Our most versatile album

A matted album that can hold both vertical AND horizontal prints AND square!.

The mats are supplied loose, so you have full control over the layout.

Every time you order a square album, you'll be able to customise the mats to suit the prints.  Have a mix of vertical, horizontal and square mats.  Or just have the same shape throughout - totally up to you!  Place your photo print behind the mat.  Hold it in place with a small piece of double sided tape.  Then peel the outer pieces of tape off and fix the mat to the page.  

  • Outer size: 256mm W x 254mm H

    Inside: Blank ivory pages, ready for mats to be fixed with adhesive tape.

    Mat options: 5”x 7" for portrait OR landscape, 8” x 8" square, 7” x 7” square. You can mix & match or have the same size throughout.  When you get to checkout, please tell us in the notes section which mats you would like for your album.  Eg.  7- 5x7, 1- 8x8, 2- 7x7 for a 10 photo album.

    Mat colour: Ivory - textured, quality, acid-free mat board.

    Assembly: Line your print up behind the chosen mat window.  Fix it in place with double sided adhesive tape, then peel the tape pieces away from the edges on the back of the mat, and fix it to the page. 

    Different climates and temperatures can reduce the stickiness of adhesive tape. To make the pages permanent, we recommend also adding a few drops of photo glue to the edges.  (don't use it on your photos though).  

    Photo thickness: Up to 200gsm. Not designed for thick fine art prints.

    Photo print & assembly: We can print your photos and assemble your album for you.  We use our pro lab and print on lustre photo paper.  Please contact us for a custom quote. (due to different prints size options)  Prices - $5.20 per 5x7", $7.00 per 7x7", $7.50 per 8x8" print.  This price includes the printing AND assembly.  Please contact us if you'd like to use the print & assemble service.  We'll invoice you separately after we know what print sizes you need.

    How to personalise your album cover: 

    Click the PERSONALISE YOUR PRODUCT button to create your cover artwork.  We have hundreds of fonts, templates & graphics for you to use.  

    Can you supply your own artwork?  Yes, absolutely.  SVG files are best. *See below.  We can also print  PNG or high res JPG files. Please make sure the file you supply is high res, larger than 100kb.  Small file sizes risk quality print loss or rejection.  This will increase turn around time. 

    We also love *EPS, AI, PDF,  see "Other file types" below* 

    Canva:  We can print Canva designs!  When you save your design, download it as a PNG file with transparent background. Back in our design space, click the U DESIGN button.  Upload the PNG and position it on your product.  You can then add fonts and graphics from our collection to your artwork if you want to.

    Illustrator: Save your design as an SVG then upload it to our design space.   

    Photoshop: Save your design as a high res JPG or PNG then upload to our design space.  Make sure it is larger than 100kb.

    IMPORTANT:  Logos & text designs created in Photoshop risk quality print loss or rejection if they are not high res, because they don't have sharp edges.   PLEASE try to send us SVG or PNG files.  Ask your designer for one.  Or try creating in Canva.  Contact us with questions.

    *Other file type options:   .ai .pdf or .eps vector files that were created in Illustrator are usable.  We love these files!  But they can’t be uploaded to our site unfortunately.  The best way to use these is to upload a jpg or png version of your artwork with your order, then email your vector file to us.  Use your order number as the subject line.  We’ll know what to do.

     No minimum order.
