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.

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 MUSE™ base price includes a traditional cover in any one of our gorgeous non-leather cover 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 display piece with a cover image in a 4x4" cameo opening, a full cover photo wrap, or a photo panel. Or add style with an accent stripe in a second cover material. These low-effort additions will make a plain cover special. Except where noted, cover upgrades are available for albums sized 8x8" and larger.

Your slipcase album offers a selection of custom cover designs. Enhance your primary cover material with a 4x4" cover image opening or a stripe of contrasting material. Clients who see your upgrade samples will want them! 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

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.

Design

Album design is often a love it or hate it job. If you don't have the time, experience, or interest let us do it for you. Choose from six design styles, upload your images, and we'll do the work. $100 flat rate for up to three online revisions by our US-based, experienced designer. Check out her sample styles! Quotes for custom design are available.

Or if you like to see your images through to their final design, our downloadable templates and design guides for covers and spreads will get you up and running quickly. Just choose the styles that you and your client love to sell albums as unique as your images.

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 differences in quality and craftsmanship becomes 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 MUSE™ 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.
