albums and Musée offer the same cover materials and styles. This page is about the materials. The cover styles page explains how to personalise your albums with embossings, cover motifs, photo fronts or wrap-around.

We are proud of our materials, which we carefully select from the best quality sources around the world — classic choices for the years ahead. Fine silk bookbinding fabrics from Japan … beautiful hides from France and Germany … exceptional faux leathers and more. If you want to show them all to your clients we offer convenient matted swatches for each of the ranges described below (excluding those described as "while stocks last").

Lots of pages? We choose our cover materials to look good for generations, and that's the way we make our albums. If your album will have 25 pages or more we recommend that you choose one of the genuine leather cover materials described above. Genuine leather is best able to support the spine of an album with the weight of so many pages.


Micro Leathers

Micro Leathers are amongst our most popular cover materials – beautiful textures, lovely colours, and vegan-friendly.

Japanese Bookbinding Silks

Beautiful bookbinding silks, delicate and sophisticated, from one of Japan's best mills.

Durability: Silks don't have the strength and durability of some of our other materials, and we strongly suggest keeping silk covers for lighter weight Q-Books, and albums with fewer pages, especially if they’re heavy. We suggest no more than 15 pages (30 sides), although you could go higher with Q-Book lights, or medium weight Pano Flushmounts.
