My Sample Folio Wedding Album ~ Fine Art Beauty & Eco Friendly too!

I was so excited when a big box arrived on my doorstep a few weeks ago – my beautiful FOLIO sample album had landed and wow…. what a work of art!  The craftmanship is next to none, the print quality exceptional and the finish on the album is just sublime.  I chose the duck egg blue leather cover (called jade) and treated myself to a sumptious fabric sleeve too in bright stripes & polka dots.  You’ll notice some of the pages are quite busy – that’s on purpose!  Weddings are busy days with so much going on, so much happening in such a short space of time so I like to reflect this in my album designs – that way you get to pick more photos to be showcased too!

Here’s just a little bit of what folio write on their website about their amazing product:

“Folio Albums are made in the UK using a combination of traditional methods and the latest materials, technology and techniques.  Folio Albums have a quality matte finish with a vibrancy and clarity that traditional photographic prints and albums can’t match. Hand bound and encased in fine, natural leather, they open out flat with an almost invisible crease, so each image is on full view. We work hard to create beautiful albums which is why each album is handmade and quality checked throughout the process. We’re confident you and your clients will love the end result”.  {hell yeah!!}

“Our paper is recycled or bought from sustainable sources wherever possible, and we use environmentally friendly packaging that protects your albums while keeping waste to a minimum.  Your album will be wrapped in a sleeve made from natural, unbleached cotton and then carefully placed in a sleek keepsake box made from recycled materials”.  {that’s where I upgraded to the stripes and polka dot sleeve}…

“We all want to be a bit greener, don’t we?  We’ll make your album in the UK using as many local suppliers as we can to cut down the jet fuel used to bring it to you. Our pigment based printing process uses less toxic chemicals than traditional photographic prints and there is less waste.  Once your album is ready we’ll ship it to you using UPS’s carbon neutral service. Our website is also PAS 2060 certified carbon neutral.”

“Our albums are designed to be enjoyed, not just now but by future generations too.  We use fine art, archival quality papers and inks so your albums will last a lifetime and beyond.  The glue used to make your album is acid free, nontoxic and will not yellow over time.”

… So there was nothing else to do really but take my album out to a field somewhere and take some photos!  (much to the confusion and suprise on some dog walkers’ faces!)

Thanks to Olly & Kirsty my gorgeous bride and groom from 2011 whose wedding I chose to use for this album.  Takes me back – what a wonderful day that was at Dorset House School!

More photos soon of some of my mid-range albums and my standard A4 ones too….

I’m so keen to design another one of these beauties for someone that the first couple to book the top package that includes this album can have £50 off the final price!  🙂  (This is open to couples who’ve already booked – if you fancy upgrading just let me know!!) xx
