To have and to hold - for decades.
A custom-made album is the perfect permanent home for cherished photos. Select fabrics or papers reminiscent of the bride’s gown, the reception’s color scheme, or the natural setting. Archival pages ensure that photos and other memorabilia are protected from yellowing.
If a picture is worth a thousand words, your most prized pictures are worthy of a custom album.
Beautiful beginning: Recessed cover panel displays a small photo.
Endsheets: Add texture and pattern. They can provide an element of surprise, evoking a color scheme or location and setting the stage for the photos that follow.
A home of its own.
A "clamshell" box is a superb way to display and protect a custom album. Drop-spine allows the box to open completely flat; box protects the book from light and dust. Can be displayed either standing or flat.
Materials & Sizes
Construction: Ardour albums typically have a fabric spine and back cover, with matching or contrasting paper (or cloth) on the front cover. I recommend archival pages with spacer tabs on the binding edge, so that the album closes flat when full. Endsheets can provide an element of decorative surprise.
Sizes: Most popular page sizes are 10" x 12" and 12" x 14". We have made albums as small as 5" x 5" and as large as 14" x 16".
Capacity: Albums with cased-in binding may hold up to 35 pages. Screw-post albums, as well as Japanese-style bindings, accommodate more pages.
Shown here: Japanese-style binding with satin ribbon. Smaller albums may use four holes; larger albums, five or six.
