I’m SO excited about the new products I just started offering – these gorgeous, hand-made folios and albums! I’ve been working towards offering this company’s matted albums of a similar style for a short while, under the name “the Pacific Album”, and now I think I am going to move towards using mostly Cypress for my albums. All of their work is handmade, beautifully done up in Japanese bookbinding fabrics and Swiss ribbons, and are just SO elegant and fabulous. Each folio and matted album is custom made with your choice of colors, and they seem very accomodating in customizing orders. Let’s let the photos speak for themselves:
The ribbons are hypnotically shiny and beautiful, and the silk covers and soft, creamy pages make me want to reach into these photos and touch them! I am definitely ordering some of these for my own Christmas presents… and my own wedding photos!
The Folios come in a variety of sizes and can hold up to 1-4 images. The DIY Pacific Albums, which are the latter images shown, come blank with a small window on the cover as well as acid-free fine art paper. You can then have me lay out and mount the photos of your choice, or (if you’re crafty) you can do it yourself with any archival scrapbook or album materials you like.
These are made from the highest end materials, and are definitely an heirloom product that parents, grandparents, and other loved ones will adore! I wrote in the product description that my great grandparents and grandparents had something like this made of their portraits and wedding day, and it’s true… and obviously quite memorable. It’s something so simple but so elegant, that people are really struck by them, and I can tell that they will be a big hit with clients.
There’s still a bit of time to order these in time for the holidays, so let me know if you’re interested! Also in these same fabrics and by the same company are custom-matted albums, beautiful custom presentation boxes, and (coming soon), full bleed flush-mounted albums!
