Your Album Order Form: Matted Albums

This order form is for “matted” albums.   The albums are printed on archival papers, are designed to last and are handmade by one of the finest luxury album manufactures in the world.  Rather than looking “book” like, these albums are more your traditional type of album with photo prints matted to fit the pages.  Your prints are expertly mounted beneath precision-cut bevelled mats of conservation grade.  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.

The Process:

    1. Take a look at this order form page to get an idea of whats available.
    2. Select the images you would like to use for your album.  This can either be done by sharing the images with me on dropbox (selected off your USB), or creating a “favourites” album on your online proofing gallery.  Matted albums can hold up to 120 images.
    3. Complete the form at the bottom of the page and hit submit.  
    4. I’ll send you an invoice confirming your album decisions.  In order to get started with the design process, I do need a payment in full for the album.
    5.  Your images will be sent off  to the graphic designer to design your album.
    6. I’ll send you a link in 7-10 days to your album proofing gallery so you can see the design and decide if you like the placement.  
    7. If you’d like to change anything, you’ll have two rounds of changes.  After that point, there may be an extra cost of if you’d like more rounds. 
    8. Once you’ve signed off on the design, you’re all set!   Your album is on it’s way to be handmade and should be with you in about 30 days!
