Albums Choices…

Here you will find samples of the two different types of albums I currently offer.

Both albums are equally hand crafted beautiful products of the highest quality… you really need to see these in person to appreciate them fully, but I understand that’s not always possible.

 

Jorgensen Albums

First up is the classic more traditional style of album… the 12″ Jorgensen Art Album……  these are hand-made in Australia, but the prints are printed in the best pro lab in the UK, using a traditional wet chemical process (i.e real photographs) printed onto a lustre paper  – halfway between a gloss and a matt finish. The albums are then meticulously constructed here for the final phase.

Any print spanning the spine / gutter needs to be cut as it’s a real photograph… they will just crack if bent. 013014015Flip out pages can also be added to these albums too.016017018

http://www.swpm.net/products/jorgensen_albums/pro_collection/art_albums/   – here are some further samples though some are in a different sizes too, but you can get a taste of all the available page & cover options too.

You have more covering options with these albums and the matt/page colour is usually black or white etc…… but these finer options can be chosen later on once the design is complete.

You can see one of my complete sample layout here…… 12×12″ – 60 images.

Fine Art Books

Then next up is our latest book type album which has a more modern & contemporary style…… the 12″ Original Fine Art Album by Vision Art made in the USA.

The photos/pages have a really nice archival matt finish to them and thickness of the page is like a thin bendy card. They mainly work with a full photo cover, but they also have some optional lush new leather covers too…… which again can be all decided upon at a later time.

As the photos are Giclée printed straight onto the page and because of the binding technique employed it allows you to do a big panoramic image across 2 pages over the seam (gutter) of the page without any detrimental effect to the photo. Whereas the traditional album you have to cut the print if you want do a panoramic image/layout (see above).

There isn’t a right or wrong answer here, neither is better – both are top notch industry leading albums (I only choose the very finest companies to work with!)  and both have the wow factor!…… they are just different, that’s all.

One uses traditional type prints constructed into the page, the other is printed within the page…… the second option can fit more in, because the photos are printed onto the page rather than constructed into. Both albums open out perfectly flat too.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask me.

Many thanks…… Ben
