This page shows the multitude of extras that can be added to an album cover to make it that little bit special.

All of the items featured can be used on the Hand Bound Matted Range and the Hand Bound Digital Style.

Also some can be used on other styles...see below.


 

Blocking:

Any binding can be personalised with 'Names & Dates'.  We offer a couple of variations in placement;

The bottom right hand corner of the front cover or on the spine, both look great.

The spine offers two variations: directly onto the leather or you may choose to add labels of a contrasting colour.

Raised bands:

These are ridges across the spine, originally a structural part of the hand sewing of books, that give a two dimensional look, and feel.

When used with contrasting labels raised bands add the finishing touch.


Quarter and Half Bound Covers:

Quarter bound means one colour for the spine and another for the rest of the cover (the metal cover below is a quarter bound look).  Traditionally this style was for cheaper bindings, using a strong material for the spine only.

Half bound is a quarter bound style with the addition of corners covered in the same material as on the spine.  This style protects the areas that need to be hard wearing while allowing for a 'fancy' insert, ie hand marbled paper, silk, wedding dress lace, etc.


Cutouts

Any cover can have a cutout, you just tell us what size you need to insert a photograph, position & if you require a mat.

       


Engraving:

Our metal covers can be engraved by a computerized cutter.

Presently we are offering names on the front cover only but hope to add designs in the future...
