Finao Swatch Collection - Swatches
Nothing beats physical swatches for gauging quality & color. Our current collection includes more than 100 generous samples of our carefully selected material and photo paper options in a discrete storage box with a magnetic closure.
You can choose the full or partial kits:
Full Swatch Kit Includes storage box and all current leather, non-leather, and photo paper swatch samples.
Leather Swatch Kit Includes storage box and all current leather, and photo paper swatch samples.
Non-Leather Swatch Kit Includes storage box and all current non-leather and photo paper swatch samples.
When making selections from online images please remember that colors can vary greatly from monitor to monitor and your client's screen may be far from exact. To ensure that your clients are satisfied, we recommend purchasing a swatch kit for use in conjunction with the online swatches (if you're not convinced, read to the bottom of this page).
To purchase individual replacement or old favorite swatches, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. This service is limited and not intended to be a substitute for purchasing a swatch kit.

Can I still order my old favorite cover materials?
No grief needed, most of your old favorites are still available.
While we can only fit a limited number of choices in the current kit, we have three to four times that many selections in our warehouse and are happy for you to use them. Many of you chose Finao because we are boutique and custom focused, with wild and wonderful creative options. Browsing them is more fun than a consignment boutique! Soon we will add a page displaying of all our vintage choices for you to peruse.
Hang on to your old swatches, they’re still useful. Many of our inactive materials are available in the order form "While Supplies Last" categories. We have varying amounts and won't be ordering more of these but can let you know how freely to offer them. Your old leather swatches are sized right for our current boxes, and on request, we can make non-leather ones too.
Can I use Finao and Seldex materials on the same products?
That's something we can't do. If you purchase both Finao and Seldex products, you will need to order two separate swatch collections. Finao
is the North American distributor for Seldex Artistic Album, an album and photographic products company in Australia. Seldex creates their products down under with their own material collection and we print and add the images once your order arrives in New York.
Do you charge for swatches?
Yes, there is a charge for swatches but we try to keep it reasonable. We offer partial kits with leather and non-leather options so that you can purchase the components you want or need.
NEW 2022 COVER MATERIALS AVAILABLE
We’re excited to announce that 22 brand-new swatches are available to update your swatch kits. These new cover materials include additions to our Classic Leather, Textured Leather, Vegan Leather, Linen, & Fabric material families.
We’re simply delighted about these new cover material options; we hope you will love them as much as we do!
A Note on Physical Swatches & Kits
It is nearly impossible to see the true character of these materials online. We always encourage our photographers to purchase a physical swatch kit to see each option's unique characteristics, texture, and hue. Colors can vary greatly depending on your screen calibration.
You and your client will appreciate knowing exactly what to expect in their finished product. Owning a swatch kit will help you reduce misunderstandings and the need for remakes. The better you know a product, the more effectively you can sell it.
