Cover Materials

These gorgeous materials complement your images however you present them. Seldex products are available with a large range of cover choices including luxurious leathers, contemporary linens, and elegant Asahi silk.

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 swatches. Your client will appreciate knowing exactly what to expect in their finished product.

Finao and Seldex are different companies and offer different color material choices for our products. We offer two different swatch collections and these cannot be used across the product lines. Finao creates your albums in New York, and Seldex in Australia, so we don't stock or have access to the same material choices.

The base price of your product includes your choice of any one of the linen, asahi, or buckram cover material options. Image covers are available for a small additional charge.

Slip-In Mats

Single mats are the most traditional choice of mat style that are most often supplied in folio print boxes worldwide. The beautifully textured, custom made board is what sets Seldex mats apart from the rest. They are made from premium quality, acid-free core and papers, and buffered with calcium carbonate for enhanced longevity and board stability. Available in two color combinations, and classic style or with a v-groove accent. Mats are available with 8x8", 7x10", 8x10", and 10x10" image openings, depending on box size.

The Shallow Folio Boxes come complete with 10 mats, the Standard with 15, and the Deep with 25. You have the flexibility to choose blank assembled or unassembled mats or have us print and assemble for a ready-to-deliver box. Assembled mats arrive with the mat and backing board attached and the photo slips in from the top. Unassembled mats arrive with the mat and backing board separate. The mat has double sided tape on the back so you can easily join the two pieces together. Unassembled mats are a favorite of photographers printing on thicker art paper as inserting these photos in an assembled mat can be challenging.

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 finished product and imagine themselves as part of it. Many albums look similar in online images—seeing Seldex products in person lets your client understand the difference that quality and craftsmanship make.

The Seldex Folio Box through Finao has 25% discounted studio sample pricing and applies to one item purchase per calendar year.

  • These rates apply year-round, you don't need to wait for a sample sale (although we do have them once in a while).
  • To ensure your discount is applied, you must indicate this when ordering; we cannot correct the pricing retroactively.
  • Coupons are not valid for sample orders unless indicated.
  • You can purchase samples in the same order as regularly-priced Seldex or Finao products.
  • If you have any questions regarding your annual sample allotment, please contact us. We are flexible and know that some studios may have multiple locations or different needs.

Sample products are not for resale to clients or for personal use. All sample discount offers are subject to change or discontinuation without notice. Products are marked STUDIO SAMPLE and are not for resale to customers. Please contact customer service for assistance with choosing, designing, and purchasing samples.


Share Your Work

We display samples of Finao and Seldex products on our website, in advertising, and at relevant tradeshows and conferences. We love to create these with the beautiful images of our Finao family.
