MATTED ALBUM

Our modern, luxury take on a classic.

Our modern, luxury take on a classic.

Our handcrafted Matted Albums elevate the traditional album form to a new level with the same quality and attention to detail as our Fine Art Books.

Your prints are expertly mounted beneath precision-cut bevelled mats of conservation grade. Each aperture becomes a window through which the viewer can take time to fully appreciate images in turn. Each page consists of six, hand assembled, layers, measuring a substantial 2.5mm in thickness. The albums lie flat and are trimmed flush for a perfect finish.

Framed to perfection...

In these albums, the bevelled mats create an enticing frame for each photo. This does mean your images can’t go across the crease like they can in our Fine Art Book. But it’s a constraint that encourages a timeless look and feel that’s very elegant.

When it comes to our albums, we want the finished result to look sublime. Be inspired by the colour of bridesmaids’ dresses, flowers, or the season itself.

Something for everyone. Choose the perfect material from a large range including genuine leather, fabric, silk as well as vegan friendly covers.

Please note that swatch colours are a guide and may vary from actual material colour. Swatches can be ordered from our online shop.

PAPERS

We are specialists in high definition fine art printing, producing the highest quality print through carrying out extensive research to optimise the marriage of pigment-based inks with a variety of fine art papers.

Matted Albums are available in a choice of 3 fine art papers; Art White, Canson Infinity Rag and Gallery Pearl.

Art White and Canson Infinity Rag both have a completely matte finish whilst Gallery Pearl, being a baryta-based paper, has a subtle pearlescent finish.

ENDPAPERS

Endpapers are the very first and very last two pages of a book, one side of which is fixed directly to the front and back cover. We have a wide range of endpaper colours to choose from to either tie-in or contrast with your cover or images.

The large majority of our endpapers are a solid block colour, however Polished Pearl, Golden Sand and Grey Quartz contain a hint of sparkle.

The front bottom right or back bottom right endpaper can be personalised with a studio logo or bespoke motif in gold or silver foil debossing.


Please note that the swatch images below are for illustrative purposes only and should not be used as an accurate colour reference. Physical swatches are available from our shop.

PERSONALISATION

PERSONALISATION

Stand out from the rest with innovative personalisation

Small details mean a lot. We’ve significantly expanded our personalisation techniques so we can offer greater flexibility with no compromise on quality.

Want to add names, dates, your studio logo, or even bespoke emblems of the happy couple’s initials? Our techniques for covers and boxes include time-honoured methods such as debossing & foiling, through to modern laser engraving and state-of-the-art printing. If our standard fonts don’t meet your requirements, we can offer bespoke fonts.

PRESENTATION OPTIONS

PRESENTATION OPTIONS

Opening a box full of promises appeals to the child in all of us

When your clients receive their album, it’s one last chance for a big reveal that echoes the excitement of their special day. As standard, we present each Matted Album in a natural cotton wrap that not only looks great it keeps it clean and dust-free. This is then placed inside a high quality Kraft cardboard box. For extra impact and a lovely keepsake, you can upgrade to an elegant handmade Clamshell box or a beautiful Bamboo box.

MINI COPIES

Small but perfectly formed books that make lovely gifts

Our Mini Copies of Matted Albums have exactly the same photography and quality as the main album but they’re produced as Fine Art Books. This means the images are printed directly onto the page with no overlaid bevelled matts (there’s no need to redesign your work for this though).

It’s a really nice way for your clients to thank family and friends with something that allows them to relive the day again and again.

Mini Copies are available in all the same covers as larger sizes, so you can coordinate with your main album if you wish.
