Your Fine Art Album Design
Knowing where to start when selecting photographs for your album can feel overwhelming, so for your convenience I pre-design the first draft of your album. The photograph selection is usually based around the images within your slideshow. My aim when selecting those images is to create a well balanced album that flows nicely and includes a mix of details, portraits and candid moments.
While I select the photographs included in the first draft, you are in control of what happens next. Two additional drafts are included and within each you are able to request unlimited changes so unlimited image swaps, add additional images, and add extra spreads. Any drafts beyond this are charged at £50 per draft.
Typically, a 15 spread album contains around 50 photos, and a 30 spread album around 90. While albums are noted as 15 or 30 spread books, technically speaking you can have any number of spreads you wish for between 15 and 45. Extra spreads are £25 each.
The ordering process is really simple and outlined in 4 steps below;
- Complete the ‘Order Form’ near the bottom of this page. 50% of the album cost is due at the start of the design process and you can pay by bank transfer. I’ll pop you an invoice with payment details.
- Your first draft will will be available within 14 days for your comments.
- Your design will be updated based on your comments and returned for any further comments.
- Once you give me the green light, I’ll send you over an invoice for the balance and place the order once received.

6 × 6″ parent albums are smaller identical copies of your larger album.
They are made in exactly the same way as the 10 x 10″ main album. Same invisible crease. Same archival quality materials. As standard, 6×6 mini duplicates come in either our Pastel Fabric, Bold Fabric or Essential Cotton so you can coordinate with the larger albums if you like. Parent albums are £180 each or £330 for two.
Once the book design has been approved by you, I will send you a PDF proof to sign off on. Once that has been completed, I place the order for the book and it will take approximately 4-6 weeks (but can be up to 12 weeks in peak season) before it gets shipped back to me.
Once I receive the book, I will double check that it all looks amazing and send it out to you. From start to finish, the whole process should take around 8 weeks or less.
