Where Art Thou Folio?
Well, the answer is at Mark Osborne Photography, as I recently received a delivery of my first sample album from Folio! I’ve heard many great things about this album company and having visited their stand at the SWPP convention back in January, I wanted to try them out for myself and chose to feature the wedding of Catherine & Ed in this sample.
Folio are fine art albums printed directly onto either art white or art cotton paper and results in a beautifully stylish and contemporary finish. Each album is handcrafted to a bespoke design; this example album is 10″ x 10″ with 15 spreads (30 pages) but is also available in a larger 12″ x 12″ size. The album arrives in a slim and stylish box, which opens up to reveal it slipped inside a protective cloth bag. The cover itself comes encased in a range of sumptuous leathers (plum in this case) so you know that your special photos will last a lifetime! The final product is fantastic and I’m really happy to be able to offer these albums to present and future clients.
A nice feature is the option to have your studio name debossed on the back of the cover.
Another nice feature is that Folio are one of the few companies who offer full bleed printing over the middle crease which makes for beautiful full page spreads.
In addition to the standard size of 10″ x 10″ and 30 pages, the following upgrades are available:
- Upgrade size to 12″x12″ – £100
- 2 Extra Pages (1 spread) – £30
- Upgrade to Art Cotton Paper – £95
