AlbumWorks by Fundy
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 40% off our regular prices for up to three ONE™ 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.
