An entire blog post on album cover options! There are that many to choose from! The high quality lay flat album requires the perfect cover. Here is some info that can assist you in selecting the right cover for you.  I have included the basic care info, as this can be a deciding factor. I have too frequently purchased clothes, only to realize later they are high maintenance dry clean only!!

The lowest maintenance nature-friendly faux leathers are perfect for families. They are PVC free, while having an incredible, soft supple texture. They can be spot cleaned easily with soap and water.

 

The faux ostrich leathers have an incredible texture! They offer the same eco-friendly composition, while being easy to clean.

 

Introducing the faux suede! These fabrics are again nature friendly, yet durable. These can also be spot cleaned easily with soap and water.

 

 

The covers also come in traditional book cloths. They also come in some not-so- traditional colours and textures. My 5 year old daughter likes the bright and bold “stiletto”, although I thought she would prefer the glittery “sunset strip”! These fabrics are paper backed for application, and should be spot treated with a dry cleaner product. The album company,  Finao, recommends “Absorene Book and Paper Cleaner”

 

The heavy duty bold fabrics are beautiful and very durable! If spills occur, blot immediately to remove excess fluid It can be cleaned with a misting of soap solution. The fabric should be very gently rubbed, to not damage.

Last but not least, the silks. The first samples are a nature-friendly man made silk, which can be easily spot washed with soap and water.

 

 

For the Non- vegans, the natural silks! They have a delicate, soft texture. These fine bo ok fabrics are also adhered with paper backing and should be delicately cleaned with a dry cleaner such as Absorene book and paper cleaner.

I have searched for a great quality photo album with a good price point, and finally found one!!

I love this line of Albums. It is a high quality hand bound album. It is printed on professional photographic paper, with better image quality than press printed books. The press printed books are printed on card stock with ink and can not achieve the full range of colours possible with photographic prints. The cover options are fabulous! There is something for everyone, from neutral linens, fine decorative silks, to soft yet durable eco- friendly “non-leathers” The cover of the album in the video is a replica ostrich “leather”. Another possible option is an image wrap.

My favourite feature is the lay flat seamless spine, allowing for the pages to lie completely flat without the image being lost in the crease.
