Elements™ - Adhesive Surface-Mount Album

The Elements™ raises self-mount albums to a professional level. With their slender page borders it's easy to mistake Elements™ for a flush mount album. By combining peel and stick assembly with style, they are perfect for the DIY photographer who prefers to print their own images or needs to keep albums in inventory for rapid turn around.

Elements™ has archival quality full adhesive pages for secure print mounting. Or have us print and assemble for a beautiful finished product with custom upgrades.

The option of including non-adhesive pages increases Elements™ versatility. Create custom guest books or print in a glossy metallic paper for stunning real estate, salon, high-end retail, or designer look books. Your clients will love them as classic business or individual portfolios.

Elements™ can be your studio's signature style.

Cover Materials

The base price of your Elements™ album includes your choice of any one of our non-leather cover materials. Or, for a reasonable cost, upgrade your cover to genuine leather.

Finao has a cover material to suit any subject or specialty—we serve the most diverse photographers in the industry. Weddings or seniors, babies or boudoir each need a distinct presentation. If you take pride in offering personalized service and a boutique experience, you will love the ability to honor the style and taste of each client.

Complement your images with a selection from our genuine and vegan leathers, velvets, linens, silks, and other fabrics. Add an accent stripe or two for subtle coordination or eye-catching contrast, or use etched wood veneer for richly textured cover panels.

Choose from our current swatches or recently discontinued While Supplies Last selections in the order form. If you have a favorite material from the past or are looking for something unique or specific, contact info@finao.com to see if we have what you need in our material collection.


A CAUTION: It is nearly impossible to see the true character of these materials online. Colors vary depending on device or screen calibration. We cannot 100% guarantee the appearance of choice based only on a digital image and recommend purchasing a swatch kit for use in conjunction with our online or PDF swatches. Your client will appreciate knowing exactly what to expect in their finished product.

Downloadable swatch PDFs are available on our Templates & Design Guides feature page.

Finao offers a wide selection of smooth, genuine leathers in a range of colors and classic, metallic, and distressed textures. We have many more cover options than we can display; contact us if you or your client is looking for an old favorite or something special. You can choose from our While Supplies Last overstocks for no extra charge (see Elements™ order form for WSL materials). The appearance of natural leather may vary slightly from hide to hide. Foil imprinting (debossing) is available on all classic leathers.

Cover Options

Your clients want a memory that reflects their individuality. Be the photographer who creates lifetime albums as unique as your images. Or design a favorite combination that represents your signature brand. It will only take a few minutes to explore our options and inspire your natural creativity.

The Elements™ base price includes a traditional cover in any one of our gorgeous non-leather materials. Genuine leather is available for a small upgrade charge. From there, it's a matter of choosing the custom options that are right for your client. Create a personalized piece with a cover image in a 4x4", 4x5", or 5x5" cameo opening, a full cover photo wrap, or a photo panel. Or add style with an accent in a second cover material gracing the spine or spine and back cover of your album. These low-effort additions will raise a plain cover to a whole new level. Except where noted, cover upgrades are available for albums sized 8x8" and larger.

Your slipcase album offers a range of custom cover designs. Add an image cover opening an accent stripe, or combine them for a designer look. Choose one as your studio signature style! Size the image files for cover cut-outs 1/4" inch larger than listed as we tuck the image under the cover surface. Size image files for indentations exactly as listed.

Pages & Printing

You've designed the cover, and now it's time for the best part—your images inside.

Finishing Touches

Little finishing touches complete the look and feel of your album.

Packaging

We believe our packaging should be just as beautiful as our albums, so each Elements™ album comes standard with client presentation-ready wrapping. We design packaging to allow you to open, inspect, and easily re-wrap an album before delivering.

For those extra-special albums or clients who want the best, we offer a choice of slipcase or clamshell album box that combine beautiful display with lifetime protection.

Note: Upgraded packaging options are custom fit to your album, so we build them after the album is complete. This will add a little extra time to your album delivery; please contact us if you have specific deadlines.

Don't let trying a photo panel or photo wrap cover intimidate you—our Photoshop templates make it quick and easy to create personalized image covers.

Studio Samples

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 when you need them, 365 days a year. That's 25% off our regular prices for up to three Elements™ albums in a calendar year. We never make you wait for a sample sale, although sometimes we sweeten the deal with one.

Sample products are imprinted with STUDIO SAMPLE and are not for resale to your clients or for personal use.


See Your Work in Our Samples

We create samples of Finao products to display on our website, in advertising, and for you to see in person at tradeshows and conferences. We design these with the beautiful images shared by you, our Finao family. We love to show off your amazing talent!

If we ask your permission to create samples with your images we will always credit your work and treat them with respect. If you love Finao and would like to share your images, let us know, and we are happy to consider them for sample display.
