Overlay Matted Albums
Overlay Matted Albums
Matted albums turn your images into art, individually framing each photo with respect and attention to detail. Overlay Matted is a contemporary take on the classic, offering clean-edge pages and a wide range of printing methods and paper stocks. Page design is simple but flexible, and there are plenty of ways to upgrade and customise the finished product. This is a quick overview. For more, please follow the links in the Details section below.
11 sizes and shapes from 8x8 to 18x12 — square, portrait and landscape — in all our cover materials and cover styles.
Multiple page and printing options: Prints are mounted 'overlay' style on to a core page, with a mat laid over and covering the print edge. Overlay Matted albums offer clean cut edges (no edging or corners). You can include up to 30 pages (60 sides). The prints can be:
• True Photographic Lustre (silver halide), our most popular.
• Offset-printed Smooth Matte, Tintoretto, and Satin.
Design Notes: If you specify True Photographic Lustre paper or Smooth Matte you will be able to add full bleed (un-matted) sides to your album design, but not Satin or Tintoretto, as these may be susceptible to scuffing against an opposing mat.
Page Colour: Available with ivory or black mats, and ivory or black core pages.
Included in the price: Door to door shipping world-wide, to your studio or direct to your client. Extra charges may apply for drop-shipping outside your country of residence. Our albums are presented in a soft velvet bag and silk-screened presentation box.
Optional extras include personal, Studio and Companion embossing, personal translucent titles, copy albums (parent albums), and packaging upgrades (designer album boxes, display boxes and carry cases).
Services: If you wish, we can design and colour correct your albums for you.
Follow this link to see the service times for each album type. Please treat the times as estimates. Queensberry products are hand-made, and the volume of orders varies week to week and seasonally, which means production times can change. You can track progress on individual orders through your Workspace account.
Once your account is approved, log in to Workspace and click “Buy” in the main navigation, then “Books and Albums". You’ll be taken through a step-by-step process to place your order, including selecting the cover material, embossing options and extras, and uploading the image files. You can also ask us to design the album for you, or you can design it yourself in Workspace. Find out more.
Our albums come in a soft grey suede-like bag and beautiful silk-screened presentation box. Depending on the size, we also offer Carry Cases, Display Boxes and Designer Boxes as optional upgrades. (Carry Cases are highly practical for carrying your sample albums from place to place.) Boxes and carry cases must be ordered with the original album, and cannot be purchased independently.
Our albums are printed and handmade by our lab technicians and craftspeople in Auckland, New Zealand.
All our albums feature the same cover materials and styles — it's on the inside that they're different. Click through to read more about the different ways you can personalise an album.
We offer a unique range of cover materials from around the world.

“I CAN NOT express my gratitude enough, for the ABSOLUTELY OUTSTANDING customer service and product quality.I received my albums today, much earlier than I expected to receive them, and in time to take to the Wedding Open Day on Sunday. And they are absolutely beautiful. You have my loyalty and my sincere appreciation. ”

“There are not enough words to express my gratitude and happiness when it comes to Queensberry. I loved their albums from the first time I set my eyes on them, they are exactly what I have been looking for when it comes to beautiful design, craftsmanship, elegance and a timeless beauty. I recently had to do an album very quickly for a client's anniversary and their team members were amazing and helped me to customize it exactly how my client wanted it. I knew that she would be wowed and in awe when it was sent directly to her and I was at ease knowing I didn't have to check over the finished product. Queensberry is a classy company with outstanding products. I couldn't recommend them more. Thank you Queensberry. ”
“Our brides absolutely love Queensberry's wedding albums, it gives a luxury feel using the top quality materials. The album design software is easy to use and constantly improving. Great customer service. Simply upload client's photos to the online gallery, clients can share & download + select their favourite images to be putting to their album, and Queensberry team will handle the rest until DHL deliver the album to anywhere in the world. This is awesome!”
