You can add custom text and graphics to the cover of nearly all Finao products; choose from traditional text or graphic die imprinting (debossing) with metallic foil or laser etching. And don't pass up the opportunity to imprint your studio brand in text or from your custom, reusable die.

Laser Cover Etching
Accent your orders with laser-etched cover text and graphics. Etching is a beautiful way to customize materials that cannot be imprinted, such as velvet, wood, acrylic, and metal. Apply any design from your .jpg file.
Studio Die Imprinting
We'll create a metal die from your design and keep it on file for you to use on nearly all Finao products.
Typeset Studio Imprinting
Increase referrals by adding your studio name to the inside front or back cover of your album with foil type imprinting. What better way to promote your brand?

Like many of our matted print boxes, the Casa™ base price does not include mats. This provides you the flexibility to add your favorite mats, order blank slip-in mats in packs of 10 or 25 with your box, or have us print and assemble your images for a ready-to-deliver-product.
Casa™ is also compatible with the Seldex Folio Box mat system for additional mat color and opening options. These quality slip-in mats can be ordered in packs of 10 or 25, depending on size. Or choose styrene-mounted lustre prints to present larger images in your Casa™. Styrene orders of less than ten images are subject to a surcharge.
Casa™ comes in two depths—Standard holds 10-12 mats and Deep holds 15-18. Contact us about custom sizes.
Slip-in mats are sold separately; have us print and assemble or mount on styrene (shown above). Mix and match the image-opening sizes. If you prefer your own prints, Casa™ is compatible with the Seldex Folio Box mat system.
Our mats are white with a white core and a subtle surface texture.
Add style with an optional v-grove accent around the opening.

Your matted prints should always be on display, so create a box that is worthy of a special place in your client's home. Design your box with the same cover options as albums and create a tailored setting for your art. Our downloadable Photoshop cover templates will get you up and running quickly.
Sample products are one of your best investments. There is no better way to present your quality work and sales options to prospective clients. The reality is that you can't sell what you don't show. A client will fall in love once they can see and hold your work in a beautiful finished product and imagine themselves as part of it. Many album brands look similar online; when they see and touch Finao products in person, the difference in quality and craftsmanship become obvious.
To help make this happen we offer generous studio sample discounts on almost every Finao and Seldex product every day. That's 25-40% off our regular prices when you need them, 365 days a year. We never make you wait for a sample sale, although sometimes we sweeten the deal even more with one. The discounts of 25%-40% and annual maximum quantities vary by product.
Sample products are imprinted with STUDIO SAMPLE and are not for resale to your clients or for personal, non-business related use.
