A CAUTION: It is nearly impossible to see the true character of these materials online. Colors can vary greatly depending on your screen calibration. We recommend purchasing a swatch kit for use in conjunction with these online or downloaded swatches. Your client will appreciate knowing exactly what to expect in their finished product.

The base price of your playPAL™ includes your choice of any one of our beautiful handmade-paper covers. Because of the small-batch production of these materials, there may be slight variations in shade or texture. Samples are not included in our swatch kits, as they may be subject to change based on availability. If our vendors discontinue any choices we will attempt to replace them with similar alternates. This doesn't happen often, but it's always safest to check online swatch images before ordering or promising a specific paper to your client.
Handmade paper is a traditional choice as an album cover lining. Papers may vary slightly in color or texture, and selections are subject to change based on availability. Limited foil imprinting (debossing) is available on papers.
Even the littlest albums deserve to be special. That attention to detail will keep your clients coming back. The playPAL™ base price includes a modern cover wrapped in any one of our gorgeous handmade paper choices. Or create a low-effort personalized version with a photo wrap image cover. These companion albums are destined to become keepsakes.
PlayPAL™ has its own unique look with a flush-cut Euro cover paired with a clean, wrapped spine.
Pages & Printing
You've designed the cover, and now it's time for the best part—your images inside.
The playPAL features flush mount pages in Fuji Lustre photographic paper.
PlayPAL™ album size will match their parent album. The base price includes 10 leaves or 20 individual page sides, and the maximum recommended size with standard thin pages is 50 leaves/100 sides. Higher capacities require a custom consult.
Comes standard with thin style, white, back-to-back pages created from a dual-layer of portrait-grade photographic paper. We NEVER press-print. The thin page style will accommodate a large number of pages without excess weight.
A right or left side page start is determined by the parent album that playPAL™ duplicates.
Creased prints are standard for albums with thin style flush-mount pages as they enhance overall structure and stability.
Even tiny albums deserve quality. Our playPALS™ are printed on Fuji lustre portrait-grade paper.
Fujicolor Crystal Archive Professional Super Type PD Lustre. Optimized for digital lab printing, it yields stable, high image quality prints that make it an excellent choice for professional wedding, portrait, or commercial photography. Superb color image stability makes it Fujifilm's longest lasting paper yet.
We believe our packaging should be just as beautiful as our albums, so each playPAL™ 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.
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.
