Ask any photographer and they’ll tell you how much they love to see their work in print. It can’t be just any print though, it has to be printed well. The printer has to take as much care printing as the photographer did composing, exposing and processing the photograph. I’ve looked at the work of a few companies when it comes to albums and there are some good, some not so much. For me, I always felt that the leather bound covers that they all produced were similar in quality, that was never the deciding factor although the Folio books do have gorgeous leathers. The big difference was the print quality and the paper they used to print it on. That’s why I love Folio Albums. The fine art books that they produce are beautifully put together, but most importantly, the printing is the best I’ve seen and the paper is a real pleasure to touch (Take it from me, I’m a bit of a stationary geek). I haven’t been this excited about paper since I discovered the Japanese Midori Notebooks.
Add to that the fact that they are made in Yorkshire, Barnsley to be precise, and they have a very strong environmental ethic (there’s no plastic packing here, it’s all recycled cardboard) and you can see why there really wasn’t a better choice for me personally.
I’ve just taken delivery of Joanne & Owens stunning album and it’ll be making it’s way up to Newcastle very soon, but before I took it up there, I wanted to share it with you. Once again, Folio Albums have done me proud. I can’t stop looking at it. I’m going to have to deliver it soon or I may never let it go….If you’d like to have a look at the wedding that went into this book, click to have a look at Joanne & Owen’s brilliant Crathorne Hall Wedding
Luckily, I have a few that I don’t have to let go as they are mine. If you book a consultation, I’ll be happy to show them to you.
