Well, perhaps mentioning Christmas the week after Labor Day is stretching the season a bit… Still, I wanted to make sure everyone knew about the great albums and prints available this year!
The albums I offer are through Couture Books. These albums are truly unique works of art, and you can view a catalog of the styles and fabric covers by going to their website HERE.
Each book is handmade by master craftspeople in the USA utilizing old-world binding techniques to ensure that every album will last generations. Indeed, each album carries with it a lifetime guarantee on the binding and workmanship. The albums are 100 pages in length with the possibility of showcasing more than one photo per page. Sizes range anywhere from a handheld petite 6”x6” square to a coffee table-sized 12”x15”.
If a full album isn’t your speed but you still crave a Barnes & Noble-worthy book of memories, try a press book! Offered through Blurb Books, the press books are printed on premium paper with archival-quality binding. A dust jacket is included with each press book, and each book is 100 pages in length.
Finally, don’t forget about archival prints, ranging in size from the perfect 4”x6” for your desk to an impressive 16”x20” for your living room. Print packages are a great value starting at just $100.
And while you have plenty of shopping days left until the holidays, the turnaround time for albums is generally eight weeks from the day the album is sent to the printer. That means in order to have your album in time for mid-December, you would need to place your order by mid-October. No pressure, really.
