nextONE™ - Exquisite Matted Album

Matted albums are the apex of elegance, but the skill to make them in traditional style is rare. PPA has honored both Finao's page mount and overlay mat styles as PPA HotOnes for the best traditional matted album and it's easy to see why!

This classic and timeless album is again popular for weddings, portraits, and boudoir. We offer an unconventional take on traditional with the freedom to mix flush with matted images and different paper types within the same spread. You won't need special software; it's as easy as designing a regular flush mount album. Finish your artwork with time-honored details and options.

nextONE™ is your next big success story.

If your couple wants a wedding album "just like Mom and Dad's" we can make it happen.

Cover Materials

Sometimes less is more. If your client wants a simple cover we can do that. Finao has a cover material to suit any subject or specialty—we serve one of the most diverse groups of 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 from our collection of genuine and vegan leathers, velvets, linens, silks, and more. Or add an accent stripe or two for subtle coordination or eye-catching contrast. Our wood veneers create richly textured cover panels, and handmade papers complete your album as unique front and back cover lining.

Mat Options

Matted albums are the most elegant and classic presentation for your images. They are resurging in popularity, especially for high-end celebrations. Custom tailor your matted album with a just-right combination of page-mount or overlay style, four colors of mats and liners to perfectly accent your images, and mat embossing for the finishing touch.

Packaging

We believe our packaging should be just as beautiful as our albums, so each nextONE™ 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 (materials can vary slightly from those shown.)

Your albums become a permanent home fixture with tailored packaging that combines a beautiful display with lifetime protection. For those extra-special albums or clients who want the best, we offer a selection of customizable slipcase and album boxes.

If you or your client have your heart set on a specific packaging option or style, please contact us for a custom consult.

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

Don't be intimidated—designing an elegant matted album, is easier than you think. If you have basic Photoshop skills you can combine matted and flush images like the pro that you are. Our downloadable templates and design guides for covers and spreads will get you up and running quickly. Contact imagepolice@finao.com if you'd like a review of your first design before ordering.

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 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.


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.

nextONE™™ series sample albums are 40% off our regular prices every day of the year—you never have to wait for a sale to get your Finaon discount. They will be marked STUDIO SAMPLE and are not for resale to clients. If you have any questions regarding your annual sample allotment, please contact us.
